Foster Home Feedback 

** NO cats!

Medical Feedback:   For anyone interested in Carly, I'd love to explain her urinary incontinence. I have been Carly's foster for the past 3 months, as we were working on weaning her daily medications to manage her bladder issues and Carly is doing great! In the time we have spent with her, she has had no issues or accidents that affect her day to day due to the help of her daily medication. No accidents, no tinkling with excitement, she has been doing great with her 1 medication. She gets 1/2 a pill daily and does great with that!! She has stayed in her kennel for 6 hours before with no issues. I just wanted to explain our experience with her on that. She is a wonderful girl & someone will be so lucky to welcome her into their home.

10/25/2022 Foster Feedback: Ahhh where to start with this little tiger lady, we have had Carly for the past 2 months and absolutely adore her. We love to call her cute, cute Carly, because she is simply the cutest!! Here are some things to know about our favorite tiger lady:

-She is the cutest. She seriously looks like a Siberian tiger and has the most unique markings, hence why she is our tiger lady.
-Carly is just the sweetest. I have never seen a happier dog than this girl, especially when you come home. She gets SO excited to see you!! She has a solid 5 minute stretch of excitement including zoomies, little jumps, showing off her toys, giving kisses, the whole 9 yards, then after a good few minutes, she is back lounging on the couch, just observing what you are doing with her favorite toy.
-This girl kennels great and is very treat motivated. She loves all treats and takes them very nicely, but her favorite high reward treat is string cheese. 
-She LOVES people. We take her to work a couple times a week and she loves seeing the girls at our office and does great hanging out in our offices taking naps, playing with her toys, and enjoying walk breaks. You barely even know she is in your office with you.
-She is turning into a little cuddle bug, it wasn't her thing right away, but she loves to be cuddled up next to us now.
-Carly loves to be active, yet she is overall a very calm dog. She loves to run and play in the backyard, play with her foster brother, and loves walks. She is VERY strong and sometimes pulls on her walks, but is redirected very well with cheese. She gets a little excited when she sees other dogs and this is something we are working on. 
-She does great in the car and she got to help my husband harvest this year in the field. She helped make sure he was doing a good job in the combine. It was a fun adventure for her!!
-She loves to play with her bloodhound foster brother, she likes to jump on him and play with her arms a lot, so I think a more submissive dog would do best with her type of play, but she loves to play. 
-All night long she sleeps in a chair in our living room with her bloodhound brother. If you let her sleep in your bed with you, she highly enjoys it and really doesn't move at all. 

-Carly makes my husband and I so happy!!! She is just a goofy girl with the sweetest personality. Her muscles are insane, she is like a little bulldozer bulldog, so I do think older kids would be best for her, especially when she gets excited! She has loved all of the people she has met, so she does great with everyone.

-Again, she loves her dog friends, but I think she'd do best with a submissive dog as she tends to dominate our male dog.

-She is such a great girl and will make any family so happy!!! If this sounds like your girl, apply today!! She's excited to meet you!!

9/9/2022 Temporary Care Feedback: Our beautiful tiger lady is just the sweetest. Carly loves treats and takes them very gentle. She is a great walker and loves to explore the outdoors. She absolutely loves dog friends and plays very well. In our house, she is very laid back, just hangs around, plays with toys, and naps. She is a great sleeper too. She loves to sleep in bed with you and barely moves all night. Carly has met some human friends with us and did great, she seems to really enjoy males. Carly has been a great office companion too. I took her to work and she laid on her dog bed all day, greeted people she saw, and had some great walkie breaks throughout the day. Carly is looking for a family to call her own.

8/11/2022 Volunteer Feedback: What a beautiful girl Carly is! She has such a gentle spirit you wish you could give her kisses and pets all day long—and luckily, she would like that too! Carly is a low-vigor dog who has a subdued approach to life. She walks at a beautiful leisurely pace, but, honestly, she would prefer to lounge around. She enjoys squeaky balls, but is not a huge fan of chase or fetch—she just likes to lie down and go to town squeaking! When alone, she does wonderfully—she does not whine or bark; instead, she just rests and patiently waits for her turn to receive attention. Although she has little to no issues being close to other dogs, when on a leash, she becomes fixated once she spots another dog. With the right treat and authoritative tone, however, she manages to redirect. She knows “sit” and happily follows the command for a treat. Carly does have trouble holding her urine, so she requires training in that area. Training this stunning girl will take a patient and authoritative owner (who keeps good treats on hand!) She is an affectionate girl who appreciates a good pet but does not think of herself as a lap dog; instead, she enjoys laying down beside her owner and receiving pets. Carly is a spectacular girl who is worthy of a home that can shower her in the love and affection she deserves (and will undoubtedly give back)!

7/30/2022 Volunteer Feedback: Carly is a soft-hearted, gorgeous girl! Her beautiful, tiger-like coat makes her the center of attention—and rightfully so! She is a gentle giant when receiving affection, but she can also be an independent and strong lady. She needs an owner who can effectively handle and guide her since she is a powerhouse (when she wants to be!) While she can be somewhat stubborn on a leash if she fixates on another dog in the distance, when she is distraction-free, she walks at a beautiful leisurely pace. From what I have seen, this fixation on other dogs is not fear or aggression based (she does not abruptly lunge or bark, she merely watches and begins to pull if the other dog reacts) it appears that she just wants to get to know other dogs. Redirections can be a bit of a challenge, but if you find the right, most enticing treat, then she will happily follow! She still needs to work on her cues, but I am sure that she will learn splendidly with an owner who is patient with a beautiful, one-of-a-kind girl like her.
