This young, smart girl is highly active and fast as lightening- in and out of water! She is a loyal and loving dog who sees her family as her pack and loves to be by your side. Minnow is great with humans and loves attention, but she is still working on becoming properly socialized with some other dogs.
Strong and outgoing, Minnow tends to view herself as alpha when meeting other dogs; she does best with dogs her size and larger and responds well to firm correction from an astute handler. She will need continued encouragement as she often becomes stressed when overstimulated by loud noises or activity. She loves to travel in the car, does well at the veterinarian’s office as long as her family is there to support her, and behaves well in the home. She self-regulates well and will find activities to do on her own when her humans are occupied. She is crate trained and has mastered basic obedience. She will need continued work on learning respectful leash manners, especially in high arousal situations. Due to her prey drive, Minnow would do best in a home free of smaller dogs, cats, and young children.
Minnow’s ideal forever home would include someone who has the time and patience to work with her through more advanced training, will exercise with her (a lot), and above all, will love her. Given her young age and positive attitude, she holds the potential to excel in almost any activity. Could this silly but sweet girl complete your family? Submit an application for Minnow today!
