Hey y'all! I'm Barbie but my foster family calls me Barbie Jean the beauty queen! I'm your normal happy go lucky puppy who loves everything and everyone! I'm crate trained and sleep through the night but do whine just a bit before settling down. I'm officially potty trained on a schedule, my foster mom and dad said I haven't had any accidents since arriving at their home. I'm currently living with 7 other dogs of all sizes but mostly big and get along great with all of them. The two small
that live in the house don't appreciate my love for them and tell me off and I'm super respectful and just leave them alone like they wish. I think cats might be a bit too much for me to chase but my foster family doesn't have any so it's hard to say. Foster mom was worried that being from Texas, I would not do well with the weather or snow but I think it's great and enjoy rolling around and playing in it!
I would love an active family who will take me to training classes and show me how to be the best puppy I can be. I already know sit and I'm working on other commands. I'm super food motivated so foster mom said it's been really easy to teach me new things.
From Barbie's Foster mom: We don't normally foster puppies but she's been a great little house guest! She's super respectful and loves to cuddle with blankets on your lap! Her heart is huge and I know she will make a family super happy!
