Mouse is a playful and curious gal! She loves to play with toys and be chased around by her foster brother. Mouse takes corrections well from her foster brother and needs some encouragement to take play breaks. I’m sure she would love a house with another dog to continue to learn respectful and proper dog behaviour!
She pees and poops outside on a regular schedule, she’s only had a couple pee accidents inside when she was over excited, and she is starting her potty bell journey.
Mouse has two cat foster siblings who she’s excited about but respectful of their boundaries. Mouse has never shown aggression to either cat (even after a few bops on the head).
Mouse has met many folks including children, and has shown no fearful behaviour. Mouse has leash walking experience and is starting to learn proper leash etiquette. She has been exposed to bikes, buses, and many other big and loud obstacles living in a busy downtown area.
Mouse is able to sleep in her crate overnight for 7-8 hours with no disruptions. Mouse occasionally whines when first crated, but is able to settle within 5 minutes.
Mouse is very responsive to her name, has learned sit, touch, wait, paw and is working on lay down and more!
Mouse has been left for periods on her own in the crate for up to 3-5 hours without any incident. Mouse has taken a few car rides while in her crate, she settles after a bit and lets the driver know if their singing is off key!
Overall, Mouse is a smart, moldable puppy full of enthusiastic love to give! She has a great routine and base training to begin with. With the right home and structure I believe she will be an excellent dog!
