Greta came to us from Waterbury Dog Pound in October, 2016.
Her foster family has done some great things with Greta :) She was a butterball when she first came to us - now she is slimmed down to a healthy weight. They have worked hard with her to reinforce basics. She does well walking on a leash and knows her commands.
Greta is a slightly older lady - about 8 years old - a Jack Russell / chihuahua mix - who ideally needs a quiet home. A lot of activity in the home makes her nervous.
She is not a big fan of being crated, but will deal with going into the crate and having the door closed as long as there's a treat involved - and once in there, she is fine. She also isn't all that enthusiastic about living with other dogs and will do best as an only dog. She is, however, just fine with cats!
Greta will do best in an adult home, with a family who can give her lots of attention and snuggles. She would be a terrific family member for a retired person or couple, or a single adult with a quiet life style.
