Cricket is a 6 year old female Collie/Golden Retriever mix, around 35 lbs.
Cricket is a dog with special needs and needs the right person.
She's a very shy girl and must have a calm, quiet home with very little activity.
She pretty much keeps to herself in her foster home but will come up to you occasionally to be petted or to interact with the other dogs.
A home with 1-2 adults would be best and preferably with someone a little older and more settled in their lives, late 40's and up. No young adults or first time dog owners please. Cricket would do best having another dog in the home, who she can continue to learn from. She does not like leash walks. She feels most comfortable going out to a fenced yard to potty and to stay in the comfort of her home where she feels safe and knows her routine. She's not a dog who likes going places, that makes her nervous. She comes out of her shell once she feels safe in her home.
She gets nervous around young kids, with their loud and sudden movements so a home without young children is best. She needs an owner who's patient and understands it will take her a while to adjust.
Her new owner must keep her as safe as possible. If she were to ever get loose outside, she would not go up to strangers on her own and could not be able to be caught.
Having a fenced yard is a must...a tall fence privacy fence is required, which she has in her foster home and has shown to be the right type of fence and one where she has been kept safe inside.
Cricket is spayed, current on shots and also microchipped.
