Welcome Bonnie! This 5 pound bundle of joy is around 1 year old, and loves to snuggle up to you.

Bonnie is still learning the in’s and out’s of potty training and crate training. Her Foster Mom reports that Bonnie doesn’t have accidents if she is taken out regularly, but that she is still trying to figure out her own way of signaling when she needs to go outside to do her business. If you give her a treat, she will go into the crate – but she will whine for a little bit until she settles in. We hope with more exposure and practice with her crate that she will soon view it as a second home!

Bonnie has been around various four-legged friends, both cats and dogs! With cats she either wanted to play with them or cuddle with them, but would respect the cat’s wishes if they wanted their own space. With dogs she also did well with likesize dogs and medium sized dogs, but larger dogs did make her nervous – which seeing as she’s only 5 pounds that’s understandable! We think that with her personality it would be better if she could have a more formal introduction with doggy friends before having playdates. But, that being said she does to well at the dog park! 😊 She’s also done well with a pre-teen kid she met, but it’d probably be best if her future family didn’t have kids younger than that since she is so small and a shy. She is a little shy with strangers, but once she knows you y’all will be best friends for life.

While Bonnie is anxious around loud noises and really sudden movements, she is not afraid of heights as shown by her trying to do a piggy-back ride on Foster Mom’s shoulders! She also loves to dance, and occasionally growls at her reflection when she’s feeling particularly brave. She doesn’t need a lot of exercise, but will play if able to. When playtime is over she likes to spend her time being a couch potato, or trying to find ways of getting and keeping your attention!

Bonnie is waiting for her forever family! If you think you would be a good fit for this sweetheart, contact us today!
