Caprice ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Caprice Caprice is about 2 years old, very smart and very sweet. A little cautious with strangers, she warms up eventually...no kisses during her first week with me but now I get them all the time. And, she is eager to see me when I get home...then she goes directly to the kitchen in hopes of getting a treat. Caprice wants to be at my side whenever she can...as do my other dogs, and everyone is getting along beautifully...she’s even coaxing my boys to play and chase her.

She is a bit of an escape artist, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound so there’s no keeping her behind a babygate or fences. She needs a very secure home...perhaps a condo or apartment. She learned quickly where her bed is, and I know I can find her there if she’s not at my side. She hoards toys into her pen and gives them a good shake from time to time. She’s an active little girl who needs toys and chew things to keep her occupied. She sleeps quietly in a crate in the bedroom each night. Grooming is no problem...she enjoys being bathed, brushed and even allows hairs on her face to be trimmed without a fuss. She just loves whatever attention she gets. Caprice
Caprice Currently sporting a "lion cut"...the hair on her back half is very short presumably from her spay surgery. We expect it will grow back. She has a natural, undocked tail and drop ears. She was recently spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, just had her teeth cleaned and she has a microchip. And, she is housebroken.

Caprice needs a stay-at-home owner as she will go looking for companionship (or trouble) if left alone...she just wants to be with her person. A home with a playmate (another Silky?) would be ideal.

The adoption fee for Caprice is $300.

Caprice's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to take proper care of her. Preference will be given to applicants within the surrounding area. Please note that we do not ship our rescues.
