Hello! My name is Tina. I’m new to California and looking for my forever family. I may have had a pretty crazy life so far, but now I just want to do “normal dog stuff”. I love naps, cuddles, walks, treats, squirrels, naps, bully sticks, naps… you get the picture! My friends at Rocket Dog have decided the perfect word to describe me is “lovely”. I think humans are lovely, too!
Ok, here’s my story: I spent my whole life (4-5 years?) as a stray in Puerto Rico. When a local rescue group finally found me, I tested positive for heartworm, and was so emaciated that they didn’t even know I was pregnant! I went to a foster home in Puerto Rico where I had 4 beautiful puppies. They came to California with me and they’ve all been adopted. I’m perfectly healthy now. When you meet me, you’d never know I had such a rough life. I’m ready to start fresh.
I am confident, wiggly, and affectionate. My foster mom here in California says I’m a perfect houseguest. I spend most of the day napping. I alternate between my dog bed and the sunny spot in the backyard. I’m perfectly potty-trained. I rarely bark, so the loudest sound you’ll hear from me is my snoring! I love going for walks and don’t pull too much. Sometimes I get a little uncomfortable when I meet other dogs on-leash but we’re working on it. I’ve made lots of doggy friends at Rocket Dog and in my foster home so I wouldn’t mind having a four-legged sibling!
I’d like to have a family that will take a gentle, positive approach to training. I might be a mix of Boxer and Staffordshire terrier and I weigh around 55lbs. I want to be an amazing representative of my breed so Rocket Dog will prioritize applicants who will help me with that mission.
If you’re looking for a gentle soul to love and be loved by, we might be a great match. Fill out an application and a volunteer will be in touch. (AS/BJ).
