From the Foster:
Lassie is a lovely and quiet dog and has been through a lot in her 2 years. She is fully recovered from her eye surgery that she had in both eyes. When she came to us she was very scared of everything, even the slightest noise and wanted to be by herself I think due to her eyes hurting and she was in heat so she was a little depressed. Once she had her surgery and began to recover we met the real Lassie who loves all dogs, loves to run and play with other dogs and loves to get her belly rubbed. I don't think she had ever been on a walk prior to coming to us and was very stubborn about not wanting to go on them. We have been working with her on her leash and she is doing wonderfully now. She still gets really excited at the sight of a rabbit, but other than that she loves her walks and makes this e-wok sound when you grab the leashes to go for a walk.
She loves all dogs and loves running at the dog park. She has shown no signs of aggression and has only barked twice in the time we have had her. She loves stretching out on the couch for long naps and chewing on marrow bones and peanut butter balls. She likes to take her time eating and always leaves 1 little kibble in the bottom of her bowl. She is fully potty trained and we had her in a kennel her first 2 nights, and she did fine, but she doesn't need a crate, she has never had an accident or done anything other than sleep or chew on her bones while we have been out of the house. She would do best in a house without children as she is still scared of loud noises and shy.
She didn't respond to Latrice Royale, so we started calling her Lassie and she responds to it. She does need some additional training (coming when she is called/basics) as well as a canine companion. She does OK on her own, but you can tell a positive change in her behavior when another dog is around. She also howls a very soft, sad howl when a police/fire/ambulance siren goes by. As hairy as she is, she doesn't shed hardly at all and she loves a bath and falls asleep in the tub. If this lovely girl picks you, you are in for the prize of a lifetime. A little training, patience and love and you will have a perfect dog on your hands. We have loved having her as our foster but now that she is recovered from her surgeries she is ready for her forever home.
