This Chocolate and Tan Cocker mix was found as a stray with a litter of 3 puppies; the shelter kept the puppies and she was sent to RMCR. She must go to a home where the family will be patient while she learns you won't harm her and has other dogs. Lil Mama needs the security and the feeling of belonging that other dogs provide.
She has made great strides since arriving - she is very comfortable in her current foster home and will occasionally snuggle or jump up for some one-one-one attention with her foster dad. She is very fearful of visitors, but will slowly relax while keeping one eye on the visitors.
When leashed, the slightest tug will cause her to lay down, so she will need a home with a yard. On some occasions, her foster dad carries her into the house because does not want to re-enter the house, a bit fearful of it. Lil' Moma will do best with one or more other dogs in her new home; she is comfortable as part of the pack, but not alpha.
She is very fond of one of her foster brothers - mouthing him as a sign of affection. Another foster brother is an alpha and she likes to chase him while showing herding tendencies. This sweet dog has never shown any sort of aggression, even when frightened.
Other than being TIMID, she is a very happy dog who is still learning the ropes in being around humans.
