Additional info:

Crackers is a gorgeous girl that adores her person! She bonds quickly and is eager to please. She is high energy and is still working on some basic training and impulse control, but she is learning quickly with lots of consistency and positive reinforcement. She understands "sit' and "wait" and is currently working on some issues with playing too rough with her mouth. She loves playing with other dogs that match her energy and size, that are not reactive. She is house trained and crate trained. Crackers does need some work on leash as she gets so excited to go on walks that she pulls ahead pretty hard, but she is receptive to using a gentle leader or easy walk harness. She has a big bark and can be intimidating to some people, but if introduced properly she will quickly show how happy she is to meet a new friend. Even though she is pretty active once she gets enough exercise and/or playtime, she is ready for a nice long snooze. Crackers loves getting night time cuddles before bed.

Crackers needs to be in a household that is active and is able to offer her continued consistency on her learned commands, give her exercise both mentally and physically. It's best that she be in an adult only home that has a secure and safe yard with tall fencing as Crackers can easily leap over fences. She loves to be active and would be a great dog for agility training.
