Foster Home Feedback
** Not cat friendly
5/21/2022 Foster Feedback: Lois is a beautiful, intelligent, tolerant girl who will be so happy to have a forever home. She has never made an aggressive move toward a person, and she can't wait to make friends with other dogs, but forget about cats. They have come up to us on walks just to pick a fight. She is an expert-level snuggler who loves to give kisses, and is always eager to play with the resident dog or get into vigorous bouts of tug with her people.
It's immediately obvious that Lois is a superior athlete. She has serious muscle definition from her gym regimen, and big hops as well. Her vertical leap got us in some trouble, as part of our fence is only 3 ft high. Although other large dogs have respected the boundary, Lois quickly found that she can clear that from a standing position to go exploring around the neighborhood. A long line leash has reined that in, and we haven't seen her clear the standard 4ft chain link fence in other parts of the yard. Until you're sure, a line and harness is recommended. She does not like having squirrels and bunnies flaunting their freedom.
Commands: Sit is great; stay and come are good, and heel is getting better and better with a training harness. The first time I walked her at the shelter was a two-handed affair, with her low-crawling the entire way. Now, we're about 80% walking and 20% pulling/correcting, using the harness and the "heel" command. She is strong and badly wants to chase the bunnies, but very smart and trainable. The "Sporn" training harness will go with her to her new home.
Lois is pretty anti-kennel. However, she doesn't cause any problems when left loose. Caveat: at our house we already have a dog that chews plastic and toys that are left out, so the place is pretty dog-proof already. If she's into those things, and we don't think she is, you'll quickly figure it out and adjust.
Lois has bean dealt a rough hand; in the last month she was homeless, got stuck at the shelter due to lack of fosters, got spayed (cone for a week), had an unfortunate accident that took her tail (cone for 2 weeks) and relocated to our house. She's prevailed through it all with an unflappable spirit, and is just glad to have someone to love her.
4/27/2022 Volunteer Feedback: Lois is a snuggly, silly, wiggly, and very smiley girl. She loves attention and playing with stuffies or chewing on bones. She really enjoys walks but is currently working on some leash manners when distracted by bunnies or geese, as then she tends to pull.
I had a building shift yesterday and today, and Lois was a part of both of them. She definitely stole my heart. I just can't get over her constant smiles and silly wiggles.
Tonight we had a lot of fun playing with a stuffy toy, specifically Lamb Chop. She would toss Lamb Chop up in the air and then run after it. She enjoyed playing tug as long as she was the winner. We switched Lamb Chop out for a bone before leaving and she enjoyed having that to chew on as well.
Lois gets pretty excited when you go to greet her and tends to jump but has been listening well, especially if you have treats if you tell her to sit. Lois is just truly a sweet girl looking for her furever home.
4/27/2022 Volunteer Feedback: I gave Lois a kennel break for a week and she was so sweet! She loved sniffing around my backyard and playing fetch to get her energy out. She did great giving me the toy in exchange for a treat! She didn’t love her kennel but I let her free roam in my parent's living room while my parents and I were gone for an hour. When we came back it seemed she was just snoozing on the couch (no accidents and nothing destroyed). She also met tons of people at my parent's house and absolutely loved all the attention. This girl has absolutely no stranger danger, she loves everyone! Lois loves her people so much that she would get a little anxious when someone left but after getting a routine down I think she would settle in with no issue. Another very important point to mention is her LOVE for peanut butter!!
** Lois is Lyme and Anaplasmosis positive. These are tick-borne illnesses, and she is currently being treated with Doxycycline.
