Our timid little mimosa
Girl • 1 year old • Aries • Golden Yellow • 9kg • Mixed Breed
Mandy arrived at Pack Sanctuary from the Xindian animal shelter this October. Despite being bar ely a year old, she has already been adopted once. Her previous owner was impatient, and gave h er up because she wasn’t fully potty trained. He returned her to the shelter after just three days. Even though it was bad luck that Mandy got an unreliable first owner, the record made finding h er a second home difficult. The evaluators at Pack Sanctuary believe that Mandy’s miniature si ze and friendly nature makes her a diamond in the rough, and with the proper training, she can b ecome an obedient and wonderful pet. Mandy is doing her best to accimilate herself with life in t he city, and we hope that she can find a loving home as soon as possible.
Mandy is normally very active, but she gets nervous around strangers and seeks comfort from fami liar humans or other dogs. She loves frolicking, and is both curious and wary around new things; t hough she accepts almost anything once she knows it’s safe. Mandy also loves playing with othe r dogs, and can get a bit too excited. New environments are something she finds harder to deal wit h, and can take some time to get used to.
Lively and peppy. Inquisitive and cautious.
Mandy can be hesitant around unfamiliar things, but she easily accepts it once she familiarizes her self with it, though it will take time.
Mandy gets nervous easily, but can be calmed by hugs, baths, and a manicure.
Getting used to new things will take time, especially sounds, which can frighten Mandy and make her want to hide.
Foster Family Says
Even though she is still easily spooked and will hide in the corner when frightened, she is getting bolder. She is especially eager when going on walks, and you can loosen the leash after a while. St aying close to the pedestrian walk can also help soothe her. However, she forgets most things the n ext time, and will need to be taught again. She play-bows whenever you take out your phone to tak e a picture of her, and it’s super adorable!
