Hi! My name is
I have an Adoption Application Pending!
Terrier, American Pit Bull/Retriever, Labrador/Mix
Date of Birth
December 24, 2017
My foster mom and dad think I’m an absolute sweetheart! All I want is to follow you around and observe what you’re doing. Humans are so strange, they must be supervised by me at all times! Don’t worry, I get paid with pets and belly rubs.
I also have what my foster parents call a super sniffer! I love to smell new environments. On walks I love to smell everything, and sometimes I can be adamant about stopping to smell something, so I’ll need a patient owner to teach me to leave it. With a set walk pattern I’ve been better at walking. On that note, I am a strong girl, and will need a strong owner until I get this walk thing down.
I can be reactive on leash when I see other dogs, so I will growl and bark to let them know to keep their space away from me. However it’s just because I am a little nervous and insecure myself – when I met a dog in a properly set up meeting I tucked my tail and was afraid of him! I may do well in a home with another calm and well socialized dog who is able to give me space and read my body language. I just need a slow intro and a family who won’t rush me so I know it’s ok.
I have had only one accident in the house on the first day, otherwise I’m a pro at going outside. I’m also a pro at sleeping in my kennel, just give me a peanut butter Kong and I’m golden. I am a very quiet girl, only a couple deep woofs when I come across something or someone I don’t know, like a garbage truck! As I can be startled easily, a home with older kids would be best. I am also not an apartment or condo dog, as you can imagine I wouldn’t be a fan of narrow hallways but a townhouse or house would be fine for me so I can go straight outside on my walks.
I love to nap and in the morning after I pee, I just lay on the couch while my foster dad works from home, but I remind him to take lots of petting breaks. My super sniffer means I’m interested in whatever food you’re eating but if you ignore my inquisitive sniffs, I lay down like a good girl.
I can’t wait to give my forever home all the kisses they can handle!” – xo, Kelly
