8/8/23 Available Soon!! My name is Pawlina and I am here to tell you that I behave like a youngster! I was picked up as a stray and the shelter guessed my age at 10 years, but my vet in Arlington says I might be as young as 7. Okay, I have some gray hairs on my muzzle (who doesn’t?), but my teeth are in good shape and I have a pretty good energy level – I bounce up and down on my hind legs like I’m hopping on a pogo stick whenever I see a squirrel run up a tree!
I really like it when people pay attention to me and, in return, I will protect them from anything I perceive to be a danger. I also like to bark a lot in the car – I just think it’s a really fun thing to do. I walk okay on a leash and I enjoy meeting new people and some of the other dogs in the neighborhood – if their owners have snacks, I will tolerate the dogs.
I am smart and eager to please. I had some bad habits when I first came into rescue (like lunging and barking at cars) but I learned to stop doing these things after a few corrections. I am also working on impulse control and sitting quietly while foster mom puts on my leash and opens the door for a walk. Some other good qualities – I am protective of my home turf, I liked to be brushed and I am a good eater with no known allergies.
Unfortunately, I am heartworm positive. I have finished my doxy pills and later in August I will have my first topical treatment. I am asymptomatic (no coughing) and my heart and lungs look good on the X-ray, so paws crossed that I will soon have a clean bill of health!
