Foster Home Feedback 

1/14/2023 Foster Feedback: We have had Blakely for a little over a week now and she is such a sweet, sweet soul. She initially was weary of our larger (Great Dane/male) resident dog. After those first couple of days and a few more play runs outside together, they are getting along great and play well. She loves running and playing with the other dog in the snow. Twice she has pushed open the door to the garage when it was open and she did not take off with the open door and came right back inside when called. 
 
Blakely does not like to be in the kennel and is quite the escape artist. Three times she has gotten out of the kennel with it locked (we think she climbs out the top of the door). She got out unauthorized for a whole day while we were at work and while she got into some treats and human goodies that were under the Christmas tree and she knocked off the counter, she had no accidents and didn’t chew/wreck anything. At night she is perfectly content sleeping on the floor next to our bed or on the couch, although her favorite spot is on the bed next to us. She has been doing well being out overnight. We do keep her in the kennel during the work day and she has not had any accidents.
 
We have three cats and she has had no problems. Blakely will go up to them curiously and sniff, but heeds their hissing warning and walks away. Once or twice she has given chase to them as they run past to their cat door, but not in a mean or aggressive way; more like a chase play. To be honest, our resident dog probably told her they like that because he does it all the time with them.
 
We have a 9 and 10 year old and 5 month old. Blakely snuggles in with the older kids and will sit nicely next to the baby and lick him every so often. She does not seem to be bothered at all when he cries, although will go over to look at him and make sure we know he is fussing.
 
Blakely continues to have resource guarding around food. She will not eat any of her food in the kennel, but gobbles it down when given it outside the kennel in a separate room. She will growl at our resident dog if there is food out (like a human eating a snack in the living room), even if she is not getting anything. She does respond well and stops when firmly told no growl.
