Foster Home Feedback 

8/28/23 Foster Feedback:  Columbia's high school class voted her Most Likely to Be Your C.E.O. (Canine Executive Officer). This sweet baby loves to snuggle and run to her humans with her butt wiggling at full speed, but she's also confident and a natural leader. Whenever there is a new UFO (Unidentified conFusing Object) around the house, she volunteers to be the first to investigate it and make sure it's safe for her siblings. Plus, she dresses for success every day with her beautiful coat!

Columbia was found as a stray with her siblings and they started off being unsure about where they landed and where their next meal was coming from. It's been a joy to watch them blossom over the past week and figure out that they lucked into the land of abundance, with three square meals a day, plenty of clean water, toys to play with, and a soft, safe place to sleep! Columbia's potty training is going well, and if she is sleeping in her kennel she will bark to let you know that she has to go potty. She also barks for a bit when she's settling in to sleep, but she likes her kennel and will walk in willingly. She is a bit intimidated by my big dogs who know to keep out of the puppy room, but I think that once she gets a chance to play with them that they would be best friends. She plays nicely with her siblings even when they annoy her, and she loves every human she meets.
