Micki

Gender: Female
Breed: Poodle
Secondary Breed: Mix
Status: Adoptable
GETTING A NEW LEASE ON LIFE:  3 years old / 10 lbs.
 
Hi!  My name is Micki!  When my former family moved to a house where I wasn’t allowed indoors, I spent a good bit of time crated outside or in a garage.  So when I arrived at Mostly Mutts, they thought I may have some neurological concerns, but fortunately it turns out that – since I was not in a good situation, I had become anxious and developed some boredom issues from being in a crate way too many hours daily (walking in circles).  Now that I am with MM’s in a great foster home, I’ve been cleaned up, had my matts shaved and am on anxiety medicine that we think will help the circling decrease.  A better life awaits me, and I could not be more grateful!
 
• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:  I’d be happiest as an only dog as I’m not a big fan of other dogs, but I’ll tolerate them as long as they don’t try to play with me or invade my space.  Otherwise I’ll show my teeth and snap at the air to scare them away / Cats unknown / I haven’t met kids yet at Mostly Mutts or in my foster home, so perhaps calm and gentle kids 10+ could work, but let’s meet and best no young kids.   
 
• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  Given my past, I will likely be a little slow to trust, but … once I do, I am as lovey-dovey as can be!  I’ve latched onto my foster mom and I give her hugs and lots of kisses.  I may not show well at adoptions since it’s loud and there are so many people there.  I’ll want my family to go slow with me and if you start by slowly rubbing me from my head down to my tail, my tenseness seems to diminish a bit.  Then, we are on our way to being friends!  So, bring your patience and love and I think we’ll get along well / Energy level: Currently 3-4 but may increase once I’m all settled in my new home.
 
• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:  I sometimes know the ‘sit’ command, but I’m not really treat motivated, so I’m not really motivated to do tricks / My foster doesn’t crate me since it’s clear that I’ve been in a crate way too much in my life / My potty manners are getting a bit better and a fenced yard will be best for my learning.  I like to either follow you out or be carried outside to do my business and then I’m ready to come in right away.  I’m also using pee pads in my foster home and I tinkle on them at night, but have missed the mark with my #2’s.  Please know that I still need some work in this area and be ready for that and be patient.
 
• LIKES/DISLIKES:  I love being held and cradled, following my favorite person around and I like gentle and calm spirited people.  I also like some doggie toys that I sometimes play with on my bed / I’m afraid of fast movements and gets scared very easily.  Unfamiliar situations are also frightening, so please go slow with me, as my new home is sure to be a new experience for me. 
 
• MEDICAL:  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed.
 
I am looking for a loving and patient family who will give me the time I need to know I am safe, loved, and in my wonderful, furever home!  My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
