Dottie Medium Female Terrier, Pit Bull / Terrier, Bull Located in Foster
About Me: My name is Dottie and I'm a very special girl. The staff at SPCA aren't sure of my history, but it couldn't have been good. When I arrived I was so fearful I was practically catatonic- I would just curl up in the corner of my kennel and shake. Then I went to foster where I had a long road of recovery ahead of me. Slowly but surely, I became the adorable, quirky girl I am today.

Personality: By no means am I a confident, social butterfly. I might not ever be. However my fear has turned into curiosity and I get braver and braver every day. Now I'm just more anxious than anything, my foster parents considered renaming me Nervous Nellie! Despite my nerves, I'm a total sweetheart to the core, and my foster parents say I'm incredibly endearing. I don't crave attention but I do like to follow you around the house, wagging my tail, hoping for some treats!

Likes: Let's start with food- can't get enough of the stuff. I'm peanut butter's #1 fan and giving me some is certainly a shortcut to my heart. I also LOVE furniture, namely the couch and your bed. I'm most comfortable when laying on the furniture with you, and that's when the petting and snuggling happens. Once I get to know you, I'll gift you with some kisses too.

My Dream Home: I'll need a calm, quiet house with a securely fenced in yard. I'd prefer an adults-only home, but any kids would have to be teens or older. I obviously need to be allowed on the furniture, so there's no room for kids anyway!

Dogs: Yes please- having another friendly, confident dog in the home is a must! Other dogs teach me how to be brave, and how to be playful. I sometimes wrestle with my foster brothers in bed at night.

My perfect hoomans: They'll be incredibly patient, loving, kind and have a passion for animal rescue. It's best if at least one of my owners is male, as I tend to be more comfortable with males-both human and canine! While my confidence may continue to improve, my owners will need to love me for the sweet, adorable weirdo that I am today.

I'll always be special- I might not ever want to go on walks, run over to you when called, learn tricks, or be considered a NORMAL dog, but I'll make your heart melt every day. My foster mom created an online journal for me, you can see my journey by visiting https://dottiediaries.tumblr.com/
