Hey everyone! My name is China. I came from Texas originally.
China is very shy and afraid and will need time to warm up to her new family.
She is timid and shy and will need a patient family that will allow her to warm up and come out of her shell. She is afraid of being touched at first, but after a few weeks she is ok being held. She came with another dog and follows him for confidence. However, she would do fine as an only pet as long as her new family gives her space. The first week she did not want to eat, but eventually and with enough bribery she ate.
She will need a family that is willing to give her the time and patience to be the best version of herself.
She may do well in an apartment setting or in a home with an unfenced yard as long as proper safety precautions are taken, such as double-leashing. She is still getting used to the Minnesota weather, so she don't love going outside to potty, but she is puppy pad trained! Hopefully she'll get better at this when the weather improves. :)
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
