Sweetie Pie was surrendered to a shelter because her owners did not want her any longer. She is approximately 8 years old and weighs about 8 pounds. She is a beautiful girl that had some skin irritation from fleas. Her skin is doing much better now and she has been to the groomer to have a well deserved spa day.
Sweetie Pie is a very sweet girl that wants to be close to her people. While she is not necessarily a lap dog, she likes to be able to see her people. She doesn't waste any time outside when taking care of her business. She really prefers her person to go with her outside when she goes so she can feel secure.
Sweetie is feeling much better now that she has had her teeth cleaned. She is even starting to play with toys in short spurts of time. She can be timid when approached but if you give her chin rubs she warms up quickly. She will even talk to you while you pet her to display her delight in the attention. If you are looking for a loving companion, then Sweetie Pie is your girl. She does well walking on a leash and likes to snuggle up close for a nap or at bedtime.
