From the Foster: Flora is an amazing and loving soul. She is one of the sweetest dogs ever! She is so caring and patient with her eleven pups, myself, and my four year old son. She loves pets and kisses and is learning to shake with both front paws (so far only when she wants to!) She is house broken. She seems to do better with free reign vs. closed up in a kennel or a room, but she does very well left out!
She wants to please and is overall a very loving dog. She absolutely loves getting attention, and she loves playing with toys and is most often carrying them around in her mouth. She loves tennis balls and plays great fetch! She does well with bones and treats and tolerates walks on the leash just fine. She doesn't pull, she is just happy for the attention. She is a beautiful dog inside and out, and takes treats so gently she barely touches you or the treat. This girl does have some manners. She loves people, she will usually always want to jump up to give you kisses, but knows what "no" is and will happily get down. She loves to just be close to someone at all times, but chills well by herself too.
She will prefer to be an only dog, she has had successful interactions with dogs but it takes the right dog friend and a lot of slow intros and time. She will be aggressive with new dogs and does require someone able to manage this. She is an easily managed dog and does listen if you tell her to stop, focus, leave it, etc.
Please apply to meet this girl, I don't think you'd regret it for a second!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
