found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Bree doesn’t have a lot of toy play right now, we think it was her littermate that played with toys, and Bree then herded her sister. We are working on the toy play, she’s starting to figure out that she is not going to get into trouble when she interacts with toys. She will on occasion whine while in her crate, but this is only when the other dogs are let outside, or when her foster mom leaves the house. She definitely does NOT have separation anxiety, she just wants to join in the fun! She’s already had a trip to the groomer, and did well. We are working on loose leash walking, it’s a work in progress right now, but coming along.
Bree is close to 20 lbs overweight. She’s on a diet and exercise plan, the weight will easily come off. Even with her extra weight she runs with the 5 dogs in the pack 2x a day, for 45 minutes at a time. She should be able to do whatever it is her person wants her to do, be it go for a run, dog sports, whatever! She is currently attending a Life Skills/Foundation Agility class and is doing great at focusing on her person instead of all the other distractions going on around her.
The only real issue Bree has is….she has a hard time controlling herself when someone is paying attention to her. You pet her and she turns from an intelligent thinking dog to a licking machine, “I love you I love you I love you lick lick lick lick”. She doesn’t jump up a lot, but the licking is pretty ingrained. She has obviously learned that a “no” or “leave it” means…..I’m in trouble, so I better lick even more. We are working on this issue many times throughout the day, she’s learning that she can be told she is a good girl, get a quick pat on the head, without her turning into a kissing fool! She’s come very far in a short amount of time with regards to self control. BREE NEEDS A 6 FT. PRIVACY FENCE
If you are looking for a sweet, confident, good natured dog that is completely house trained, gets along great with dogs, cats and people, has the energy to do whatever is asked, but will also gladly lay at your feet, then Bree is the dog for you. Her new owner will have to continue to be diligent about her diet and exercise, and reinforcing Bree for making the correct choices with regards to self control will need to be worked on for some time to come.
