|Merry Pitmas ! All of our pitties ( minus pups ) are free to good homes for the month of December !
FOSTER UPDATE: Froggy is a great dog that is quickly learning how to socialize well with other dogs and people. She is fully housebroke, well crate trained, and will walk on leash well unless she is scared or you let her sniff the grass. She is excellent with my cat and has very little to no prey drive, squirrels, cats, etc. outside don't interest her much, she just looks but doesn't respond in any other way.
She knows how to go in her crate on command, wait at open doors and is learning better leash training and basic obedience. She is low energy but greatly benefits from going on long walks, currently she goes on 3 mile runs, but definitely doesn't need them, and 1 to 2 mile walks in the evenings. She isn't high energy and would be happy to sit on the couch and cuddle all day but is also happy to go for walks and explore. She recently went to the beach for the first time and after being a little unsure of her surroundings for the first 15 min. She relaxed and LOVED it, she dug holes, played in the sand, rolled around, her tail was constantly wagging, she didn't want to leave, and she played and met with a number of dogs and saw horses which she didn't even blink an eye at them. **You can see pictures of her playing on the beach under More Photos**
She took a few days to be relaxed around my dog, but once she did, she looks to him for support outside or in when she's nervous or scared, and when she gets a chance she tries to play with him even when she's in her crate and he's outside. She needs time to live with new dogs as she can get snippy and scared growly or raise a lip but she can correct easily as long as you are consistent with correction, she's not super submissive all dogs. On leash she is excellent at meeting dogs, she is more insecure off leash in the home with new dogs off leash. She has not been grumpy or complained at all with my dog after living with him for 5 days. She is nervous and scared around men, although if they spend time with her on the couch or in a controlled environment she will warm up quickly and bond to them quite well as she did with one of my male friends.
Every day Froggy is getting better and better about cars, men, loud noises. She now doesn't flinch when cars drive by, she's still nervous around trucks but won't stop or pull, just moves over to me or my dog. I think in a few weeks in a home environment with basic obedience, recall training, new experiences and a well-developed routine, she will transform into the easiest, lovable, secure dog ever. She has NO anxiety about being left alone, in the crate and has NO mouthiness, doesn't jump up. She has only barked a few times which I quickly corrected. Otherwise, she's quite calm and quiet inside and outside.
Froggy came from the Chico area - we pulled her and four others to make room for fire victims. She couldn't be sweeter with people - though has a bit of difference towards some men.
