Barbara Manatee was found as a stray running around very sick. She was taken to the vet where she was diagnosed with parvovirus. She stayed at the vet for a while and has beat parvo and now is in a temporary foster home thriving. She was named after the veggie tales song that she is obsesssed with and is rumored to sing along with.
Barbara Manatee loves to be held like a baby and to be snuggled with. She is learning to play with toys and likes to carry the rope around. She wants all of the cuddles all of the time! Barbara is getting along great with all of the dogs in her foster home. She knows sit and they are working on other basic commands with her. She is learning that the crate is not a bad place. It is common for parvo pups to be nervous of the crate and/or the vet until they get some positive experiences to replace the bad. She is working on potty training and is doing pretty good.
