Favorite Animals and Breeds!
Name - Bianca
Nicknames - B
Age - young
Weight - around 45 lbs
Other dogs - LOVES dogs! Must be adopted into a home with a male doggy brother she can grow up with
Cats - Loves playing chase with the cat, but also responds when the cat hisses by walking away
Kids - Very gentle and affectionate, would do great with kids
Background - Pulled from Bakersfield shelter with bad demodex at 3 - 4 months. Extremely frightened and timid upon arrival - had to be carried inside, she was terrified of the leash.
Crate trained - Loves her crate. We don't close the crate door at night because she still has accidents but otherwise loves hanging out inside it.
Leash trained - Working on it but MUCH better than before. Took her jogging and she did better than walking. Gets skittish sometimes but mostly does a good job, especially when walking with our dogs.
Housebroken - Not yet. Very good about going when we let her outside but not always good at holding it in until we let her out.
Eating habits - Loves food. Eats 3 to 4 times a day and gobbles it up.
Commands known - Sit and Shake
Car rides - Scared of car rides. Got sick twice but recently is fine as long as she has some human contact (hand on her head, laying at your feet, etc)
Bath time - Doesn't love it but doesn't hate it
Affectionate - Love motivated. Cuddler. Always wants to be touching you and following you. She warms up quickly but needs to do it on her own time
Activity level - Medium to high. She plays with my dogs by chasing/being chased for about 45 minutes or so, then passes out for a few hours. Then back at it.
Play style - Wrestles and rolls with the dogs. Not into fetch. Loves chasing and being chased.
Bad habits - Howls for attention and jumps up when too excited. Prone to separation anxiety (we've been working on it)
Redeeming qualities - Most affectionate dog I've ever met
Best feature - She sleeps on her back and it's adorable
What Foster Mom wants you to know -
Bianca is goofy and loveable. She loves dogs, cats, and kids and is very gentle. She can be timid at first but as soon as she comes out of her shell she's very excitable and wants to be your best friend. She's extremely smart and a quick learner. Perfect family dog who just needs some extra attention.
