Dottie Medium Spayed Female Terrier, Bull / Mix Located in Foster Home
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: While I'm not a social butterfly, my fear has turned into curiosity and I get braver and braver every day. 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. I've also recently discovered the joys of giving kisses and playing with toys!

My Dream Home: I'll need a calm, quiet house with a securely fenced in yard. I'm not a fan of the leash so I stay in shape by running laps in the yard! I'll need an adult only home as kids would probably be too much for me. 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.

Cats: I haven't been around them yet, but based on my sweet temperament I think I could totally have kitty siblings! We'd just have to take it slow while we make sure.

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.
