"Gretel is a gorgeous little girl who just turned a year old in August. She is about 50ish lbs, spayed, Gretel, 13 months old, 50ish lbs
Gretel has so many wonderful things going for her! She is very smart, playful (but not hyper), protective, loyal, loving, and so affectionate. She is the type who will follow you around and want to cuddle closely next to your lap and in your bed at night. She is already spayed, microchipped, dewormed, and up-to-date on all vaccines. She is housebroken and has been through PetsMart Puppy and Intermediate Classes and knows basic commands like sit, stay, paw, and down. She does OK walking on a leash and is getting better everyday. She is outstanding about only chewing her toys and bones and not the furniture!
Gretel loves to play with the submissive dog she currently lives with but she is dog selective though so would need to be tested and properly introduced to any dog she may live with. She currently lives with cats but needs to be monitored with them because she does like to chase them for play. She has no experience living with children.
Gretel needs a special someone to help her work through her kinks. She likes to guard her food so needs to be separated from other animals when she eats, or be closely supervised (she currently eats in a cage). She gets nervous around new people and situations and can come across as reactive. Once she feels comfortable she is very affectionate but she needs a strong handler to help her through these anxious times. She can also be reactive on a leash when she sees other dogs so needs more leash training but is making great progress. She is a major homebody and really needs a fenced yard where she can get her daily exercise since she only likes short walks.
Adoption Fee is $65 and we will deliver Gretel to her new home after a meet and greet in a neutral location. Adopter is required to sign an adoption contract. Gretel really needs to find her special someone with a structured home who can help her blossom into a balanced dog. This gorgeous girl is very well worth the effort!!
