AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS WORKING WITH OUR TRAINER IN HIS HOME, DIVA IS READY TO GO OUT INTO THE WORLD AND GIVE LIFE AS AN ADOPTIVE DOG OR FOSTER DOG A CHANCE ... HER TRAINER WILL CONTINUE WORKING WITH HER DURING HER TRANSITION AS SHE SETTLES IN WITH A NEW FAMILY. DIVA WILL REQUIRE A SPECIAL HOME WILLING TO STICK WITH HER THROUGH SETBACKS AS SHE CONTINUES TO WORK ON TRUST ISSUES WITH PEOPLE.
Diva is a 6 year old, 8 pound Yorkie/Maltese cross (a "Morkie") who came into the Manhattan Shelter as a stray with significant handling issues. She shows signs of having been badly abused over a prolonged period. When Diva first came to us, she had no trust in human beings at all. Underneath it all, we know that she is simply a very scared dog who has been battered by life as well as evil people. After several weeks working with a trainer, we have begun to inspire her trust. Diva has been spayed, microchipped, is up-to-date on all shots, and has tested negative for heartworm. She has recently been treated to a dental cleaning and will go home with a new leash and collar. While she has enjoyed very little pampering in life, Diva is now ready to live up to her name.
