Twinkle in New Albany, IN


Here is the pup with her new family…

Pleased to introduce the one and only Twinkle!

When Twinkle first came to foster care, she was very skittish, leery of hands touching her. Her much older foster Cavalier brother helped her gain confidence. She is sweet, lovable and your constant companion.


Twinkle is 2 years old, born 8/29/19 but she has the maturity of a much older dog. Since coming to her foster home she has visited a veterinarian who has given her vaccinations, had a teeth cleaning (no teeth removed) and been spayed. She is free fed dry Acana Poultry food. 

Twinkle is very reliably house trained and will use potty pads during bad weather and go outside to a fenced yard during good weather. Her foster mom has taught her to use steps to sit on couch and bed as she desires. She prefers to sleep near foster mom and her Cavalier brother. She is learning to play with toys but prefers to be near her foster mom. Twinkle loves to be gently rubbed on her neck and head. 

Twinkle was introduced to leash walking and does quite well, although startles when loud, young children are around. She is comforted by caregiver picking her up and showing that she is safe.

The ideal home for Twinkle would be a calm home with someone around most of the time. She does have separation anxiety and will bark excessively when left alone and needs additional training and support if to be left alone.
