Start your mornings right with Bagel! This lovable goofball is putty in your hands once she gets to know you and loves to zoom around outside and take long car rides with her person. If her floppy ears aren’t enough to win you over, her fun-loving personality certainly will.
If she were a human, Bagel would be a gardener. She loves to “rearrange” her foster’s yard, so anyone with manicured beds beware! She would love a digging pit in her new home but could easily learn what’s off limits when asked. Initially she is cautious and avoids new people, but she warms up quickly when allowed to approach on her own terms. She can be nervous when out and about, but in quieter areas she can settle well – for this reason, she’d do best outside of a city environment. She usually avoids other dogs and would prefer to be the only dog in her forever home. Bagel does great in the car, isn’t fazed by loud noises, and is motivated by food which makes her a great study. She is very soft and only requires gentle correction and is currently working on chewing only appropriate items in her foster home. Bagel has mastered basic obedience and is currently working on some additional commands.
Bagel’s ideal home would be in a quieter area with very few people coming and going. She doesn’t require a ton of exercise but loves running around in the yard when given the chance. Bagel really enjoys her time with her people and would be best suited in a home where she could sleep in their bed but does sleep well in her crate when asked. Calm, peaceful, and routine are the keys to her happiness. Funny girl Bagel can’t wait to see what her new life may hold and is ready to meet you with open paws!
