About Me:   Curious cuddly companion - these are the three best words that describe me! Now that I have your attention…Hi, my name is Waverly! I'm in search of a forever home that is going to be just right for me.

When I came into HART, I had worms and was very skinny. Now that I'm well nourished (I eat duck like a queen!), I have a tendency to get a little too excited sometimes. So, I have starting taking a pill and it keeps my calm. I also try to avoid being in stressful situations because it makes it hard for me to remember what my foster mom wants me to do.
I love to make friends! I get along with mostly everyone, including my foster mom, other dogs, and even cats! But I need some time to warm up to kids and to men. I didn't meet a lot of them when I was growing up, so it just takes me a little longer to get used to them. I know that I could be a best buddy to the right 'dad'.
I'm hoping to go into a home where I can have another dog like myself to play and where there space for me to go outside and play!

Behavior Notes:   Waverly was extremely fearful of men. She was at the point of running and hiding with her bowels and bladder evacuating when a man came into sight. Waverly has made amazing progress since then! With a consistent behavior modification plan, help from a trainer and medication for her high anxiety, she is now enjoying the company of her foster dad and seeks pets from other men as well. Because we want Waverly to stay on the right track, the behavior modification plan will be following her into her new home. She needs an adopter who can continue to carry on with the plan set in place for her. Waverly is great with other dogs and has followed the lead of the resident dog in her foster home to help her with her rehabilitation.  Waverly will require an extended adoption process to ensure a good fit.

Health Notes:   Shy little Waverly was underweight and wormy when she came into hart's care. While in care she developed a rash that was monitored but went away and Waverly also visited one of our vet partners to ensure that everything was in tip-top shape with her front legs. She bows her left front leg out, but the vet found no issues with it. Waverly is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.
