Rockin Paws: Meet Pearl

Say hello to Pearl! Pearl is Anna Kinkade’s latest foster baby and she is so sweet! Loves to cuddle and loves her people. She will do well with or without dogs, but it will take a little bit for her to warm up to both dogs and humans, as she is very shy at first, but once she opens up, hold on to your hat! She is kennel trained but not housebroke. Pearl will need a very patient family as she’s is very timid. The 3-3-3 rule will 💯 be her (please google 3-3-3 dog rule for explanation). She will need a family that is willing to help her come out of her shell, introducing her to new places and people but also accept she just may always be a shy dog, and that’s okay too. Young children are not recommended, as sudden movement and the unpredictability of young kids do scare her and put her on edge, older kids are totally fine.

She’s a typical puppy, will need potty training and lots of toys as puppies like to chew. She is a total sweetheart and has a very loyal, loving personality and she is a smart dog and does learn quickly.

We do not know any of her background as she came to us from a rescue in Missouri. Our guess is she is a pitbull, boxer, and possible lab mix. Our guess is she is about 12 weeks old. She has been spayed, chipped, and is current of appropriate vaccinations.
