Our pretty Sisi is a delicate soul, who needs a strong nurturing vibe in her adopter. Three years old, Sisi was dumped by her owner into the perilous Animal Control system which is just as far from a safe haven as a frightened dog can get.

Sisi exhibited some stress induced fearful behavior at the Shelter Vet exam, and that earned her a Cautionary behavior rating based on the Vet's poke and prod session. We decided to invite this pretty girl into our rescue so that she could relax and get her bearings.

Sisi has come out of her shell beautifully. She loves affection and will warm and quickly become devoted to her person. Sisi would love to join the active home of a single or couple who can offer a stable, secure environment. A calm home is best for Sisi, without the frantic pace of small children and frequent visitors. Sisi would be happy in a multi-dog home, with another calm dog, or two, and we think she'd be fine with cats.

We'd describe her as an insecure girl, suspicious of change, and the shelter experience has shaken her core a bit. Sisi needs a strong pack leader who can provide reasonable exercise and mental stimulation. A couple of brisk leash walks a day, plus focussed play and will
keep Sisi happy and balanced.

Weighing only 10 pounds, Sisi is a small girl, who appears to be a creative mix of Pappilion and Rat Terrier. In Sisi, we see the Pap fringed coat, with fluffy pantaloons, and black and white coloring. There's a bit of the Rat Terrier influence that adds stature and size. Sisi is a one of a kind beauty.

Our girl has excellent house manners and is crate trained. She is housetrained, although, adopters must be patient with the occasional accident during Sisi's transition to a new home. She is a super car passenger, and loves to travel.

Sisi is in excellent health, and is spayed. She is vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper and bordatella. She has been microchipped and de-wormed and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Sisi, please write to [email protected] or call Denise at 720-903-0636 for more info.
