Hi my name is Arielle and I am a very loving and adorable three year old girl! I have the cutest big ears that stick straight up with I get excited! I weigh about 38 pounds and am a nice medium size! I am excitable when my people come home but calm down quickly and am content to chew on a bone or lay at my foster mom's feet. I am not destructive if I am left free in the house but I hate to be boxed in. I would be ecstatic to have human siblings to play with but would also be okay in an adult only home! I would like a family that will be able to spend lots of time with me since I have some separation anxiety and who will give me some freedom in the house. I do not need to be crated and am a much happier and better dog when I am given freedom. With that said, I do pretty well in a metal crate (except during storms) but I really hate the plastic "airplane" crates so please do not put me in one! I love to play fetch and to go on walks! I also like to curl up next to my people and get belly rubs. I am a nice mix of energy and calm and the most important thing to me is that I have people that love me.
I am a very obedient girl and can go outside without a leash or a fence to potty. I use my foster mom's front yard. I enjoy being out there as long as she is with me but if she goes inside I want to go with her. My foster mom is so impressed by me because one night a deer came into the front yard while I was off leash. It got REALLY close to us but she told me to Stay and I listened! She told me I am such a good girl! I love when she tells me that :).
My best furry friend at my foster mom's house is a big headed pit bull named Romulus! We run around in the back yard and bask in the sun together! Of the two of us I am definitely the dominant one. I would like to go to a home with a submissive male dog or where I can be the only dog. I also love to play with my foster mom's 8 year old niece and 10 year old nephew! They are so fun and they give me lots of attention!
When I was rescued I tested positive for heartworms but have since been treated! I will be re-tested in about 4 months to make sure the treatment worked! All expenses related to my heartworm treatment have and will be paid for by FCHS (if I were to come back positive which is very uncommon). I am spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped and on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. I can't wait to find a home to call my own! Could you be my future family?
