The true princess!

Hi guys! I am Princess Mia, and I am a 3 year old, 30 lb female spayed Pointer mix. I was rescued as a street dog in TJ, with my jaw really hurt after being hit by a car. My fractured jaw is healing well now. I am missing quite a few teeth and need soft wet food. I would rather stay off ruff play and tug or hard chews for quite a bit. While getting better at my foster home, I have been working on my good girl manners too. I have progressed a lot with bathroom training and working on leash walking. I do lunge at other dogs when I see them on the walks, but it’s out of pure excitement and the urge to say hi! But with positive reinforcement and my smartness, I will get better!

I am a sweet, playful lil thing and have really come out of my shell as I am healing. I am a curious gal, and a total social butterfly, which makes everyone fall in love with me and my gummy grin! I love my doggie pals and can play all day long. I do get boundary reactivity and I am working on ignoring passers-by and not barking. I am quite a good jogger too, thanks to all the energy I have, but I am quite good at settling down when Mama is busy. I get pretty happy to train with treats, but when I am done, I signal with my cute ‘woo-woo-woos’. I do have a prey drive, so cats are a no-no! But I am good with kiddos!

I would thrive in an active household with a large yard and a dog buddy. Kids older than toddlers would be better for my clumsy and rumbunctious energy. Due to my high prey drive, I’d do best in a home without small animals. I definitely need company while I learn to deal with my separation anxiety. I’ll need someone willing to continue training on my leash reactivity and separation anxiety, please. My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
