found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Bunny got her name for the reason she had a hard time keeping all 4 paws on the ground. Now she still bounces around without a care in the world. With her playful attitude her name will stick with her for a while.
I received her as a foster directly from the pound where she was a stray. We are still trying to figure out why she wasn't claimed because I can’t imagine anyone not wanting her. Since being here I have discovered she does have a bit of apprehension towards taller, bigger men. Not knowing her history I do believe a man has done some bad things to her. She does get better being around them and will just take time. We find that if the man crouches down to her level and offers her treats she is a friend in no time.
Bunny would do great in a home that can provide the time she requires, being she is very fit and active and will most likely stay that way. As well, she would do best with someone that knows the breed and how to handle them. She would do great with a house and a big yard for her to play in. She loves to be outside with you or without, the snow is her best play toy! Bunny has great leash manners and with a little work will be amazing.
Even though Bunny is a bigger puppy she does not know this when it comes to couch time. She loves to sit on your lap or at least have her big noggin resting in it. She loves her belly rubs, in fact her favourite sleeping position is in tummy rub position. Bunny just wants to be with you and please you, even though I am still working on some of her manners. She loves all ages of kids, face washing babies is great fun for her. Bunny is completely housebroken with no accidents in the house even with a new puppy around. She is completely crate trained and will even go in and sleep in it on her own. I do crate her when I am out of the house and at night for her own safety as she is still a pup.
Bunny loves other dogs and cats. She is still learning she is a big puppy and doesn't quite yet know how rough she gets with the other animals. She will chase the cats but once they stop she just licks them and will play with my big male, if he lets her. I have a new puppy (12 weeks) and I do have to crate her to give the puppy a break as she just doesn't stop wanting to play and tease her. She just doesn't know she is 50 pounds bigger and will sit on her and play a little too rough. I think she would be great in a home with another dog the same size or larger that can tolerate her and keep her in line. She has been fine with my boarder dogs, no aggression at all.
I have lots of family that brings all ages of kids around. She would be best in a home with kids over the age of 12 due to the fact she does jump up. Bunny loves babies but wanted to snuggle with my cousins 1 year old a little too much lol. Kids that would hug her and love her and play with her would be the best!
Bunny does know how to sit and with a little coaxing she will lay down, however, ends up on her back for a tummy rub. Her leash manners are great but she does pull a little when she sees another dog or person as she wants to visit. She does still jump up when excited, but is getting much better and will stop the older she gets and with continued training. Because she is a stronger breed she will need continuous training so she does not develop bad habits. I feel she would be a great agility dog or one that is given a job to do to keep her busy. She is very smart and picks things up easily.
So far during her stay with me I have been working with her shyness of certain men. Usually after the man gets down to her level and they just move slowly she warms up. She is not fearful of all men, just some and I believe that these men remind her of someone in her past who was not kind to her. Cookies usually tend to help with the situation. It will be something that her new owners will need to take the time to work with her and understand this fear will not go away overnight. Continued socialization and a good obedience school will help her gain confidence and show her that she can be brave with all strangers. She would be best in a home with a family that has experience with large dogs and will take the time to work with her and get her out meeting a lot of people and experiencing new things.
In the right family Bunny will thrive and we hope to see her in her forever home soon! If you are looking for a family pet that will love all the members unconditionally she would be a great addition.
