Adoptable Doxie Mix Heidi

Adoptable Mix Heidi

Adoptable Doxie Mix Heidi is a sweet girl once she warms up to you. As a matter of fact, she can be so sweet, her foster parents call her “Puddin”. For some reason, she is more comfortable and seems to enjoy the company of women rather than men.

With some people, she is initially defensive and barks but with others, she snuggles and licks their faces! It’s important to read her cues and to be aware of which category YOU (or your future guests) fit into.

She’s easygoing in that she doesn’t bark excessively and is completely housebroken. She even refused to defile her kennel at the shelter where she came from. Heidi is a well-behaved girl who fully cooperates when she needs to go into her crate. She enjoys going out and coming back in for a treat. Heidi wags her tail at other dogs and is a known cat chaser!

There are no signs of anxiety, and Heidi isn’t timid, but only needs time to adjust to some new people, especially men, as mentioned. Many dogs coming out of a shelter and past trauma need additional time, love, and patience to become confident in new surroundings and enjoy a stable way of life.


Heidi is very responsive to her name and gladly runs to you when she is called. Although her front legs are unique, she has no problem going wherever she wants to go. Her sweet disposition and the fact that she never lets her front paw deformity slow her down are a couple of her best traits. Heidi, a.k.a. Puddin’s loyal personality makes her a perfect choice for a forever companion!

If you believe you could provide a safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs’ name on it.

*Be advised, we have a couple of volunteers processing hundreds of applications. We are unable to call everyone back as we do not have ANY employees. Our dedicated volunteers and foster parents will check references of the applications that appear to be a good match. At that time, if you are chosen, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
