Tonks is about 3 years old. She is a mixed breed girl of unknown origins. We feel like there is some greyhound and perhaps some German shorthaired pointer (or similar breed) in her genes. She is a fantastic combination of energetic and calm. Tonks loves to run and would love a fenced yard where she can do so safely. She would also do great as a running buddy--she would just need a little practice. She walks well on leash and is used to a gentle leader system. When she isn't up for exercise she is a great companion in the home. She is well-behaved and loves to be with her people.
Tonks can be a little shy with new people at first, but once she is comfortable she is a doll. She is very gentle and sweet. Tonks loves to play with other dogs, but also needs slow introductions just like with people. She currently lives with cats and loves them as much as dogs. We recommend older kids for Tonks. She is never ever aggressive, but her tail is like a whip and can bruise a tough adult. We think she might accidentally hurt a young child if she got really excited and really started wagging.
Tonks is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. She was recently treated for Lyme disease which was discovered before she was symptomatic. Tonks is also solidly housebroken. She is trustworthy uncrated and prefers to lay next to her crate rather than inside it.
