From Kisses' AAT foster mum:
Kisses prefers to be with her people. Her favorite overnight spot? Right next to a compliant human, preferably under the covers on cold winter nights. She is always ready for a brisk walk, on-lead. We have tried working her "free lead" time, but her chase instinct is too intense - feral cats, other dogs on lead or loose, people, and especially squirrels are all viable targets for her to chase. So we must insist on "leash only" when outside and not contained by proper fences. Kisses loves car rides and most people. It's all in the approach - that's something she has taught us. We tell approaching humans - let her come to you. That's when she's ready to make a new friend. She gets along with other dogs - larger and smaller. But if she feels threatened - get ready. This little 17 pound girl will stand her ground - which can get her into a sticky situation. We know she would enjoy the company of other dogs, so proper canine introductions will be key. No cats...sorry.
Kisses is no longer a fan of crates, but will "kennel up" if you insist. We decided to allow her open space in our den when she was returned to AAT in July of 2014. She doesn't damage the furniture and can "hold it" for about 7 hours at a time. She doesn't challenge home gates that are over 30" tall, but can easily jump a 24" gate. She has been fully vetted, spayed and is on monthly heartworm preventative. Kisses is a sweet, gentle, playful dog who is ready to be the center of your life. Her proper spot.
