Additional info: Tabitha loves to give kisses and play with her toys. She's a tail-chaser and has lots of energy to burn. She'd make a great jogging partner. Tabitha was an owner surrender to the shelter because her family moved away and didn't take her with them. She was kept indoors and was not socialized very much, so she can be nervous around new people. She is not aggressive but she will run from fear so needs a secure environment.She growled and bared her teeth the first few times we handled her, trying to trim nails and examine her etc., and she exhibited some resource guarding over treats. She can also be a little mouthy. Because of this we do not recommend her for a home with kids and she will need an experienced foster. She has warmed up and is now much more settled but she can still be overwhelmed meeting new people and we think she is more afraid of men than women. She is missing her top back molar and premolars so she may have had dental extractions in the past. When she is not stressed she is sweet and loving and eager to explore. She is crate trained and housetrained. She is learning to walk on leash but at the moment she is pulling. Again, an experienced foster or forever person can help her with all of these issues. She is willing and eager to learn.
