Meet our ever so sweet darling – Darla! This pretty little lady is even prettier in the fur. She’s a petite gal, under 50 pounds, in a gorgeous white and sable coat. She had a rough past that left her scarred inside and out, but her future is bright and beautiful just like herself. Darla brings a smile to your face with every glance her way, and she’s eager to meet the family who will love and nurture her til the end of days.
Darling Darla is about 3 or 4 and she’s super playful when she’s in her comfort zone. Even with all that she’s been through, she’s such a well mannered girl. She’s very easy to care for and doesn’t complain about a thing. She enjoys the friendship of other dogs with mellow energy but can be a bit of a resource guarder when it comes to toys and attention. She’d be awesome as an only pet and we’d prefer it that way because of her guarding tendencies. Darla met a semi-feral barn cat in her foster home and was such a polite and calm girl! We’re pretty sure she’d be able to live with a savvy feline friend in her future home, and she’d probably enjoy the company. She has a slight hitch in her step thanks to whatever left that big scar on her leg but she still loves her walks and frolicking with friends as long as she gets a break now and then.
Quiet and chill herself, Darla’s looking for dog savvy folks to match. She’d enjoy a peaceful adult home with low foot traffic but gave us the okay on older, respectful children too. A yard is a must because too many walks on hard surfaces are not good for her bum leg. She can be sensitive to loud and sudden sounds so a single family home in a tranquil neighborhood is desired. Sometimes Lil D can be timid around new people, especially men, but with patience and a little bit of time she learns to trust the people who care about her. She promises to reward your effort with lots of kisses and cuddles for the rest of her life, and snuggling up with this one is definitely worth it! Darla’s great in the car and stellar in her crate. She’s been learning patience and impulse control while in her foster home as well as the basics, such as sit, down, shake, bang and rollover (for belly rubs)! She’s very gentle with people and just a gentle soul to begin with, and we hope her past becomes a forgotten memory soon.
If you’re a mellow, responsible family with a tranquil setting, home and yard, please reach out to us today and ask about our charming girl!
