Please give a warm welcome to Lulu! She is a 4 year old Yorkie Poodle mix who was surrendered to the shelter with her litter of puppies after her owners became homeless. She’s just over 7 pounds of precious love! Lulu watched over her puppies and nurtured them during their most vulnerable times and now it’s her turn to be nurtured and doted on. She loves gentle affection and while she’s a little shy of men when first meeting them, she does warm up quickly.
This sweet girl would love a home where she’s the center of attention, she gets nervous when meeting new dogs and will snap at them if they crowd her or sniff her. Once she’s over introductions she seems to co-exist fine, but if placed in a home with other dogs, they need to be submissive. Lulu is perfectly content sleeping next to you or finding a place of her own to rest, she’s not a dog who has to be in your face all the time.
We’re working on perfecting her house training and crate training while she’s in foster care. She does great for car rides and likes to look out the window at what’s going on. She hasn’t shown any interest in cats yet and does well with calm, respectful children. A home with toddlers will not be considered. She was well behaved for her grooming and is very treat motivated.
Lulu wasn’t provided routine veterinary care with her previous owners and is unfortunately heartworm positive. She’s been started on the slow kill method and will go home with heartworm meds to complete the year of treatment.
If you would like to meet this sweet girl please go to www.texassweetiesdogrescue.org to read our adoption requirements. If you agree with the requirements please fill out an adoption application. If your application is approved one of our volunteers will be in touch with you for a meet & greet.
Lulu’s adoption fee is $200 which includes shots, spay, microchip and heartworm medication.
Sorry, no out of state adoptions.
