Description: 
Visit www.petprojectrescue.com to learn more about our animals! Paula is a special dog and needs a special home. She is fearful of new people so she needs to be in a home with someone who is both dog savvy and a strong leader, so that she feels safe and secure in her environment. Paula is currently in one-on-one training with a professional dog trainer and is making great progress. She will need to continue with training in her foster or adoptive home. We are also able to help with training during the adjustment period when Paula is in a new home. Paula does very well with other playful dogs and is fine with cats.. Paula is also housebroken and crate trained. She is about a year and a half old, and about 33 lbs, and is a mixed breed. We think she is a Whippet/Border Collie mix, but because she is from Isla Mujeres, Mexico we can only guess according to the breeds found on the island. She loves attention and to cuddle with her people, once she knows them and is comfortable. She loves having a big comfy dog bed and dog bones to enjoy, and a fence to run around in. Paula is a sensitive and shy dog, and needs time to get used to new people and new environments as mentioned above. Because she is shy we feel that it is best that she be in a home without children.If you feel you have the dog experience needed to care for this special girl pleas apply to either foster or adopt on our site. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, given de-wormer and a fecal test, Heartworm tested, Frontlined, and given HeartGuard monthly before adopted out. If you are interest in applying to adopt Paula please complete an application by visiting www.petprojectrescue.com. We require that you live within 60 miles of the Twin Cities to adopt a PPR dog or cat.
