Marci, terrier mix
Marci is a female terrier puppy being cared for at Cause For Paws of NC.
Marci has already had all of her shots.
Notes from Marci's caretakers:
Marci is learning basic commands and is doing great with crate- training and house-training. She is treat-motivated and eager to please. She is very timid until she gets comfortable with you, then she is all tail wags and kisses. Due to her timid nature, Marci's socialization skills are a work in progress. Marci is looking for a home that will spoil her with love and toys! She is good with other dogs that are introduced calmly; she gets overwhelmed easily if they are very dominant and in her face.
