Foster Home Feedback 

** Resource guarding and older/considerate children only!

1/24/2023 Foster Feedback: Oxbow came to our house when her former foster had to go on an extended work trip. We have had her for a couple of weeks now, and parts of her sweet, energetic, playful personality are beginning to show. After a full day’s work, I come home and am greeted with an excited pup with a little wiggly butt and lots of noises that let me know that I was missed. She is a very loving dog to the people that are caring for her.  

My husband works from home, so she spends the majority of her day sleeping on a bed in his office. She is free to roam around the house during the day and will take the opportunity to lounge on the couch or bed when she is bored of listening to Zoom meetings all day. We do make sure that all food is pushed far back on the counter while she is roaming. Surprisingly for her short stature, she is a counter-surfer.  She can get her paws and nose to counter level and has tried to steal herself a snack if given the opportunity. 

She is crate trained but is not a huge fan of being in her crate while she has been at our house. She let us know that by destroying a foam pad in her crate and also finding a way to escape from the crate on 2 separate occasions while we were gone for a few hours. She does not have an accident when we do leave her to free roam while we are gone. She is completely house-trained and has cues she gives you when she needs to go outside. 

She has lots of toys but does not play with them too much. There may be a little game of fetch or tug-of-war, but she loses interest quickly. Even though she doesn’t play with her toys much, she does have a history of resource-guarding her toys and food. With this behavior, I do think it would be better if she were in a home with older, considerate children. Oxbow was a little growly towards our toddler granddaughter when she was here for a visit—apparently not a fan of a little girl singing and dancing to Baby Shark—can you blame her? 

Oxbow lives for her walks. She loves going on long walks and playing in the snow. If she could be outside all day, every day she would be extremely happy. I think we are a little too boring for her and she would love to be adopted by an active person/family that spends lots of time outside. 

She is a very sweet, lovable girl that has been moved around quite a bit in the last few months. She deserves to find her forever home where she will continue to thrive and show that sweet personality that we are starting to see from her. 

12/29/2022 Foster Feedback: Oxbow is completely potty trained. She does fine in her kennel but is great when I have left her out of the kennel. She will sneak on your bed though. She does great on leash, although haven’t been able to walk much with the cold. She will pull if she smells something really interesting and likes to stop and sniff a lot. We’ve been working on different cues and check-ins on walks, and she is doing really well. We have also been doing other command training since we were stuck inside so much with the cold and then she had 3 teeth pulled and wasn’t able to chew on treats so had to pause. She will bark when she hears other dogs, but not at other people. Have not come across many dogs in or around my apartment complex to know if there are any other concerns with dogs outside of the resource guarding. Sleeps all day for the most part. Loves to cuddle and lay right on your chest.
