Arwen is 14 weeks old (approx. DOB 12-22-20), female, 12 lbs., initial vetting done, microchipped, not spayed (must be by Adopter). She is a puppy that will require everything a baby puppy needs (frequent potty breaks, potty training, basic training, socialization, and lots of love). We do not know what breed she is or who her parents are. An Adopter can have a DNA test done if preferred but we do not do DNA tests.**

BEST IDEAL HOME IN YOUR OPINION? The ideal home for Arwen will be people with experience with puppies who will work with her on training and have experience with some separation anxiety. They will either be active people or have an outdoor space where Arwen can get her energy out. Arwen is very social, friendly, and cuddly, so it would be great if there was another dog in the house to be her friend and teach her the ropes of how to be a dog.
