Ooh La La! If you are looking for a classy, mature, petite (14 pound), French companion, then I am the girl for you. I can be a tease, and act very happy to see you, wagging my tail and smiling, until you reach for me. Then I run and play hard to catch. It looks like a game, but really Im afraid. I get a little nervous around strangers. When I get to know you better and get comfortable with you, then I may like this game of chase. I have improved a lot recently, as I have gotten to know new people. I have let some of my favorites catch me, and I take treats from those I am comfortable with. I like to go outside and love, love, LOVE my doggie friends! So much so that sometimes when I see them I can be extremely playful which some of my doggie friends dont like. I need a confident brother or sister who will help show me the ropes, but who will also be OK with my enthusiastic nature. After all, girls just want to have fun!



I will also need a lot of work on leash walking, so I need a home with a secure yard with a 6 fence. Yes, I can jump that high! I always wanted to be an Olympic pole vaulter. I prefer peace and quiet, so I need a home with no children under the age of 16, and with very patient pet parents who will let me progress at my own pace because I can get a little snappy when I get scared or nervous. But, like any French woman, I might be worth the wait!

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with young children. Homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. Many of our dogs will need fenced yards and a confident dog in the family. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience. Learn about mill dogs and fill out an application at our website: http://nmdr.org If you submit an application, please watch your spam folders as their emails land there and give us 48 hours to get back to you - there are a lot of other dogs hoping that their new persons application is being processed as well.
