My name is Dizzy, but my foster parents call me Daisy. I made myself right at home and have claimed the bed as mine. I prove the bad statistics about APT wrong. I am the sweetest girl you'll ever have the pleasure of meeting; I don't have an aggressive bone in my body. I get along with all dogs and have very good on leash manners. I love bunnies and would like nothing more than to chase them but can be easily redirected. My foster parents think I would have a blast at an off-leash park, my recall is excellent especially if I know you have treats. I am very cuddly and love giving kisses. I am good with some basic commands like sit and stay, we are working on lay down and others. I would love to be in a house where someone was home all the time, but I do settle down in my crate after about half an hour and take a nap. We are working on crate training. Once I learn that not everything is a toy, I would do great being left to roam the house when no one is home and sleep on the couch. I can be food motivated but I know my manners and will not beg for your food or jump up and take food off the table or the counter. If you want to take my food away while I am eating, I don't mind but I definitely want it back. I would likely do well with older children as I'm not a fan of the small ones and I can get a bit pushy when excited. Car rides are fun once I get past not wanting to jump in the car and the car sickness but I'm getting better.
Dizzy came from a high-kill shelter in Bakersfield California.
