ABOUT AMETHYST

Age: ~18 months

Gender: Female

Weight: 53lbs.

Energy Level: Moderate

Overall Drive: Moderate

Location: Mariposa, CA

Amethyst is a very sweet lovable girl and will bond very quickly with her human. She is the definition of a Velcro dog and would like to be with her human all the time if possible. She is an easy keeper, has excellent manners in the house, and an impeccable off-switch

 

Amethyst is potty trained, rides well in the car, is unphased by loud noises, and well-mannered at the vets’ office. She is proficient in her basic skills and working to learn more advanced tasks. She is motivated by praise and food, requiring only mild verbal correction.

 

While she may need a very brief moment to warm up to some men, she loves women, kids, and other dogs instantly. She has shown restraint and respect when interacting with senior pack members but will also take advantage of a more submissive dog. A home with a male of similar size would be best. Due to her high prey drive she cannot share a home with cats or other small animals of any kind.

 

Amethysts ideal home will be active and able to include her in most activities. Due to her highly social personality she would make an excellent hiking and adventure buddy for most any family. Her food drive and eagerness to please make training fun for all. She has been known to dig so a secure yard and close monitoring is required. This gorgeous girl is just the gem you’ve been looking for!
