Paula is on the small, STOCKY side weighing about 35.5 Lbs. and measuring about 14.5 inches at the shoulder. She is really gentle. I try to play with her and get her riled up and she will not bite me even if I put my hand in her mouth. She will lay on her back and slap your hands with her paws while wiggling all around.
She is happiest laying on the sofa next to you. I think she would be OK with any age kids but you would have to be a little careful with very small children. She really likes to be with people.
Paula is not good at holding her business. She has a schedule once in the morning, once at 3pm, and once late at night. While I always work from home she checks to make sure I'm there about every 15 minutes. You might find a toy with the inside ripped out on occasion. On a Saturday morning we can sleep in and she has no problem sleeping in as well. She likes sleeping on her bed in our room.
Paula needs to have a physically fenced in yard to safely run around in. She walks very well on a leash but likes, and with her extra weight needs, to run around as well. Paula has an overwhelming urge to hunt. She is great when she is loose and you have her attention, but if she sees a squirrel, cat, rabbits, etc. She will go after it with gusto. She will not listen to anything you say – she is gone. In a fenced yard it is not a problem as she has nowhere to go but out loose I think she would RUN FOREVER. Due to Paula’s high prey drive, she can NOT go to a home with cats.
Paula is a little cuddly teddy bear with a lot of love to give and to get. She loves to give out kisses and just loves her scratches and pets. She would let you pet her forever if she had it her way. Paula loves her people and would love to have someone home with her and who wants to spend lots of time with her. She would even like to have another Britt in the home to keep her company as she enjoys the company of the resident Brittanys.
Paula was rescued from Serbia, she was found in a cemetery pregnant full of fleas and ticks, and was so sick that a transfusion was necessary and she lost her puppies. The wonderful people in Serbia helped her get healthy enough for her to travel. Once Paula arrived with her foster she then had to be treated for heartworm but we are happy to say she is now heartworm free and she is now living the good life.
If you are interested in Paula, then please fill out the adoption application. Paula is up to date on her shots, spayed and microchipped, as well as on heartworm preventative.
