Egyptian style bellydance.
Baladi was found as a stray by a member of the public. Her oh-so-sweet and gentle personality landed her a spot in our program and we know she won’t be here long!
Baladi is Heart Worm Positive and is currently receiving treatment. Otherwise, she is healthy and can be adopted – even before she finishes treatment if her new family can commit to scheduled vet visits and keeping her calm. (MPR will continue to pay for her medical care if she is adopted before her treatment is completed).
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
This gorgeous girl has a blue coat with a cute little patch of white on her chest and black. She has a small frame and is well-proportioned.
Baladi is living in a foster home with two adults and a small male dachshund. The dogs were very slowly introduced and only have interactions that are supervised. They’re quite the funny looking pair 😊 Baladi is flexible in her living situation. Like any dog she’d love a yard, but it’s not a need. She is taken on walks every day and kept in her kennel while foster mom is away.
A big sweetheart! She is a very gentle pup with a loving personality. Baladi is quite the cuddle bug. She enjoys being able to lay on her person, but she’s not a total couch potato. She likes to play fetch and is so cute with her toys – she brings her soft ones to bed with her and is never destructive with them. Again – she’s so gentle! She also likes to bury her treats in her blankets to save for later.
Behavior with people:
It’s all tail wags from Baladi when meeting new people! She is outgoing and friendly with everyone she meets without being over the top.
Behavior with children:
Unknown, but we think Baladi would enjoy a home with respectful children due to her super relaxed nature. Foster mom confirms she has no food or toy aggression.
Behavior with other dogs:
Baladi could live with a compatible dog after a slow and proper introduction. She shows a little bit of interest in dogs on walks and will try to go in their direction, however she doesn’t bark, and she is easy to redirect.
Behavior with other animals:
Low prey drive for sweet Baladi. She has an interest in cats but has a very submissive personality. On walks she doesn’t seem to have any interest in squirrels or rabbits.
Baladi is working on basic training with her foster mom. Baladi is responsive and very eager to please She is housebroken and crate trained – could she be any more perfect?! She is a loose leash walker and very easy to redirect if there are any distractions. Foster mom says she also does well in the car, staying in the dog hammock in the back and oftentimes lays down during car rides. During the day Baladi is kept in a kennel and does well. At night she is loose in the house and sleeps in her mom’s bed. Check out her album on Facebook (linked at the top of this page) for some adorable pics of this little angel in bed.
Baladi loves to cuddle and she’s a pro at it! She uses her cuddles to express her love and it shows. She would be so happy to help keep her person warm as it gets colder outside!
