Who’s a good girl ?!? I’m a good girl!!! At least that’s what they have been telling me for the past couple days! I have been doing so much better in my crate! I barked a little bit this morning when my foster parents slept in but just enough to let them know I was up and ready to start my day!

I have been going into my crate very easily lately and my foster parents put me in my foster brothers crate yesterday and I didn’t try to break out at all! Everyone was so proud of me!!! Someone even came to check on me during the day and I was quiet! Like I said, I’m a good girl on the block 💁🏻

Let’s start with the the little less appealing things about me (after all, these are the things I will have to work on, but I’m willing to do the work if you are!):

I go back and fourth with doing well in my crate! I have been very good lately and have been quiet, if I do make noise, it’s for about 5 minutes and I’m down for the count. My foster parents normally take me for a walk about an hour before bed, it’s just a quick one, but it helps me get out my extra energy!

I need some recall lessons, because I’m pretty bad at it some days! Normally in the house I am good, but if I am roaming free and get a good scent, there is no stopping me.

I do need to lose a few pounds (I was slacking hard on my summer body this winter)

I need to be watched when the door is going to open. I need to be told to sit and stay, then I know it’s not time to go out. I have got a lot better then I used to be, but I may try to go back to my old ways with you, just remember to be stern with me!!

**Important** It is the recommendation of FTH that every newly adopted dog remain on leash, both inside and out, for a minimum of 14 days. As most of our dogs are outdoor dogs and strays, this will help prevent dogs running away as they are adjusting to their new home. At the same time it will help start building the bond between you and the dog.  Thank you!

I like to whine some days more then others. I like to be pet lots and give kisses, so when I can’t be right beside you, I will make sure you know I miss you. It is important to ignore me when I whine so I know it’s not going to get me what I want.

I would benefit from training. I promise you that I will be the exception to the rule “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” because I am a smart girl, I just like to try and push my boundaries. Training will help you and I bound better and create respect between us.

My previous owners said I’m not good with cats, however my opinion on small dogs have changed, so if you are willing to work with me on it, I am sure I could manage.

The best things about me:

I’m good on my leash! I stop when I get a good scent, but one good pull will keep me going.

I am house trained! Need I say more? But I will!

I enjoy water ! I love to make some splashes in puddles, unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to go swimming yet, but you better believe I am excited for the experience 🙂

Cuddles ?!? I LOVE THEM !!!

I do enjoy lazy Sundays after a good Saturday filled with fun! Or even a nice long walk in the morning!! I can be high energy when you need me to, and relaxed after that! Best of both worlds if I do say so myself!

I don’t know why I took so long to mention this, but I LOVE kids, I would change the saying to “mans best friend” to “kids best friend” for myself. They are just so much fun!!!

I am good with other dogs!!! Sometimes I like to bully my foster brother a bit by taking his bone, but I’m normally pretty good when I’m set straight ! If I’m a solo dog, that may be best for me, if not, I am able to tolerate another dog, just make sure you correct me when I’m wrong!!

I don’t go crazy when I see other dogs when I’m out for walks! I’ve been told that’s a good quality to have! I may look their way to see where they are but I have better things to sniff!

I can be pretty cute sometimes too… ok, ok, I’m cute all the time!

What are you waiting for ? Put in an application so I can go home with you as soon as possible!!
