12/8/22 Foster Feedback: Time for an update! Adalee has been busy making new friends! The dog who lives next door has become her bestie. Every time Adalee goes outside, she looks for her friend. They love to play and when the weather is nice, they go on long walks together. In addition, we have fostered a few other dogs along with Adalee. The first one was a beagle that was just under a year old. He was a great match for Adalee because he loved to play but also loved to snuggle. The second was a chihuahua who tolerated Adalee but did not want to interact much with her. I was very proud of Adalee as she was able to take the chihuahua's cues and focused her attention on our resident chihuahua, who loves to play with her. The third foster is a dog that is about the same size as Adalee. It took about 24 hours for them to understand each other but now they are great friends. They share bones, beds and love to participate in the neighborhood watch together.
Adalee has also acquired a couple of new skills. She has mastered "down" and "shake" and even gets into a "down" position automatically when she is waiting to be fed. She is fully crate trained and makes us so proud when we come home to find her sitting quietly in her crate, waiting to be let out. While she's not a fan of extreme cold, winter weather doesn't seem to phase her much. She is still excited to go outside and enjoys walks. We have taken her out to a few dog-friendly stores and she has enjoyed meeting people while politely cruising the aisles. She is such a good girl!
8/22/2022 Foster Feedback: Adalee brought eight tiny surprises with her when she came to the rescue! She gave birth to them a couple of weeks after her arrival. She was a good mom but is now spayed and will not have to do that again. I am sure she is happy about that because she is a fun-loving, carefree young dog and wants to be free to enjoy herself without having to raise kids!
We brought Adalee to our home when it was time for her and the puppies to live separately. Since she arrived, she has enjoyed relaxing, playing, chewing on bones, and going on walks. She is very dog friendly and has become best friends with our neighbor's dog, which is about her size. A beagle visited us for a few days and they played until they were exhausted. She also adores our chihuahua, but she can be too much for him as she seems to get hyper-focused on small dogs. I've noticed it at home (we give the chihuahua breaks when he is overwhelmed) and when we've been in public. She is not cat friendly (her first foster had a cat) so perhaps this is related to her prey drive. (When we are on walks, she is always on bunny and bird watch and even remembers from time to time where she saw one of them the last time we walked!) She would do best with a dog that is about 30lbs or more.
Adalee is friendly with people but will be a little cautious at first. Being with another dog seems to make her more comfortable with new people. She hasn't been around small children but met our neighbor's 8-year-old, who is very respectful of dogs, and she did well. She is very food motivated so that is another way to gain her trust! As a matter of fact, we have caught her a time or two on the counter in our laundry room where we kept the dog treats. This girl can jump! Keeping counters clear of food items is a must. She hasn't done it when we've been around, but if we're not in the room with her, she will go for it.
Speaking of jumping, she will jump baby gates and low fences. She will also chew a tie-out. She would do best in a fenced yard where the fence is 5' or higher, although that isn't necessary if she is supervised and on a sturdy tie-out. Because Adalee is young and energetic, she needs a good amount of exercise and stimulation. She loves to chew on Benebones and Nyla-bones and will toss toys around and play with herself. So far, she's not wanted to play fetch, though. We take her on a 3-mile walk every day and that helps tire her out.
Adalee is solidly potty trained. She does not like crates and will destroy anything left with her in the crate except for a frozen peanut butter Kong or one of her chew bones. We are working on making the crate a happy place and we are making some progress. We crate her in the same room as our other dogs and we think that helps.
We adore Adalee and we are honored to be part of her journey to her forever home.
