*Foster Notes* 10/19/17 "Notes... Sally doesn't dig, chew, or scratch inappropriately-- your shoes are safe with her, she's completely house trained, she's very quick to learn. It only took a couple of days to get her
doing a solid sit/stay before going in or out a door. She does love walks but the rest of the time she is SUPER lazy, Sally is 100% certain that she belongs on the sofa, and given the opportunity will spend most of the day sleeping on the sofa. Reactions to dogs have been mixed. She met my trainer's dogs in a
controlled environment and did very well. She also did well with a
chihuahua at a pet store. But she did overreact to a couple of dogs
while out on walks. Not aggressive but more like she was so anxious to
check out the situation that she got overworked. My trainer (Martina
Contreras) believes she just wasn't socialized with other dogs and so
doesn't know how to interpret their behavior.
She's been fine with people she's met, but she has barked at people in
the neighbor's yard. She took to my husband immediately. She was a little jumpy (easy to startle) the first couple of hours here, but after that has become very mellow. She seems fine left alone. The longest she's been alone this week is
about 45 minutes. Mostly if I go out for a short errand she's just sleeping on the couch when I get back. She's been eating grass frequently. No vomiting though. She had a shower and did fine. Didn't love it but didn't fight it either. She rides very well in the car.
All in all she's just been really great, very low maintenance, just
needs some work on dog reactivity."
Sally is a very happy and social girl with those that she knows and trusts, but can be fearful of being approached by strange men on the street and in the home. She has made close male friends during her stay at the sanctuary, but could possibly be a little reactive in a more hectic environment or with a man whom she did not take to. She truly is a sweet and loving dog, but because she does have some fear issues, we are looking for a rural, predictable and adult only home for her. Sally gets along well with friendly male dogs but does not get along well with females
No kitties for Sally please. Sally is a highly bonding girl, who connects with woman faster then men and can become possessive over them. Once you know this beautiful girl it is hard to believe that she is anything but a wiggly, lovely dog and in the right home she will shine! Please do note that she IS a hound and has the voice to prove it. She is waiting for her forever family or person to find her.
