Luna is great with other dogs, including small dogs, and loves to play. She presently lives in a home w/ an 8-yo female Tibetan Spaniel (about the size of a Pomeranian), and she's very good w/ the her. Luna would likely do best in a home with another relatively young, playful dog to help her burn off some of her puppy-like energy and make it less likely she'll develop boredom-related behaviors such as digging or chewing.
Luna has not been around cats at all, but given her sweet temperament, I will consider a home w/ a dog-savvy cat and a playful dog (so Luna won't just focus on the cat).
Luna is housetrained and non-destructive inside, but her owners have always kept her in a crate when they are gone if they leave her inside. Luna also sleeps in a crate w/ the door closed. She is kept outside for 8-10 hrs during work days and does not bark excessively or dig.
Luna has not received any formal obedience training, but she does respond to the commands "sit, down, shake and house." Luna walks easy on leash and stays fairly close to her handler. She does get excited when she sees other dogs while walking, but she has learned to sit and ignore other dogs on command.
Luna loves to carry around stuffed animals and likes sprinklers, though she has never been swimming.
Luna's owners have had her since she was 8-wks old, but are moving into the 2nd floor of a duplex at which Luna won't have a yard. Not wanting to leave Luna crated for over eight hours each day, they have decided to seek a new home for her.
GSRSV has evaluated Luna and is and is placing her as a "Program Dog." This means that GSRSV is placing Luna through its adoption program while her owners continue to care for her.
Luna is located in Antioch. Her adoption fee is $260.
