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 dogs, and good with cats.
Laura is confident and independent in some things and nervous in others. She loves to follow me upstairs and even into the attic and basement. She just seems to really appreciate having so much room to move about in. When she dashes across the yard at full speed, I just have to laugh! Yet when I bring out the harness and leash for a walk, she tucks tail and tries to hide. We are working on building her confidence in this area. She would be happier in a forever home with a yard secured with a fence. Once she gets out on the road for her walk, she does great. She has even gotten used to the occasional car passing by. However, if we run across a neighbor who acknowledges her, the tail tucks under again. She just needs time and patience to help her meet new people including children and dogs while on the walk. She does love tummy rubs and attention.
Laura is normally very quiet. But she gets so excited when she hears me wake up in the morning that she does cry for me to hurry most mornings. She does a little happy dance as I let her out of the crate and we head for outside. She loves to run and play out in the yard and readily takes care of "business" in the grass too. To be honest, if it is raining, she might use the deck instead of the yard. Not so much fun to be outside when it rains. Anytime I call to get her in the house, she comes running. Especially if it is meal time. Having her whole life drastically change didn't bother her appetite any. She has sturdy constitution.
Laura seems to have taken it upon herself to help me mulch up all the leaves. She loves to chew and rip them up. Of course doing it one at a time doesn’t help me very much. Sticks are pretty fun too. Hard rubber toys, rope toys, and antlers are all pretty nifty. She has only had hard toys that could be sanitized until she came here. Laura has tried to chew a forbidden object or two, but responded by never doing it again once corrected. She is ready to please, just tell her how. Laura has learned "sit" and is working on "come-sit". Being food motivated helps her learn new things quickly.
