Needs: fenced-in yard and mentor dog
My name is Cara and I’m 7-years old.
I have two very favorite ways to spend my time. One, I enjoy the companionship of my furry foster sisters. I follow them around inside the house and out. Living in a house every day with a family is new to me, so I often step back and watch them so I can learn the ways of the world! Two, I love going for walks. Foster mom’s proud ‘cause I walk nicely on a leash! I’m happy to walk either with or without my sisters. Foster mom walks us in the mornings and in the evenings. I get to greet the neighbors—oh, and sometimes I attempt to chase squirrels.
You might like to know that I’m housebroken. And, I know the commands, “come” and “follow.” We’re working on more, and treats are a great encouragement!
I’ve become quite happy being inside the house. Most of the time now I take naps sprawled out on the floor in the family room with my sisters. Confined spaces can make me feel uncomfortable, but I have taken naps in an open crate in the family room too. Foster mom leaves the three of us on our own on the main floor when she leaves the house. No issues there! I even go upstairs with everyone now and take the stairs like a champ! I sleep up upstairs with my foster parents and my sisters. I like to sleep on a memory foam mat ‘cause I’m not a big fan of actual dog beds.
I am a fan of people though! I love getting attention and being petted and touched. I am quite familiar with the tactic of pushing my head into people’s hands to encourage more engagement.
I’m not a fan at all of getting into a car. What are these things? Foster mom has tried and tried but can’t get me closer than 3-4 feet of a car. Even my sisters’ examples of going in and out of cars doesn’t faze me. I back up, pull, and try to run. Foster mom’s wondering if it’s because of my dislike of confined spaces that’s scaring me away. All I know is they look dark inside and are off the ground. I don’t understand it, so am not enthused.
I am enthused about this big, wonderful world, the loving touch of people, and my doggie sisters. And I would absolutely be enthusiastic if I found my forever home.
