    Story

    Hello! I’m Flika and I am agile little ball of playful energy!

    When I first got to my foster home I was a bit shy and kind of kept to myself. However, as soon as I figured out I had made some new friends all I wanted to do was play play play! I’m super snuggly, and I don’t mind getting right in your business. Also don’t even think of trying to have a hug or a cuddle without me – I always figure it out and I always come and get right in the middle. I really, really like going for walks and I am interested in meeting other dogs and humans but sometimes I get over excited and get a little barky.. It sounds scarier than it actually is! You know the saying all bark no bite? That’s me! Sometimes I get a bit anxious when I first meet certain men. If that is the case I need a proper introduction and I need to be able to see their hands or I get worried… But within a minute or two I am okay and ready to play! My foster mom has been helping me learn to be polite with strangers by getting me to sit and stay while people walk past me when we are out on our adventures. I guess that way they don’t HAVE to meet me if they don’t want to, and usually I’m a good girl and I listen and get a treeeeat!!! I’m a pretty quick learner, and I am getting the basics down but I bet if you took me to obedience school I would be able to show you how clever I can be. My style of play is still pretty puppyish – I can be a bit mouthy. If you distract me with a rope or any kind of “tug” game I’ll show you what a strong little girl I am! I also really like fetch and I will drop the ball at your feet for you to throw it for me over and over again. I sleep through the night and will get up when you do – so if you want to sleep in on the weekend I am a-okay with that! I’m pretty comfortable in my crate, especially if you lure me in with some cheese, and once I am in there I don’t fuss. I still have some learning to do, and there are a few things that I am not sure how I feel about so patience while I get used to new experiences is definitely appreciated! I promise to make it worth your while with all the puppy snuggles and playtime you could ever ask for!
