When you see Thumper, the first thing you will notice is her gorgeous markings! We have listed her as a Bassett mix, but she very well may have some Catahoula dog genes running through her veins. Her gorgeous brown coat is mottled with darker brown to create a stunning contrast. She’s 2 years old and about 25 pounds, which makes her a fairly small companion animal. But Thumper is no couch potato. She’s a high energy girl who loves to hike and run! She would make an excellent companion for an outdoorsy person. She came to us with gaps in her house training and crate training, but foster mom has been working tirelessly with her and she’s coming around very nicely. She is a puller on leash, but we are pretty confident that she will learn to walk nicely once she is more accustomed to the concept. Thumper loves other dogs and she has done well with children. She does well with cats, although she may chase a cat that’s not overly dog savvy. She has done no harm to the cats in her foster home. She has a good understanding of basic commands: C’mon/leave it (to keep moving on walks), sit, No, Down (needs a little work), and Come. She’s not a big fan of her crate, and she will cry for a while, which isn’t unusual. Foster mom does report that Thumper is not destructive in the house at all, and she happily gives her the kitchen area to relax in while no one is home. Thumper is very interactive, meaning that she will bark in play and nip in play. Foster mom is working on this, and she’s sure that Thumper will come around with a little patience, and perhaps a companion canine to help her use up some of her friendly, playful energy. Foster mom says that Thumper is very affectionate, eager to please, puppy like, and well behaved. All in all, Thumper is a high energy girl with lots of love to give and an adventurous spirit!
