From the Foster:
Jynx is an absolute sweetheart who loves people! Her house manners and training are phenomenal! She stays off of the furniture (though she’d love for you to invite her up to cuddle) and never touches anything that isn’t hers. She’s also an angel in her kennel. She’s smart, motivated and loves to learn (especially for treats!) - since she’s been with us she’s added 7 tricks to her repertoire and is learning more all the time. She’s very responsive and eager to please.
A yard for her would be great as she loves to go outside and it would be nice for her to have open space to run and play. An apartment would be doable as long as the person is dedicated to exercising her mentally and physically. (Which is needed in either case, but might be easier/ more convenient with the yard). She will relax if you are relaxing and she's had other activity, but she's not a couch potato. She's smart, and will be happiest with someone who will work with her in ways that keep her mentally stimulated. She's very treat motivated and eager to please, you definitely get out the work you put in to her, and then some!
She does need to be an only pet. She does not get along with cats or dogs, and will try to chase rabbits and squirrels. Though she’s improved greatly with squirrels. She needs someone who will continue training her so she can walk comfortably past other dogs, especially because she really loves her walks. Walking comfortably past other dogs should eventually be possible, but she should not be placed in areas of interaction with other dogs.
