My name is Abby and I am about 2 1/2 years old. I am a very intelligent and playful girl with a lot of energy. I like to play with all sorts of toys and to put all things that I discover into my mouth to see what they are. So here is a little update about me:
I may be strong-minded and somewhat stubborn but I do take direction well. In fact, I love to learn! I am getting so good at listening to my foster dad! I can be very excitable, after all, I still have a lot of puppy in me but I am learning to listen to him and settle down. I am a bit hesitant with new people but I warm up quickly and I ride ever so nicely in the car. I am a very smart girl and I just want to learn and grow. I am learning and growing all of the time.
The truth is, I do not want to run a household. I want to grow up to be a confident well trained, well-adjusted girl who pleases her family. I want an owner who understands the needs of the adolescent and has the patience, confidence and intelligence to train me properly. I will make them so proud if given a chance.
My foster dad says I am very good in letting a groomer trim my nails. I do not fence fight with neighbor dogs and I have learned to sit and wait patiently before being let outside to play. He has also worked with me on crate training and potty training and I am doing so well!
When I am playing with my foster brother I often forget that I am a little bigger than he is so I do best in a home with dogs close to my own size. If you own a cat please do not apply for me
My future family must:
– Be experienced with young Dobies/working dogs. Recent experience, not something that happened 20 years ago.
– Be patient, confident, consistent and very willing to take me to class or work with the proper trainer.
-No children under 12.
