Farrah (20210715-02)

From: Texas

This brindle mom got her leg crushed at some point before rescue. She has a bit of a limp as a result, but it doesn’t stop her. She loves to run and play chase with her foster buddies and fetch with foster mom. She enjoys sunbathing and people watching, and going on lazy walks to sniff, explore, and do her business. She walks well on a leash but a harness is recommended as she is strong, She has walked on leash with her foster brothers and even my female dog, and done well. She plays well with other similar sized dogs, but she would rather play with and be near people. She is a cuddler and likes to be at your feet wherever you are. She’s also a vacuum and a speed bump – so if she’s with you while you’re cooking, anything that drops is fair game.

She is little timid & needs proper introduction to other dogs. She is best with male dogs but warms up to other females with time and supervision. She’s generally submissive but doesn’t want anyone near when it’s time for food. She is smart and learned the dog door fast. Her playful, happy go lucky attitude will win your heart over in no time.

She is crate trained but she doesn’t like going in, and she’ll pancake herself when I say “Ok, let’s go to the kennel”. I’ve tried positive reinforcement to make her feel better about it, and usually give her a favorite treat or her breakfast/dinner in there to keep it feeling like no big deal. She doesn’t whine or cause a fuss once in and will usually just sit or lay there and watch what is going on around her.

She listens well most of the time and knows some very basic commands like, no, wait, walk, up, down, gentle. She is enthusiastic so just need to be careful around small children, not aggressive just little hyper
