Dot came to us when her previous owner could no longer care for her at this developmental stage. She is a young, active dog, and will thrive with attention, guidance, and appropriate training.

Dot is unsure of herself in new situations, and is a bit hesitant when meeting new people. As she appropriately experiences new places and people with us, she is building confidence, and learning new things equal good things! We are already seeing her confidence build, and she's feeling comfortable with people quicker. You may need to visit her at CVHS more than once for her to fall in love with you. Once she has warmed up to someone, she loves lap snuggles, playing with toys, and running in our yards. She's working on her leash skills, and will need someone to continue with her Positive Reinforcement training.

Dot's previous owner reports that she lived with children over 9 years old and with other dogs, and would love a dog friend. While she has been with us, she has LOVED playing in the yards with other dogs. She's a rough-and-tumble kind of play-style, and loves to be chased. She cannot live around small prey animals, such as chickens or cats.

A 5-week Good Manners training course is included in Dot's $350.00 adoption fee. Please call the Adoption Center at 802-476-3811, or email, to schedule a time to talk to an adoption counselor about Dot, and to determine if you should meet her.
