Douglas is a very lovable small girl who is beginning to learn that some things in the world are actually safe and enjoyable. Especially nice people.

Douglas and her sister came to a shelter after being rescued from a hoarding situation, she was initially very scared and shy. Now in foster, she is still fearful but is getting more comfortable everyday. She's decided that it's safe and quite pleasant to let her foster mom pet her.

This well-behaved girl is making progress in becoming more confident about her surroundings. She likes the company of another pup. She's getting along well with her foster's dogs.

She is a house-trained girl and she does well when her foster is away from home, staying in her room.

Douglas will love a home with pet parents who can spend a lot of time helping her continue becoming more secure and optimistic. Doggie housemates close to her size can be helpful. Children may be a bit too active, so she may do best just with grownups or older kids. She's an adorable girl who will love a safe, quiet home and petting parents.
