I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Who knows how Basenji mix Laika came to be living in Terry Hershey Park? Whatever happened, it made her untrusting of humans. It took Laika’s foster mom three days, two packs of hot dogs, and lots of dog food before Laika trusted her enough to get close. Laika was skinny and scared at first, but has become friendly in her new environment. After receiving love and care, Laika is prepared to meet you and find a place in your heart!
Tell me about Laika: After some initial cautiousness, shyness and timidity, Laika becomes friendly, eager to please, and enthusiastic. She is intelligent and trainable. Laika likes other dogs, going for walks, her crate, adults, sometimes strangers and strange place, and also car rides. Laika is not fond of loud noises and thunder and lightning. Laika has not met children yet. Laika loves other dogs and is very sweet, following her foster around.
Education: Laika’s abilities are undergoing assessment as she lives with her foster mom, so stay tuned for updates. At this time, Laika is not used to a collar and leash, but is working on it. She does bark and howl some, but that does not mean she always will. Laika is a runaway risk, so she should be on a leash or in a very secure outdoor space if not on a leash. Laika has not displayed any bad habits.
Laika’s homeless experiences caused her to be afraid of almost everything--until she gets used to it. In the stable and loving environment you will provide, Laika will blossom, as she is a friendly little dog who really needs you. You will appreciate this affectionate and intelligent dog we call Laika!
