Meet Raquel!

Did someone say, “Cheese? Because Raquel’s answer will always be, “Yes, please!

In addition to having a favorite snack, Raquel is using her taste buds to transition from a stray pup to an exceptionally well-behaved homebody. In a short amount of time, she has mastered sit, down, paw, and is making process on, ‘wait.’ Crate is also a word she knows and quickly responds and curls up inside hers. It helps that she is a super smart four-year-old. Of course, there’s cheese, so she’s eager to please.

Raquel plays well with other dogs, and sometimes has too much fun for a girl who usually at a medium activity level. Playing tug with her toys brings her joy, and while she likes playing with a ball, fetching it is not her vibe. She gentle on her plush, and cuddly with people she knows and trusts. Gentle introductions are important for Raquel so she can be certain of the people who will love and care for her. When she is comfortable with her people, she is kind to everyone from men to small children.

She’s going to need calming care when she goes through treatment for heartworms, but she can lounge on the couch like a master. Raquel will flourish in a calm house where she isn’t overwhelmed with too many new faces. She likes the faces she knows, and her expressions will remind you of how much you mean to her. Even an occasional, “no, will bring out her adorable personality. Her submissive puppy eyes soften her a sweet face and her singing voice will let you know she wants to play and spend time with you.
