My Perfect Match:
-Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home. Strangers make me nervous and need to know how to interact with me.
- Has a quiet home, I love my friends, but I don't like having new people in my home.
-Will continue with my training. I am very smart and need work on my stranger danger.
-Has experience with reactive dogs. I have a bit of a "history" but if you know how to manage me and keep me feeling safe and surrounded by people who will respect my needs, I am such a good girl!
-Has lots of patience and understanding. I was a fearful puppy and was continually put into situations where I felt unsafe so my fear was reinforced. It's up to you to keep me feeling safe!
-Is pro-muzzle. I need to wear one in public spaces to keep me and everyone else safe and secure.
-Has a good ability to recognize and understand a dogs body language and respect it.
-Will love me forever no matter what!!
I love to run and play with my dog friends, learn new tricks, and snuggle with my favorite people. I am sweet and quirky and playful when I am feeling happy and safe.
I have been bounced around a lot and I'm looking for some consistency so I can relax.
I am extremely nervous of strangers and will protect myself from this perceived threat, will you put in the time and effort to work through a training plan with me??
I came to WAG last year as a surprise puppy that my mom's family wasn't ready to care for. I was adopted when I was still young, but my fears were not managed properly. I became more fearful and they could not take care of me how I needed.
