This week we’d like to feature Doja—she’s a PUPPY! Doja - Oregon Humane Society She’s 4 months old, 25 pounds (and still growing) and is a boxer/pit bull mix. She’d fallen out of a car window and badly injured her hind leg to the point it needed to be amputated. She was brought to an emergency vet hospital in Eugene where she was abandoned, ended up at an animal shelter in Eugene and then transferred to OHS for medical treatment. As you can see in her video, she gets along on three legs just fine! And you can see in her video how smart she is- she already has ‘sit’ and ‘high five’ down!
The one thing about Doja is….well, she’s a little bit of a hellcat! She’s very much a puppy and is an extremely mouthy puppy, though she’s starting to get a bit better about that. She loves going for walks, playing in the grass, and playing with toys. Doja isn’t for the first-time dog owner. She’s a lot of puppy and needs someone with dog experience and familiarity with canine body language. Doja is looking for a calm, low-traffic home without small children, and she’ll need to go to a home with another dog with a similar level of energy for her to play with- and will need to meet that dog first, before going home. Doja has been getting training at the shelter and will benefit from continuing that training when she goes home. Puppy socialization and behavior training classes will be important to continue with sweet Doja puppy.
Do you think Doja might be the right kind of puppy for you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of her profile and come on in to meet her!
