    Hello world, I’m Ritza!! I’m a cuddly young girl looking for a family to love

    You may be looking for a dog to love but Ritza is looking for you! Nothing makes this girl happier than cuddling up to her humans. Bed, couch, floor…you name it and she’s there to snuggle with you.

    Ritza is also still a puppy and as such she needs more than binge watching Netflix (although she’s certainly up for that) She will need an active home that will walk her, play with her and teach her all the good things puppies need to know. She loves to learn, is eager to please and is very food motivated (a total bonus for training!!)She has already learned sit, down, wait, is working on shake a paw and is about 90%++ house trained (she knows to go to the door to go outside but does not vocalize).

    Ritza has a very gentle spirit (yes she still has crazy puppy moments…but overall has a very sweet demeanour) and can be a little shy/timid of strangers and dogs she doesn’t know. She warms up quickly when she realizes people give her cuddles and dogs like to play. She absolutely LOVES playing with our resident dog and took to her immediately. Puppy/obedience classes would be excellent to continue to build confidence in this area.

    When Ritza came to us she was suffering from a skin infection which has since been treated. It has left her with a few patches of hair loss on the sides of her cheeks and a little on her legs. Her fur is starting to grow back but this can take time and it is unknown if she will fully regrow all of her fur in those areas.

    It has been a pleasure to watch this girl blossom into the sweetheart she is!

    Come out and meet this wonderful girl! You couldn’t ask for a more loving pup!
