Scruffy, scrappy, sweet-as-pie and smarts for days – that’s who our little Pigeon is! She has a ton of terrier personality in a 17 lb package and will charm her way into your heart in no time.

Most adorable Pigeon behaviors: She’s an 8-ish yr old lady who acts like a puppy, proudly carrying stuffed toys around the house, playing fetch, and bouncing around in sheer joy with her kids. She LOVES kids! She also takes treats gently and is an A-List snugglebug. She’ll spoon with you on the couch, curl up at your feet while you work, but show you her moves if you throw a toy (fetch is her favorite game, but also tug-o’-war, because terrier!).

Pidge is as bright as a shiny new penny, picking up the rules of the house quickly. She knows “sit” and “drop it”, and she’s food-motivated and would love to learn more tricks. She’s house trained, enjoys her crate, and we think she was in a home that didn’t allow her on the bed so she doesn’t jump up even when invited (you can train her or just enjoy the leg room). She pulls a little on leash so continuing the training started by her fosters is a must for enjoyable jaunts. She’s very responsive to vocal correction too.

Our lil bird is not a huge fan of felines. They’re about her size and can be terrifying, but maybe fun to chase? She’s calm around other dogs and would be fine in a home with other canines, but really she’s more of a people-dog than a dog’s dog (ie. she’d rather hang with you). She’s a perfect balance of affectionate and independent, content to snooze near or far, and come up for a belly rub now and then. No yard required, Pigeon doesn’t spend a lot of time outside – she’ll go out to do her business and come right back in. All she needs is some leadership (she is a terrier!) and enough room to chase her toy and run zoomies. Respectful teenage kids welcome, dogs optional, sans cats.
