My story

This is what my foster has to say about me! Want to learn more? Come by and ask a staff member to meet with her!1. If the dog was around other dogs in the home or outside the home, describe the dog`s reaction and behavior towards them, including play style. -Annie was a bit cautious of the resident dog though once acclimated and comfortable in the new home she would initiate play. Play really consisted of her just opening her mouth and the occasional mini jump of excitement. She never got possessive over toys or food, though did like alone time when on the couch. They typically just co-existed and were happy to see each other when she was let out of her crate! She seems to do great with other dogs. 2. Any other observations about the dog`s behavior around other people and animals? -She loves her caretakers! When let out of her crate she gets so excited to see you and does happy little romps around the room. She is really just a sweet girl. She was a great dog from the start and was fine with a new person handling her such as to be carried in and out of the car, or being bathed. Otherwise, when walking past strangers, she never barks, doesn`t pull, and pays just slight interest. 4. If you crated the dog, describe the dog`s behavior to and in the crate. -She did have some nights where she whined a bit in her crate, but I think that was more due to being in a different room from me. This was very short lived, maybe about 10 minutes. Otherwise, she will happily enter her crate throughout the day just to chill there, and goes in with ease when I head to work! Its her safe space. 5. Any funny stories or qualities that you especially enjoyed about your foster dog, which could be shared with potential adopters? : -She just seems like such a grateful girl! She built trust very quickly, and I think genuinely appreciates the love. She did so so well with her spay and has really began to show her personality. My favorite thing that makes me smile every time is her little romps when she gets excited. She will jump (just her front paws) up and down when she gets excited for food, or in the morning when she first sees you and it is absolutely the cutest thing. Also this girl can SNORE. I found that adorable too.
