DemiMoore here! I'm a cuddly and loveable little dog who's looking for a forever home whom will let me bring my son with me. See, I was brought into a shelter in Houston, Texas with a bunch of my puppies because there were too many of us in the home. Thankfully a bunch of us were pulled from the shelter and get a new chance in MN. My son is pretty shy. I on the other hand enjoy being center of attention but love my son to much to leave him behind. I also am his biggest supporter so to seperate me from him puts him into a sad state only I can get him out of.
I'm crate and pee pad trained, but I do go outside on a schedule and am working on being one with the leash. So of course I am the definition of a lap dog and or purse dog. ;) I do just fine with other dogs and am not a barker. I would be perfect for an older retired person who just likes to relax and hang out. Because I'm a bit older and a more refined lady, I would not like a hectic household, so please no young children (older would be just fine though)! I do like younger kids but I have to stay true to my son and he is not fond of anyone who could steal my heart away from him. Again I am working on my leash training, so I would really love a nice yard that I can wander around and lay in during nice sunny days. I also love a good daily brushing to keep me feeling nice and fluffy! :)
I was treated for heartworm disease but due to my past heartworm disease I do have an enlarged heart, to help support that and keep my lungs free of fluid I do need to take daily medications, those medications do cause me to pee more often. There is two different medications but they are pretty affordable.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
