Little Dutchess' mother was clearly a JR. We don't know who his father was. This gorgeous, 18 pound, pup is affectionate, healthy, and good natured. She loves lap and couch time and to expend energy outside, so a secure fenced yard would be ideal. She barks when someone is at the door, is slow to warm up to strangers but when she does she will find their lap! Dutchess is in temporary foster with young children and another dog; she has shown no interest in cats. This is a smart playmate who knows many commands and listens with a snap of your fingers. Last pic is with her buddy. Apply on CrisisDogsNC.org under heading Forms. Excellent vet reference and virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year round heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced yard but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
