If you can’t wait for the new Barbie movie, check our new BARBIE out! She’s a two year old puppy, who is sweet, loving and aims to please. Barbie is an exuberant young girl with lots of energy and excitement about the world around her. She loves people and can’t wait to meet and greet everyone she comes across on her daily walks.
Barbie came to GRRMF from a shelters who knew when they met this sweet girl that GRRMF would find her a loving, forever home. Diagnosed with heart worm, Barbie will need to go through a series of treatments that will require her to have low activity exercise for a four month period. That won’t be an easy task for a young girl who wants to do all “puppy things” like run, jump and play. Little does she know that her foster family has plans for her to learn some obedience commands and manners while she is being treated for heart worm. Barbie will also get to enjoy some of her favorite things – belly rubs, car rides, walks and playing with her assortment of toys.
While Barbie was staying at a foster families home for a week, she was introduced separately to their three dogs and Driftwood, a 20 year old cat (a veteran of foster and adopted dogs). Barbie did very well with the dogs and respected Driftwood’s stationery and calm approach towards her. However, bunnies, squirrels and lizards are another story -it’s the thrill of the chase when she spots one of them!
Barbie is housebroken and crate trained, in fact, she loves to sleep in her crate. A Velcro dog that loves her people, she is an enthusiastic pup who is a willing learner. Since she is a lively and energetic pup, she may be better with older children than small infants. With additional training, patience and love, Barbie will make some family a wonderful companion for life.
Your support and generous donations towards Barbie’s heart worm treatment will give her the new and happy life she deserves. This sweet and loving girl is dreaming of a forever family and she can’t wait to be well to start living her best life!
