Available For Adoption

Bambi is between 1 and 2 years old and weighs about 13 pounds. She was an owner surrender to a county kill shelter in central Florida, after she'd had a litter of pups. Bambi wasn't in very good condition when we rescued her from the shelter; she was very thin, wormy, her coat was in bad condition, and she had fleas and mites. After much attention and care by her foster-Mom and Vet, Bambi has cleaned up all her skin and worm conditions, and has put on weight. She's now the picture of health with her glossy brown and white coat.
Still being a youngster, Bambi loves to play. She loves to play tug with her foster sisters and will race around the back yard like a greyhound! Bambi will chase and retrieve a small tennis ball over and over again. She also loves to chew on raw rib bones or antlers. Bambi gets along with other dogs wonderfully. She's a little wary of strange people and children at first, but just stays away until she's ready to greet them. She has not been introduced to cats while in foster care.
She's housebroken with a doggie door and would do well without one if her new family would let her out in a timely manner. Bambi doesn't have any accidents being left in the house all day while her foster-Mom is working. She's learning her basic obedience and is a quick learner. Bambi's foster-Mom says that she's a real pleasure to take for a walk; she doesn't pull and stays by your side. She sleeps in her crate at night and has free roam of the living areas with her foster sisters during the day, with no destructive behavior or "accidents". Bambi is a young, lovely girl who needs a furever home and family of her own. Could you be that family?
