- Adoption status
- Approx August 2016
Her name says it all. This is a gal who wants her own human sooooooo badly. “Cakes” as we like to call her, is one of our “swampies” from our rural location of Assumption Parish. She craves human attention and all she wants to do is please her people. She is so well-behaved and will curl up on the couch with you but bring out a toy or ball, she will play a hardcore game of fetch in a split second! And don’t let her middle aged years full you….she will go from a couch potato and into a ball of water dog fury as soon as she sees that toy/ball. SWEETCAKES LOVES THE WATER!
But in keeping transparent, we did adopt her out via our TV show and she got returned within hours. Apparently, she nipped at the adopter’s mother and when I say we were SHOCKED….it completely caught us off guard. This dog has been around soooooo many people and loved them all. She can have some anxiety when put into a new situation and the only thing we can think of is that the adopters in their excitement had too many people over to greet Sweetcakes when she arrived and she became overwhelmed. Since having her back with us, we have put her in all sorts of situations and she has passed with flying colors.
She is actually in our Underdogs Prison Dogs Program right now and has been doing amazing! Not only does she now have lots of great training on her but she has made some doggie friends as well. Before going to prison, she was nervous around dogs. So she has made great strides.
The perfect home for Sweetcakes would be a somewhat quiet home. She likes calm and structure. She can have a dog friend but she can be selective and a slow introduction is what it will take. I mean look at her here, running around with fellow prison buddy Inferno! He’s a wild child and she ended up loving him!
And because Sweetcakes can be just a tiny bit shy when meeting new people, if there are to be kids in the home, older ones would be best.
Never have we had a dog that has wanted a home so badly. She looks up to every human she meets and you can see the hope in her eyes that just maybe…this is her new “hooman” Will that be you?
