My foster home is trying to teach me “four on the floor”, but you see, my first home had ALOT of dogs in it and we all had to compete to get any food that we could; anywhere, anything was fair game, so you know what they say about old habits…
That leads to my other difficulties- I am very slow to warm up, I’m very scared of new people and I need patience, but it doesn’t take long before you will be totally rewarded with an incredibly devoted pup. Once I trust you I am incredibly lovey dovey, I have a look that my foster mom says is ”absolute adoration”
The vet says I’m some sort of shepherd-lab cross but I’m very small. Someone suggested some Kelpie dog too and after looking them up, my foster mom thinks there’s a distinct possibility. I have some shepherd/guard behaviours/tendencies- anyone coming to the door will be announced loudly, and evidently I needs work on door manners and be under control of my human, or not greet people and meet them once my human lets them in and they are in a spot where they can ignore me for awhile so I can get use to them being in “my“ space.
Oh and the crate thing, I HATE it. I only get fed in it so I’ll go in willingly now but once I’m done eating I bark to let you know I’m done. I’ll eventually settle and I do sleep in it.
I’ve had a very stressful first half of my life, my foster mom thinks I deserves to have a wonderful loving second half, in a home with a doggo brother to help make me more comfortable and confident(I’m very different when meeting people and other dogs when the resident dog here is with me than when I’m on my own) and humans who want to love me. I’d happily be someone’s running partner or agility dog! If you think you could use a loyal, loving pup in your life and can handle my baggage, please put an application in for me and let’s meet up!!
