Prime - 1 year old
Meet Prime! This gorgeous girl came to us with her sister Loxa after being rescued as a young pup off the streets of Mexico. Due to their difficult start in life, they are very nervous in unfamiliar situations, but their confidence has come a very long way since being in our care. For playful Prime and Loxa to live their best lives, they will need to remain together, and may also benefit from having another well-balanced, happy dog in their forever home who can match their energy and puppy play drive. Since lots of activity and loud noises are still frightening to them, we are looking for a quieter space, with no young children. A fully fenced yard (no invisible fencing please) is an absolute must for Prime and Loxa. When meeting new people, they will be very shy and standoffish initially, and therefore we are looking for a human or family who will understand and fully respect their need for time and space in order for her to feel safe enough to blossom and show their sweet and sassy side. Once they trust, the love and affection will follow. Trying to force this on them before they are ready will only cause them to retreat in fear. Prime also dislikes being confined, and therefore crates seem to be a source of stress and anxiety for her at this time, but her Foster Mum continues to work on making the crate feel less scary for her. Both girls most preferred place to sleep is in bed snuggled up with their Foster Mum which is where they feel safest. Leash skills continue to improve, and both seem to walk best when with another confident dog at ttheir side, otherwise they are more skittish and timid of the sights and sounds around her. Housetraining is still a work in progress, and they need to be taken outside frequently throughout the day to help reinforce this. Neither dog has a mean bone in their body. They are pure sweetness and love which you will see once they know they are safe and loved, and only then will you see the immense potential in these beautiful, gentle souls. The photos below are all of Prime. Please visit Loxa's bio to view her gallery.
