Caprice ~ in Southern California
Looking for a Home
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.|
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.
