You may have noticed I’ve been listed as in training for a little while. When I arrived at my foster home, the whole world seemed scary and I needed some time to get used to my new surroundings. I’m just a puppy after all and it was overwhelming. My mom gave me plenty of time to adjust, sometimes just sitting near me. Slowly, I realized I was in a safe place and I felt more confident exploring. My foster mom is helping me to socialize with people and other dogs. I absolutely love my foster brother who is also a GSRNE alum. It can be less scary to try new things when he’s around. I’ve learned that walks, especially when I get to sniff everything, are fun and that not all loud noises are bad.
Occasionally, my foster mom has to remind me to slow down a bit. I sometimes get so excited that I forget that chewing on my foster brother’s ears isn’t nice, not all the objects in the home belong to me (but spatulas from the dishwasher can be irresistible!), and I need to have all 4 paws on the floor when greeting someone. I’m starting to learn manners and basic commands. I’m one smart Cookie! Once I get my energy out, I’m happy to cuddle or sleep in my crate.
I’d really like my forever home to be quiet and loving, preferably with a male dog brother to play with. I need a home without young children as they can make me too nervous. My family will need to have patience with me while I adjust to my new home, continue socializing me, and keep up my training so I can be the best girl ever.
