“Pearls were accidents, and the finding of one was luck, a little pat on the back by God or the gods or both.” – John Steinbeck, The Pearl

Welcome Pearl! This precious girl is 11-months old and about 30 pounds at the moment, but we think she may gain another 10 or so before she’s fully grown! 

Pearl is pretty new to housebreaking and crate-training, but is she getting better every day. She is able to sleep all night long, and she doesn’t need to be let out for a midnight bathroom break. She knows that she is supposed to go outside to potty, but she’s still learning how to tell her foster mom when it’s time. Pearl is getting used to her crate, but she won’t go in on command yet. She doesn’t love that she’s been sequestered from everyone else in the house, but after a few minutes she’s able to settle down and relax.

Pearl LOVES spending time with other dogs, and she particularly loves to cuddle with her big brother Mango; she would love to be in a home with some dog friends. Based on what we can tell so far in the time we’ve had Pearl, she seems like the kind of girl everyone loves to be around!

When Pearl meets a new face, she can be on the bashful side, but if the person has a treat, she is very quick to overcome that shyness and will be their new best friend. Pearl prefers to be around people, but she can be slow to give affection. If she’s giving away a kiss or lays her head down on your lap, you know you’ve made it! 

Pearl is getting more adjusted to the world every day! Foster mom says she’s even started venturing into the fenced yard to run, jump, and play. Like a lot of puppies her age, Pearl definitely benefits from getting outside and getting some of those puppy wiggles out. Running around outside, chasing a ball, or daily walks would be great exercise for her, and once she gains some more confidence, she might like a trip to go play with some friends at the dog park. Once she’s had her exercise for the day, this girl loves to settle in on the couch for some cuddles and a nap.

This pearl of a girl may not have had the best beginnings in life, but she is sure to shine in the right setting. Could it be with you? Contact us today!
