This girl just came into care she’s about 7 or 8 years old. She needs to be spayed and to have a dental and then she’ll be ready to go so it’s going Middle to end of April.

Mandy is the sweetest pup who LOVES her person! If you are looking for a cuddle bug, look no further! She has integrated well into our home for the past 5 weeks, getting along well with our wee Chihuahua. She is not super playful with other dogs (at least not yet) but is instead indifferent to them. She is happiest cuddled up beside you on the couch while watching tv or sitting on your lap at the computer.
Although she is hearing impaired and not able to hear most sounds except vibrations, this does not hold her back in any way. She understands hand signals quite well and “listens” when asked to do something via hand signal. She loves to go for walks and sniffs everything, but she can be reactive to seeing people, bikes and other dogs. Some training in this area may be helpful. Usually a light pull on the leash is all that is required to redirect her. She can definitely never be let off leash in an open area since she has no recall, but a fenced yard or other safe spot where she can’t get too far is great. She loves sniffing and exploring in our backyard.
She is content to sleep in her crate at night in our bedroom but would also love to sleep in the bed with you if you let her! She sleeps well throughout the night and is excited to see you every morning. She is completely house trained as long as you let her out consistently for bathroom breaks. She loves to be brushed and is fine with getting her paws wiped when she comes in from outside. She is non-shedding and will require to be groomed.
If you are looking for a sweet fluffball who loves belly rubs, Mandy may just be the girl for you!

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
