11/11/21: We've finally figured this girl out! Toast needs an active home and needs exercise to get her energy out. Great for someone who likes to run and be active to take her for a good long run (she could be trained on a treadmill for wintertime), and holy smokes what a difference. Toast is definitely an adventure dog!  

We haven't used her anxiety meds in days, and I think she will settle in very well with a more active family. She does still need some leash work, greeting strangers/other dogs, but once she's tired, she's a completely different dog. 

Now that we know she needs more physical stimulation, we will also do our best to work on those manners! This likely means she won't be a good apartment dog unless she's properly worked with and exercised. 
 

10/18/21: Toast has come a long way in a few weeks! She still has a bit of stranger danger but warms up very quickly now.

She's not a super cuddly dog but will follow you around the house and sleep under the covers with you when it's her idea. Otherwise, Toast happily naps in her kennel. We give her lots of blankets because she loves to "dig and fluff" and make everything perfect for bedtime. 

We still have anxiety medication for her but we now use it more on an "as needed" basis. We live near a park and given the high traffic area, this benefits her well, versus a daily med. We tend to dose her after school when kids frequent the play area more. 

In the house, she's a dream. No accidents, quiet in her kennel, we have not noticed any food or toy aggression. Toast is an easy pup to enjoy, which we have so far!

10/7/21: Toast is quite the character! She can be a little aloof off the bat but she does love her people. We are working through some anxiety issues; there were a lot of changes to her life, but she takes her meds well!

She is always ready to play. Toast has long legs and loves zooming around the house. She barks at my dogs to get them to play, even if they don't want to. She has only had one accident while she's been with us, and goes all night without issue. She does SUPER well in her kennel and often sleeps in there with the door open. 

Toast is looking for a family who can continue to help her thrive and understands that she may need a little more patience, but she will repay it ten-fold!
