Sweet, young Mitzi was 8 months old when she was found stray near Forest City Arkansas. The Forest City Animal Shelter found a temporary foster who could take her and see her through puppy delivery. A few weeks later Mitzi was a momma of 9 absolutely adorable pups Even though she was a pup herself Mitzi was an amazing momma All of her pups have been adopted Mitzi was then spayed and also treated for heartworm She’s strong, and recovered wonderfully from all!
Through it all Mitzi is still a puppy herself Under 2 years old, she loves to play with big energy Her besties are big male dogs She loves to find big boys who like to wrestle and chase. She’s also amazing with puppies as she’s still a puppy herself!
Mitzi spent over 8 months with a family who cares for a pack of dogs and puppies She can get along with everyone. Some dogs (mostly female), however, are not fans of dogs with big energy bursts. Mitzi does not always take corrections well from female dogs who are not alpha - she will scuffle if corrected by a non-alpha female
When Mitzi is not playing she’s at your feet or on your lap She wants to be by a person as much as possible Can’t get enough love and petting and snuggling. At the same time she’s fine when left in a bedroom alone or crate alone At times on car rides she begins a little stressed if the stress is ignored she settles in 5 minutes When praised for settling down, she then gets super relaxed
She has not been tested with cats but hasn’t shown any issues with puppies of all sizes
When new people come to our house I advise them to ignore her entirely (no look, no touch, no talk) until she settles down I take this same strategy every time I walk in the door myself With her energy this strategy is incredibly important to continue to reinforce expectations of being calm before getting love.
She loves walks but is still in need of leash training She has had some leash training and can be amazing with a little one on one work. She is one of those dogs that Cezar Milan would first take on a 10 mile hike and the do training
Mitzi is a perfect match for someone who loves to cuddle with their fur baby. She needs lots of exercise and would love a big brother!
