Other: **In addition to the adoption donation fee of $350, I require a $150 refundable training deposit to make sure I get off to a great start with my new owners!
Thank you for all the laughs dear Scarlett! This little girl just learned to swim. I've never seen a dog fall in love with the water so fast. With a little force to get her swimming, she took to it like wild fire. It's hard not to smile and laugh at her enthusiasm. If you are and active family with a pool, older kids, and a playful younger dog, you have hit your mark with this little girl. She is high energy and loves to fetch the tennis ball. She will have to be told when to stop in a stern manner, but she listens well!!
I don't crate her because she's a good girl and doesn't chew things up, is potty trained, and sleeps well through the night so I don't see a need. I just left her lose in the house with my other three dogs for four hours and she... and my house were fine when I returned, although she would like to have a family member home more than not. I'm guessing another dog gives her confidence while you're away as well.
Her previous owners wanted to euthanize her because they couldn't afford surgery after she was hit by a car. She had a broken leg that needed a rod and time to heal, but she's now 100% and the life of the party. Every visitor that comes to our house is seen as an arm to throw the ball. She loves people, other dogs, walks, playing ball, playing with other dogs and life. She would benefit from a training class to help with leash skills, but other than that, I find her to be a hoot.
Now that she has her new found love of swimming, she will sometimes take a spin without the ball. Or jump in with the ball already in her mouth. As much as she loves the ball, she will not even ask for it back if another dog gets it first. She goes to find another. She will be a great addition to the right family.
