Hi, my name is Ebony AKA Ebby girl! I am currently in a foster home with 2 big furry foster brothers and 2 little human foster siblings. I am fantastic with kids and am extremely gentle for my size and age. I have not been around cats yet so I’m not sure how I will react to them, but my foster mom thinks I would be great with proper introductions. I think water is the most fun ever and quite often try to sneak into the bath with my foster siblings. I love a good game of fetch to burn some energy but in general I’m a fairly low energy girl and am more than happy to lay on the couch for a good snuggle or lounge out on the deck in the sunshine!
I REALLY like going for walks and do really well on a leash. Everyone comments how well behaved I am when we’re out and about! I willingly go into my crate and sleep ALL night long for my foster family. I am almost 100% house trained. I know my basic commands like sit, lay down, shake, leave it. I am great in the car and am just happy to be tagging along!
I have a lot of love to give and can’t wait to share it with you and your family 🖤
She is quite nervous in new environments and barks when seeing new dogs. We’ve been working on it with her and she is definitely getting better. In my opinion it is not aggression but but more fear based. She is very timid but once she is comfortable and knows she’s safe, she is great. We’ve never had an issue with her not getting along with other dogs or being aggressive in any way, it is more fear leash reactivity. She’s met many dogs (my parents 3 dogs - large and small, my sister in laws 2 large dogs, and my sisters 2 dogs). She just barks initially and takes some time to warm up which can take a lot patience, but she does warm up to them and then she is perfectly fine. It is more just a fear reaction we think.
