Meet Mona...her middle name is Sparky...need we say more? Ok, maybe a little.
Mona is a super great girl who heightens the energy levels wherever she goes. She's a playful, mischievous, toy-loving gal. She loves play group where she can lead playtime for the other pups with lots of running, tugging and rough-and-tumble antics. After a meet-and-greet to be sure play styles mesh, she would love moving into a home with other dogs so she'll have doggie play time all the time! She has not been observed with cats or kids.
Mona is a bit stressed with all the noise around her in her kennel but on a recent extended sleepover with a volunteer, she was reported to be nervous in new situations, friendly and easy to care for-not at all what you see in the shelter! You'll find her carrying a toy in her mouth that she is learning to drop on command. Her leash walking skills are improving every day and she's quite the pro at sit! She's going to learn a lot once you bring her home and spend time teaching her all she wants to know about life in a forever home.
Is your lifestyle one with lots of activity and time for long walks/runs and exercise for the new canine friend you are looking to bring home? Do you maybe have another dog or two for a home playgroup? If so, come meet Mona. She is anxiously looking forward to moving into her forever home where the toys, balls, and human(s) will be hers forever.
