Introducing Sierra! Sierra is a beautiful Plott Hound Mix weighing in at a whopping 60lbs. She’s just over 2 years old and won’t get any larger than that.
Sierra had a rough start when she was adopted from a shelter and returned 30 minutes later, through no fault of her own! The family ended up having allergies and the shelter was full, putting her on death row. ACR snatched her up and now she is blossoming! She is fully housebroken, crate trained, well behaved in the car, and is steadily improving her leash manners. When she needs to go out, she fusses a little and loiters by the door. If she’s in her crate, she’s clean and quiet whether it’s day or night.
Meeting new people is one of Sierra’s favorite things. She’s currently learning to greet people with all four on the floor. She especially loves children and has made friends with kids ages two and up. Other than her over-excited happiness, she’s great! She will do best in a home if the children are old enough to stand their ground. When Sierra meets cats, she is very interested but not aggressive. She currently lives with two older cats but doesn’t interact much with them. If Sierra moves into a home with cats, the proper introductions would be necessary, and some patience would be required.
If you’re looking for an independent gal who is just as happy playing with her humans or her toys and doggy friends, Sierra is your match. Meeting lots of new dogs at once is a bit overwhelming so she is not a good fit for public dog parks. She does great with one-on-one interactions and loves playing with her doggy friends! Wrestling is this lady’s game of choice when her four-legged friends come over. She can be a bit vocal, but it’s all in good fun! Her play partners need to be just as gung-ho as she is or let her do her own thing.
Sierra loves to do whatever her humans are up to. If you’re a runner, she’s a perfect partner. If you’d like to play fetch in the back yard, she’ll fetch tennis balls ALL DAY. If you just want someone to hangout at your feet while you’re cooking dinner or watching Netflix, she’ll happily chill out, too. She’ll even mosey around the house with you like a little shadow while you do chores. She just wants to be included! When she gets the chance to go somewhere, she calmly loads into the car and sits in the backseat with her head out the window.
You can tell Sierra is a super-smart girl with all the things she’s learned – playing more quietly, basic commands like sit and shake, greeting new people. She never says no to affection, even though she isn’t the biggest cuddlebug. With all the bouncing around this poor girl has been through, it’s amazing she has turned out to be the rockstar that she is! All she needs is a family willing to give her a little bit of love every day. Will that family be you?
