Twiggy is a happy, playful puppy. She is always excited to meet new people, children, other dogs and cats, and will lick you like crazy if you'll let her. She likes to chew on bones and sticks and play tug of war. She loves to chase squirrels and lizards. She is a fast runner and once caught a squirrel in her foster's back yard! She only got the squirrel's tail, but she was very proud of herself. She is smart and a quick learner! Twiggy enjoys training time and is learning to sit, look at me, leave it, drop it, stay; and play fetch. She keeps herself busy outside for a while, but also loves to lay at your feet and take a nap. She barks when someone comes to the door, she sees someone on a bike or motorcycle or when she is not allowed to meet a new dog while on a walk. She walks well on a leash, but sometimes she's not in the mood for a walk. She is not crate trained and currently sleeps on a bed with her favorite children (ages 7 and 9). Twiggy is less than a year old and weighs about 14 pounds and is almost there on the house training. Twiggy's perfect home is one where she would have considerate children and another dog to play with and a family that will allow her to be part of their daily activities. A cat would be fine if the cat would tolerate her playfulness. Please come to Petco on Saturday to meet Twiggy!
