VAQUITA – Mexi-Mix / 4 years / 16kg / F-Spayed
Vaquita is a whole new girl these days and we could not be happier! She has come a long way in the past weeks with her foster family.
In the past, she can be a bit of a nervous nelly, and sometimes had trouble settling inside, but she has learned to cope, and can settle within just a few minutes now. Thunder is still scary, but for dog owners, they know this is pretty common. She is off her meds and is gaining confidence daily.
In her foster home, she is with 2 picky dogs, but they both accepted her right away (score 1 for V). Each day when she sees her friends, she gets more and more excited and she really looks forward to her social time and her exercise. She is a bit of a foodie at home, turning her nose up at regular food, and is more than happy to dine on raw or dehydrated instead. (After the year she has had, we are more than ok with pampering her a bit)
To date, she has had no serious apps, but we will know when the right one comes along. For those of you that have rescued, you know they type of rescue dog that aligns with the “who rescued who” phrase. Vaquita needs rescue – that we know! She needs a family that will be unconditional with her. No cats, but a dog pal (no foolish dogs please…someone of similar age/temperament would be great for her). She is a dog that has many people loving on her. She isn’t perfect, she may get nervous at times, but she is so trainable and so ready for the next chapter in her life.
We picture her beyond city life, kid free, with humans who are keen to get in sync with her. Her nervous behaviour has a pattern and is really no biggie.
If you are interested in giving her the unconditional love that she deserves, please do apply at www.dibsrescue.com. Her adoption fee is $750.
