Stormy urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
After several months of training and medication, my dog still cannot be left alone in her crate due to anxiety. I have to travel for work in two weeks and although I have arranged a pet sitter for her daily, she cannot be in the crate in between visits. I am trying to avoid rehoming her so am looking for someone from July 28th through August 26th.
How long is fostering needed for?
A few weeks
Stormy is super sweet and everyone that meets her loves her. She walks very well on her leash and loves her walks. She’s not a fan of this super-hot weather but still likes to go out. While out, she notices bunnies, squirrels and other dogs but doesn’t react by barking or going after them. She will however chase them in the yard if she has the opportunity. When walking her command is “leave it” and that generally gets her back in focus. In addition to her, I have an 85 pound senior boxer and they walk well together. She is currently about 11 months old so is still working on some of her manners and skills. When she meets new people or people come to visit, she tends to jump up forgetting her “off” command. She will need some supervision when playing with her toys ; so far I have not found anything that she cannot destructible and swallowing items that she’s chewed is a definite nono. In place of chew toys, I keep a supply of bones for here. I refill them with treats, peanut butter, etc. If they are frozen, even better.
She is definitely a shadow and will want to be wherever I am.
She has been around children of all ages including my 6-year-old grandson and his soccer team and camp friends and loves them. She is extremely gentle when it comes to taking treats and eats her breakfast and dinner with my other pup. They share a water bowl and there has never been any food or toy disputes. She has also attended doggy daycare where I am told she got along well with the all the other pups. For dogs that were super laid back however, she did try to stop them from playing with others by getting in between them and other playmates. The only negative interaction I have seen is with my neighbor’s dog that has a tendency to rush our fence, growl at her and bite at her through the slats. She does growl back and needs to be removed from the situation.
