Misty is a typical one year old, who is quick to learn new things (fetch, sit, drinking out of the toilet) and actually seems to enjoy learning new things. She’s smart too- she will nonchalantly mosey toward the back fence whenever I get ready to throw the ball, so she can beat everyone else to it, and if they start to close in, she will just leap over them. She loves to play tug with her foster sister but does not challenge humans, which is great. She can be a little bit of a brat, stealing toys from other dogs and then just dropping them once she takes possession.
Misty is housebroken, rides well in the car and is pretty good about settling down and snuggling. She is very quiet in her crate and even likes to take her meals in there. She has chased, and barked at, cats; we don’t think there was any malice, but that she wanted to play, but most cats might not appreciate her overtures. Misty will have a training addendum because she does have the energy of a young dog and will push the limits.
