Prada is a very sweet & cute 7 yr old 80# Rotty girl.
Prada tries to please her human, and came to her foster impressively knowing, several commands. Someone clearly put some significant training time into Prada as she knows sit, paw and down(lay down),the latter which can be difficult to teach a dominant Rotty to comply with. She walks pretty well on leash, tho can be stubborn when she doesn't want to go where you want.
Prada does very well in her crate at night although would do best in a home where she isn't crated for extended periods. As a youngster, she was crated all the time during her puppy developmental years, resulting in a slight termor in her back legs. This does not affect her movement or functionality. She easily leaps onto the back seat of a high SUV, regardless of this.
Prada is exuberant and just thrilled to run around freely in a nice, grassy (fenced in) yard or SO happy to ride in a car with her muzzle sniffing out a crack in the window a bit on a nice day. She is a total doggy clown and it's comical to watch her joyfully run around a yard with any old improvised toy or ride in a car with her muzzle sniffing everything excitedly as she happily drives around with you!
Prada's former life didn't include much introduction to new people, therefore she needs guidance on how to behave with them. She has a very sweet nature, and truly wants to please, so I expect with mindfulness of this deficit and with proper introduction & reinforcement, this should not be an issue. Prada can be very protective of her human(s). She would do best in a home with minimal "traffic" and older/no kids. She should not live with cats.
Prada is in a foster in Maine with another dog, chickens and larger livestock that she is playful with. Prada is now free from her past over-crated life, and this cute Rotty girl just wants to have FUN(!), with whoever or whatever will play with her! $250 adoption fee.
