One of the most adorable puppies on the planet needs a new home

Recommended Posts

It turns out that I've got a bit of a bleeding heart when it comes to small, cute things, so I took in a puppy about a month or so ago and now it's time to find her a new home!  (I travel and move around a bit too much for her to be particularly happy living with me and I won't be able to give her all the attention she deserves so I'd love to find someone who wants a companion dog.)

She's the cutest Bishon I've ever seen (and my best friend back home has 5 of them), and she's a treasure to be around.  I named her Wesley but, since she's only 3 months old and I've only had her for a few weeks, she doesn't respond to the name yet so you're welcome to rename her if you'd like!  She can be playful if you get her going, but for the most part, she is a very calm puppy and she's completely content to lie down near you and nap or sit in your lap for quite a while; she will make a really wonderful companion dog.  She absolutely loves being pet and held, in addition to enjoying belly rubs.

My flatmates and I have been training her while she's been with us and she's almost completely crate-trained.  She hates being in the crate during the day and will whine when she knows there are people in the apartment (puppies will totally chill in their crate all day but not if you force them to.)  Other than that she's very well-behaved for a puppy and rarely chews or bites on anything other than the toys/food items you give her when she's not locked in the crate.  She also responds quickly when you tell her not to chew or bite something (I tell her 'no' in a firm voice and either take away what she's messing with or move her.)

Wes sleeps through the night (in a crate) without problems now, this being from 1-2am to usually about 9-10am, at which point she will wake you up (by making a ton of noise) because she needs to go to the bathroom if you haven't taken her out yet.  She knows the 'sit' command fairly well, has picked up on "come here," and she's also making progress on 'stay.'  (If you adopt her, I can show you the hand signs we use.)  In the last week or two, we also began leash-training which isn't going too badly and Wes has learned pretty quickly, although, since she's still a puppy and, thus, has a short attention span, she likes to try to run off any time something catches her attention.

House/Potty-training hasn't been too difficult as long as you keep her on a regular feeding/walk schedule.  She still has accidents inside if she isn't taken out every 3ish hours but we're using a bell system by the front door to train her to let us know when she needs to use the restroom outside.  (You can take the bells-on-a-string with you too, if you want.)

I have taken Wes to the Angel Animal Hospital and she has been examined, treated, and given a clean bill of health!  I have also started her vaccinations and the animal hospital has her file with everything recorded so if you'd like to take her elsewhere, you can stop by and get a copy of her records.

Whomever adopts Wes will be able to take whatever dog food and treats I have for her.  Wes also has a collar, leash, and a carrier you will be able to take with you as well.  (The crate I am currently using does not belong to me so you will only be getting her carrier.)  I imagine you will also be taking her one or two toys with you as I will have no need for them!

There will be a 700 RMB re-homing fee (that I may be willing to negotiate on) as I really want Wes to go to a loving home and to (hopefully) not be re-sold.

I'm sorry that this turned into a novel but if you still have any questions, please don't hesitate to message me and ask!  I'd love to find her a new home as soon as possible to prevent any possible separation anxiety problems.

Wes is still up for adoption if anyone's interested. We can set up a time for you to meet Wes if you're seriously considering adopting and would like to see her first!
