Ladybug loves getting attention from her human friends and she will accept any kind of petting, scratches, kisses, hugs and cuddles from them. She may just prefer to cuddle on the couch with them and get her muzzle rubbed from her nose to her eyes. She's such a very affectionate girl!

When you visit Ladybug in her foster home, she may take a while to warm up to you. She's a bit protective and defensive of her home. But once she gets acquainted, she will love you.

She is an energetic girl who loves going on walks and playing fetch. When playing fetch with a rope, she drops it at her foster's feet and will chase it over and over again. She's also beginning to work on her obedience skills, starting with sit and stay, and she's mostly house-trained. She free roams the house when her foster is away and does pretty well.

Ladybug will love a home with active parents who can take her on walks and runs. She'll also get along well with parents who are away at work much of the day since she free roams nicely. She will also do well with someone who lives alone; she's alert and protective and will let you know if someone is at the door. She will enjoy being the only pup but may get along with a well-matched dog buddy.

Come meet this beautiful girl. She'll sniff you and want to follow you home!
Come meet your new best friend
