BETTY

AVAILABLE

Sex: Female
Birthdate: April 2024

Breed: Husky X Lab
Weight: 12lbs

:Dogs: Friendly but timid. Takes a few days to feel comfortable around them but becomes very friendly & playful. Likes to chase after her foster siblings & be included.

Cats: Seems disinterested even when approached by cats.


Strangers: Very timid of new people, especially women. Will likely need advocating for her in new situations by allowing her to decide whether or not she wants to approach a stranger.

Crate Skills: Well crate trained including no accidents. Her kennel is her safe space, and she goes in and out as she pleases. Will whine for a few minutes when first put in crate.

 

Car: Very good in car, no whining. Likes looking out the closed window.


Leash skills: Walks well on leash and will follow the lead of other dogs or people. She naturally heals, but this could change with age. Doesn't currently pull or bite leash.

Confidence: Confident and likes exploring in familiar places. Can be very timid and shut down when uncomfortable. More confident around men.

Affection: Very timid with people she doesn't know, but becomes more confident approaching or being touched by men. Will freeze or shut down when approached by women.


Training: Likes food, but is not super food motivated.

Best Traits: She's incredibly sweet and friendly when she's in a comfortable setting. She's very gentle for a puppy and plays. and plays well with bigger dogs. She loves lazing on the grass in the sun.

Needs Improvement: Her confidence needs work and is her biggest hurdle. Training in new situations and environments will be tougher, but with other dogs around, she knows her confidence goes up a lot.

HERE'S WHAT BETTY'S FOSTER HAS TO SAY:

She's a beautiful and very sweet dog. So far she is fairly timid and takes things slow, but she gets very excited and has fun interacting with the other dogs in a limited capacity while she heals from her spay. Due to her general timid nature, her best home would likely be with someone who can confidently advocate for her, and who can read a dog's body language to help her grow into a great adult dog.
