Perla is a two year old female Bichon mix.
She came into our program in horrible condition, dirty and matted beyond recognition. Our groomer had to shave Perla down so right now, she looks, well, sort of blah. On the other hand, our groomer did a great job because despite the numerous, thick mats that were so close to the skin, she did not once shave too closely and that is saying a lot.
Here is a before photo:And here is an after photo: Pretty amazing!
Perla is a sweet dog. So far, she appear to be timid and a little scared but that is not surprising since she was seized from a bad situation. She is a sweet dog, house trained and does well in her crate. She has a crate in our dining room and in her crate is one of those doggy beds that fits the entire crate and we covered up her crate on the top and three sides with a sheet. She loves her crate.
Perla does well with dogs and cats. I would suspect she would be fine with older children. The younger children might move too quickly for her.
Perla walks well on a leash and enjoys doggy walks. She does not like being out too long, in the rain or in the cold.
Perla will need to be groomed on a regular schedule. I thought she was a poodle mix, the groomer says Bichon, either way. lots of grooming in her future.
