Introducing Tulip, your new furry friend with a quirky and loveable personality. Once known as Bunny, she has transformed from a fearful soul into a lovable companion eagerly awaiting her forever home.
Tulip’s day starts with a heartwarming routine – she shares morning cuddles with her foster mom after her potty break, cozying up until the day officially begins. Her heart is as big as her desire to be a lap dog, showering affection with gentle kisses. She communicates her desires with an adorable “Wo-wooooo” sound, a unique touch that adds to her charm. She will sing with you too! Also endearing is her cute shorter-than-usual tail covered in feathered fur (thus the name Bunny).
Tulip’s journey brought her to SCGRR due to her initial hesitancy around strangers. However, with the support of her foster family and one of SCGRR’s training partners, she’s made incredible strides. She’s learning to trust through gradual introductions and the chance to familiarize herself with new scents. She prefers to meet on her terms and not be pressured. During walks, she’s learning to sit next to her foster mom when encountering strangers. Every day, we see more newfound confidence in this amazing girl.
In her home environment, Tulip strikes a balance between medium energy and a need for engaging activities. An active partner and a bit of obedience and walking training will make her shine even brighter. She’s the perfect motivation for an active lifestyle. The great outdoors beckon to her – whether it’s a leisurely walk or an exhilarating hike, she’s ready to explore. She has boundless enthusiasm for the pool, swimming endless laps all by herself.

Tulip’s playful spirit is infectious and she will make you laugh. She finds joy in life’s simple pleasures, like chasing water bubbles, leaves, or her cherished pinecone. While she adores spirited play, she thrives in a serene environment. She is choosy about her canine friends but very playful with those she likes. Squeaky toys and lively tug-of-war matches are her favorites.
My Ideal Home
Tulip’s ideal home would be 1 or 2 adults (NO kids) in a quiet household who want a sweet Golden mix to love. She needs a calm home and space to learn trust. Tulip is a fairly active young dog so she needs someone who is home a lot and loves to go on long walks/hikes. She is learning how to walk on a leash without getting distracted by everything, so an adopter will need to continue that work, along with working on slow introductions to people she doesn’t know. She can be a puller on leash but a gentle leader has helped. She would LOVE a pool or access to water. If there is a canine sibling, they should be very balanced and social.
