When she bonds with a human, big or small, she starts to play and snuggle and even be a silly girl. At first she can be a little nervous but reassurance and treats go a long way. She’s a big chewer so she needs toys designed for a busy girl. Becky walks well on a gentle leader.
Becky gets along with most other dogs well in different settings, but she will compete for human attention or toys so a strong leader is important, or just the right dog friend that doesn’t mind sharing. Our foster families feed the dogs separately but we recommend doing that with Becky permanently as she really likes her food and does not want to share with other dogs or cats. Becky has done well as an "only" with the opportunity to be left out of her crate because she can be anxious in a crate or kennel.
She was living in foster with cats and at first she was doing well, but then became too interested and began to chase them so feline friends are not in the cards for Becky. She loves riding in the car but can get a little nervous and over-excited. She rides best in a crate and with repeated positive experiences this is slowly getting better. Becky likes to be outdoors and is a fun hiking companion. She can jump a 4 foot fence with no problem so if she has a fence at home it will need to be much taller.
Becky is looking for a forever home where she can relax and have a great time. She would love to soak up the attention as an "only child" and once she bonds with you, she will reward you with unconditional love.
Mike at White Mountain College for Pets tells us, "Becky is a sweet girl with a gentle soul, but there are a few traits that might be a problem for some. If you're up for tackling them, she'll be a great companion. Becky is VERY high energy and powerful. She can jump straight up over 6 feet and will do so multiple times. If there's a wall to bounce off during the jump, she'll take pleasure in that.
Her energy and power make it critical that you're at full attention when walking her. We have her walking nicely on a loose leash, but the occasional new smell or critter catches her attention and it's easy to get pulled off balance, even with a corrective collar. She ignores dogs, shows moderate interest in cats, and is rather crazy about chickens, birds and small critters. All that said, if you've got an active lifestyle and the time to work with her on some drive sports... nosework, flyball, weight pull, etc., she will make a loving companion."

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
