A social butterfly? Sometimes. Unsure of some strangers? Yep, sometimes. But in Cagney’s heart, she wants to rush up to everyone and say: “Hi, have you met ME?!” We’re helping her every day with her anxiety and reactivity and we plan to bring out the best in her. Alert, happy, and vocal, she also likes playing with some dogs, but not all dogs. She prefers a submissive dog companion. But she’s not a fan of cats!
Cagney is smart and eager to please and has learned many commands easily and quickly—and she’s highly food-motivated to learn more. A busy bee of a dog, she LOVES the great outdoors and is energetic and agile and active. Regular exercise will make this girl a truly happy dog. In fact, a farm or a nice patch of land would be part of her dream home. (But she'll also become a Zen dog if you give her a nice, slow back massage.)
Cagney came to us from East Nashville--and a leash is a brand new concept in her world. We’re working on her leash-walking skills and she makes progress every day. She is a Smooth Coated Collie/German Shepherd mix, about 55 pounds, and is 2-3 years old. Can you ADOPT this lovable busy bee?
