Foster Home Feedback 

** No cats!

3/16/2023 Foster Feedback: I cannot believe this sweet girl has not been scooped up yet! Waggle has a lot of love to give & just wants to be loved back. She loves nothing more than spending time with her humans. She has really been enjoying our nice long walks when the weather allows. She is pretty active & playful during the day, winding down for snuggle time after dinner; Waggle loves spending the night in bed with you & is a great sleeper. She knows ‘sit’ & ‘shake’ but has not yet mastered ‘lie down’ or ‘stay’. There are times Waggle gets especially excited & jumpy (seeing someone new, getting her leash and/or harness out) so I have been working with her on making sure she’s sitting or at least has all 4 paws on the ground before getting attention or putting her leash/harness on.

I have tested the waters a few times leaving her home alone out of her kennel & she does fantastic; Waggle will wait patiently by the door for you & has never touched or destroyed anything. She will still go in her kennel if treats are provided, but much prefers to be out & proves she’s a good girl when you let her stay out. Waggle still has not had any accidents while I’ve had her. She does pretty well in the car but prefers to ride shotgun so she has a view of all there is to see & will sometimes bark at humans and/or dogs walking.

She is very curious about certain sounds on the tv, such as birds, babies crying, sirens & other dogs. If you are eating on the couch, Waggle will sit as close to you as possible in case you want to share, but does not attempt to steal any food; I have no doubt she wouldn’t hesitate to help herself, should you leave food unguarded, however!

Waggle's toy of choice is still anything with a squeaker, especially stuffies that squeak and that she can play tug. We also recently discovered she is NOT a fan of nail trims! I have slowly started trimming her nails on my own one by one with a high-value treat (she’s a big fan of string cheese!) being handed out by a helper; this process seems to be the best for her right now.

Waggle has a heart of gold! She has truly been a joy to foster & I will always have a place in my heart for her.

2/6/2023 Foster Feedback: I have had Waggle for almost 2 weeks and have loved every minute! As is evident by her sweet face, she is a total sweetheart. She is very curious and likes to be ‘in the know’, particularly about any activities in the kitchen. She hasn’t had any accidents in the house. She loves her squeaky toys and playing tug, but also really enjoys puzzle toys and games with her toys, such as hiding them in blankets. She can get a little too excited sometimes but is never aggressive. She is not a fan of going in her kennel, but once in she does pretty well so we continue working on it. We are also working on getting to know the vacuum, she is pretty unsure of it and this is the most I’ve heard her bark as otherwise, she’s fairly quiet. She loves snuggling for naps and giving kisses. Waggle is a smart girl, she responds quickly to a ‘No’ cue and redirects easily. She will sit for a treat so I think she’d do great learning more commands. She walks pretty well on a leash, with very little pulling, and responds right away if asked to go in a different direction. She also seems to like being brushed and is very playful with other dogs. Waggle is a joy and would be a fantastic addition to your family!

1/18/2023 Temporary Care Feedback: I had the joy of having Waggle at my house for a couple of days for a kennel break. She is one of the sweetest dogs we have had in our home. She loves her people so much. She absolutely loves squeaky toys and playing tug of war. She likes to play but is not overly energetic. She didn't have any accidents in our home and seems potty trained. She was great with my 13-year-old son and even when he had friends over and were running around like maniacs, Waggle did great with that commotion. I think she would do well with young children as well. She did great in the car and also does well on walks. Can't say enough great things about this sweet girl! She will make a great addition and be a wonderful family dog.

I took Waggle for a kennel break after she first got spayed, and here’s some stuff I learned about her:

-She walks great in a leash! She might pull a bit if she sees some potential new bffs walking her way but it’s not enough to knock you over or yank your arm.

-She’s sooooo gentle when she plays with you, and she doesn’t guard food or toys!! She loves to shove her toys directly in your face whenever she plays just to make sure you’re aware of how awesome they are to her.

-She couldn’t care less about being picked up. She got many rides up and down the stairs to go potty since she can’t use them due to her stitches, and I think she appreciated the royal treatment.

-She’s quiet for car rides, but she will hop up front and insist on some drivers ed lessons if you leave your seat.

-She stays pretty quiet if she sees anyone out the window- I think I only heard an actual bark once and other than that it was just little chuffs.

-I haven’t seen her cat fixation for myself, but she redirected pretty easily whenever she got too zoned in on my hamster!

-She is not a fan of kennels, but she’s definitely smart enough to get the hang of kennel training. I also wonder if she would handle being left alone better if she was in a room instead since she stays quiet around the house

She is the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet, and yes, her name describes her personality perfectly!!
