Foster mom reports that this 7 year old, 60 pound girl can be left loose for the workday and she will greet you with that kind of “oh-my-goodness-I have-never-been-happier-to-see-anyone” greeting that has to bring a smile, no matter what kind of disaster happened on the job. She’s glad to remind you with some comical hops and jumps to leave that somewhere else and enjoy being home. And you won’t have to clean up anything because she will have behaved like an adult all day out of her crate, which is more than you can say about some of those supposed adults you work with. She walks well and loves walks, on or off leash.
She does not like other dogs all up in her face and will let them know. Foster mom calls her “sassy.” Nor are cats among her favorite things. We think she would do best as an only dog with some people who have been waiting for a dog to dote on. She loves her family and likes to be where they are. She’s an appreciative kind of dog. She would also be best around adults who understand the manners of Dog Culture as opposed to those barbarian hordes (most children) who think it is fine to just walk up to a dog and throw their arms around the dog’s neck. She would like a calm, quiet kind of home. She will head to a hiding spot during thunderstorms, but she won’t come unglued.

Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process. NOTE TO EMAILERS FROM ADOPT-A-PET: WE DO NOT RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES WITHOUT AN APPLICATION. WE REGRET WE CANNOT RESPOND TO EVERY EMAIL, BUT UNLESS YOU FILL OUT AN APPLICATION, WE DO NOT KNOW YOU EXIST. All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
