FOSTER PARENT COMMENTS: Presley loves to cuddle with her family. She will jump into a lap whenever given a chance:-) She has never met a stranger or a biscuit that she didn't like. She likes to keep her people within paw's reach and likes to stay close when relaxing.
She lives with two foster sisters – one dog is a little bigger than Presley, and the other is a little smaller. After a fairly short introduction period, they are the best of friends. She MIGHT be ok around cats, after an introduction period. She has had only a limited exposure.
Presley relaxes comfortably in her crate if we need to be away for an extended timeframe.
She eats in her crate, and follows a routine: crate up, sit, shake, wait, (put food bowl down), (pause), OK – eat! (we don’t close the door to the crate – that is just her eating location)
She is energetic, and loves to run! -- but she is wary of thunder and lightning – and we think she might be afraid of the dark.
Presley loves tomatoes – and would be delighted to have her ‘own’ tomato plant!
Presley is really smart, and knows many obedience commands. She walks well on a leash (in appropriate surrounds without close distractions). She loves to take brisk walks to burn off some energy. She knows sit, stay, wait, leave it, finish, touch, focus, shake – and many more.
Mostly, Presley has great house manners – she does like to cuddle on the couch!
She has been around a lot of different people, including children. While she is excited when initially greeting new people, she quickly settles down. We have never seen her have a problem when people “mess with” her feet, tail, ears, etc.
Presley will be great with someone who will love her all the time and be her leader. She is not a good choice for an unleashed dog park, or an environment where she will be around dogs she doesn’t know. Presley would love to find a forever family that would be willing to continue her training so that she can reach her full potential.
EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: BFPA received a heart wrenching plea about a heavily pregnant dog who had been taken into a rural high kill shelter, only to give birth on the cold concrete floor the following day. Thankfully, a wonderful foster family opened their hearts to her and her 7 newborn puppies. Presley raised her puppies (they've all been adopted) and she is now waiting for her own forever family. Will this be your family??
Some of the information contained in this biography includes approximations based on our expertise and is not guaranteed. We do home visits to finalize adoptions and/or deliver the adopted dog. Therefore, we prefer potential adopters live a reasonable distance to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.
