Sweet lil’ Lemon is an adorable 3 month old Shepherd Mix puppy who was admitted into foster care due to kennel cough. After almost 3 weeks in the loving care of a foster home, she was nursed back to health and is now ready for adoption!
Here’s what Lemon’s foster mom had to say about this incredible pup!
She loves carrots and frozen banana pieces. She wants to meet every dog she sees, although most of them had no interest in being pawed by a goofy puppy. Most dogs would just turn away from her and ignore her; one dog gave her a warning growl, which she heeded immediately and stopped acting the fool. So she does pick up on signals from other dogs if they are stern enough.
The only thing that she demonstrated any skittishness around was a street cleaning vehicle; otherwise she accepted new things with curiosity and interest, and recovered very quickly from being startled by things she had never seen before. It took about a half day to get her to go up and down stairs without a problem, but the promise of kibble made her forget all about being scared of them.
I love this dog. If I knew for sure she would be under 40 lbs fully grown, I would keep her. She learns quickly, is pretty mellow for a three month old puppy, is affectionate but not slavish, is great to sleep with, and is just so sweet and happy and interesting that anyone who adopts her is going to be very lucky to have her.
