Rain? Oh my! this little girl is a genuine heart melter! Sweet, gentle and sensitive, she values companionship above all else and there’s no place she’d rather be than on your knee.
She is always checking in on her people just to see how they’re doing. Rain loves her people so much, she’ll actually steal your socks from the laundry hamper and carry them around in her mouth.
There is no doubt that Rain is a sensitive girl and like many sensitive dogs, she finds the world a scary place when you’re not around. She needs a best friend who’ll support her as she learns that it isn’t so scary after all.
Rain loves her walks, and gets excited when she sees her leash. She does well around others on walks. Rain also knows her commands – here, come, no, bedtime and lay down.
What makes Rain anxious? Strangers, loud noises, doors, cars, lots of stuff.
Rain’s ideal home will be calm and quiet with adopters who are either retired or who work from home. She is her happiest when she never has to leave your side.
