“Would I like to be the lead girl? Who wouldn’t?”

—Bonnie Hunt

Introducing Bonnie! This adorable cow-print gal weighs it at just about 60 pounds and is about a year old! We think she’s the perfect size with all of the unbridled puppy playfulness you love with a little more maturity/progress than an actual “fresh” puppy.

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Bonnie has proven to be an eager and quick learner in her foster home! She is happy to nap and sleep the night in her crate without complaint, and she keeps it clean. She is also housebroken now, signaling her need to go outside by sitting patiently at the door. Bonnie is also enjoying learning new commands, and will reliably “sit”, “lay down”, “stay” or “leave it” when instructed. She even knows commands like “outside”, “follow”, “bed”, “crate”, and her personal favorite: “walk”! 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Bonnie has been around kids and adores them! Because she sees them as playmates, she’s likely not good for a home with smaller children. But older kids? Send them her way! 

We think Bonnie would enjoy a similarly playful canine sibling, but would likely irritate a less energetic dog. She even would be spectacular in a only dog home! As for cats, unfortunately Bonnie sees potential… for snacks rather than friends. She will need a cat-free home. 

Behavior around People

Bonnie loves making friends! She is great with humans as long as they respect her… which hey, that makes a ton of sense! As long as her new friends are good to her, she’ll be good right back. She loves meeting new people and everyone is her bestie. 

Exercise Needs

Bonnie is still young and very much the epitome of “big puppy energy.” The good news is that she’s down for however you’d like to tire her out: Fetch? Absolutely. Go for a walk or (better still) a run? She’ll race you. Swimming? Oh, yes! She does require quite a bit of exercise to tire her. If you’re just looking for a couch buddy, Bonnie is not your girl. But if you want a workout pal who will then wiggle into your lap, give you plenty of kisses, and snuggle the night away, Bonnie can’t wait to meet you.

Vacuum cleaners are Bonnie’s greatest fear (which is sort of comical, given how unafraid she is of everything else), but she says she’ll endure yours if you’re going to be her fun-loving forever home. Do you have a Bonnie-shaped hole in your family? Contact us today!
