Mamba was named in honor of a basketball legend the world lost on the day we rescued her. She was surrendered to us by an owner who realized he couldn't give her what she needs. At just under a year old, Mamba hadn't been around another dog since she was a baby, and wasn't well socialized with people, either. Though we realized Mamba would require lots of effort and a bit of time before she would be ready for adoption, we eagerly committed to her. And she hasn't let us down! After some time to decompress in her new home, Mamba had her first social with respectful dogs who allowed her to set the pace. She initiated play within moments and, after a third session, you'd never know she was terrified of these dogs just days ago. Mamba loves to run and play with her furry foster siblings, big and small. She's discovering the joys of squeakie toys and she loves a rousing game of fetch. She loves napping on the couch with the other pups, and hasn't quite figured out why they chew on those horns that deer wear. She is silly and eager to please. She is house and crate trained in her foster home. At this point, Mamba is still slow to warm up. But, as of today (2/5/2020), she's only been with us for 10 days! And she's come around in a huge way in that short time, learning to trust six dogs that terrified her just days ago. We'll continue to socialize her with balanced dogs and lots of people, and she'll continue to make progress. Mamba could absolutely be placed into a home that understands she'll take about 24 hours, 2 walks and 2 meals to love you, and perhaps a few days to trust your dogs, and that has the patience to give her that time. Mamba is a fun loving, bouncy, spunky, playful, goofy, affectionate and smart young girl. Update 2/8/20 Mamba is totally comfortable in her foster home, cuddles with her foster humans and plays with her foster dog siblings! She is silly and playful and very eager to please her humans. She also attended her first adoption event and did so well! She relaxed and mingled with the dogs and volunteers calmly. We are so proud of her! If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application.
