Description
This little camera shy beauty is ready to find her forever home!
Her foster family have a lot of great things to say about her :)

Say hello to pretty little Petrie! What an absolute doll. This knee-high girl is the cutest foot warmer you could ask for. She came in to our house very timid, and afraid of her own shadow. Now she’s my wagging little side-kick!

While still skittish – she is definitely a little love bug, and immediately sits by your feet, and wiggles for some attention. She trusts women and girls quicker than men, but with some time really warms up to anyone. You’ll know you’ve won her over once she starts flopping for belly rubs – EVERY chance she can J.

She is completely house trained, knows basic commands like sit, come and wait (for dinner). Although she struggles with wait and still eats like it may be her last meal! She is super playful in the mornings – and leaps off our deck as if she is trying out for agility classes. She is very respectful of her two foster siblings. One is grumpy – and she gives him space. The other is super playful, and they exhaust each other outside running and wrestling.

Petrie is kennel trained, but that hasn’t been necessary. No accidents, no destructive behavior at all. She has been caught pilfering our recycle bin a few times, and for some reason cannot resist a toque on the floor! She is very easily corrected with voice commands – and never runs away with whatever prize she’s stolen, just stops and guiltily lets you take it back.

She’s still not quite sure what to do with dog toys, sometimes she’ll grab one in her mouth and zoom around the yard. However, fetch is still too scary for her – the throwing part causes her to head for a safe spot every time.

This little pup is amazing – she’s food motivated, eager to please, respectful and calm. Petrie will make a wonderful addition to any family.

Petrie is approx 3 years old and would do best in a home with another playful social pup and a fenced yard is a must. Petrie's adoption fee is $350 and includes her vetting. To apply to adopt, please complete our adoption application on our website, www.hullshaven.org!
