Adoption in Progress
Female, 1 year, bully X, 50 lbs
I am a young pup that is full of energy and life. I am a cuddly, playful, gentle, affectionate dog who loves playing fetch. My foster mom takes me on two walks a day and plays fetch with me everyday which makes me happy as I love being outside. I am starting to walk on the leash much better, but I will need someone with a sturdy hand to help redirect me and teach me good manners on a leash. I am a fast learner and aim to please, I know how to sit, come, stay, and leave it. My foster mom just taught me how to shake a paw and we are working on how to lay down.
I love squeaky toys and my foster mom will bring them on walks with me as opposed to treats. When I see my food being prepared, I will sit right away and drool quietly while I wait for you to give it to me. I do not beg for food when my foster mom is eating, and I am really quiet around the house. I am house trained and will let you know when I have to go outside, I have not had any accidents yet.
I am starting to get used to my crate and will sleep in it for the whole night, I just may need some treats to convince me to get into it. Once I am in, I am surrounded by all my blankets and toys and I feel really safe and will fall asleep right away. My foster mom calls me a cuddle bug, and if you let me on the bed, I will cuddle you all night.
I am good with other dogs when I am walking and will for the most part not pay attention to them. The other day, I was walking and this other dog kept on barking at me and I just kept on walking. However, sometimes if a dog shows excitement towards me, I want to meet them and will get excited as well. During my time with my foster mom, I have never aggressively lunged at another dog.
I do have a high prey drive especially towards cats, so I need to find a home that does not have any. If there are other dogs in my new home, I would do best with a medium to large male dog.
I am the sweetest pup you will ever meet and if you are willing to put some patience into helping me with my leash manners and training, I will be the best pup and love you forever!
