Inga is beautiful inside and out! This super sweet girl wants to spend her days beside her person and can't wait to meet her forever family.
More than anything, Inga wants to please her handler - which makes training a breeze. She can be a bit timid when meeting new people but has gained confidence while in rescue and will likely continue to become more outgoing as her person guides her through new situations. Inga gets along well with other dogs with proper introductions, engaging in respectful behavior with dogs her size. Though she is mostly submissive and sweet, Inga can play a bit rough and thus needs careful and controlled introductions to small dogs. Inga rides well in the car, has done well with the veterinarian, and isn't the biggest fan of loud noises but holds her own when she hears them. She is fully house- and crate-trained, has mastered basic obedience, and responds well to verbal correction. She has not encountered cats in her foster home.
Inga is a great all-around dog who would excel in competitive obedience, agility, or scent work. She may do best with older children as her size and exuberance might be too much for young children or the elderly. Inga loves to be active and would make a great jogging, walking, or hiking partner. This fun girl is ready for the next step in life: into your home and your heart!
