Hi, I'm Reese. I’m adopted!
Poodle Bichon Frise | Adult | Female | Small
Reese was adopted March of 2021!
Reese is a really cute girl who has had a very difficult life. She suffered years of neglect and poor treatment. Fortunately she was removed from very bad conditions, and taken to the shelter. From there, she was rescued by our group.
Reese had to have very large bladder stones removed, in addition to dental surgery. We are looking for a very dog-savvy adopter, who will be patient, kind, and understanding as she continues to heal emotionally. She must go to a quiet home with few visitors. If not introduced carefully to new people, she may feel cornered or scared, and has been known to snap.
All that being said, Reese is really smart, very loyal and affectionate once she trusts you. She did really well with her first foster parent, and is enjoying life in her current foster home. Reese loves to play fetch, chase her favorite toy ducky and flying pig toy, and is a wonderful walking buddy. She is very good at settling into a routine, and will happily chill out when it’s time for movie night. ( She still may want to play fetch). She also likes to bring her food bowl to you when she is hungry. (It’s adorable).
We know the right person is out there who has experience with dogs that need special care. Reese is a precious companion waiting to find her home where she will feel safe and adored forever.
