I need some good advice please!
We are on the waiting list for a doodle puppy but came across one that actually needs a new home. It's just a family who doesn't have enough time for their dog, Bella. She's 7 months old. We visited her last night and learned that she is a little shy. She didn't come right up to us at first, but warmed up at the end. We played outside with her a little and she wasn't interested in us, but just wanted to run around. She had energy to burn!
She is mostly housebroken (yay) but won't poop outside! She poops on potty pads inside. This would NOT be what we wanted, so how hard will it be to break this habit?
We're really torn... I think she'd be a good dog, and we wouldn't have a lot of the hard puppy stuff, but she comes with the poop issue and would have to get used to us. I wonder how long that would take??
