Learning House Breaking! 

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And when the going gets tough… the tough make lemonade” – Josie and Melody, Josie and the Pussycats

Introducing Josie! Josie is a 10-month-old puppy (and sister of Winnie and Abby) weighing in at 35 pounds, but she’s likely to get up to 50 pounds when she’s fully grown.

Josie is learning housebreaking and crate training, but she is making so much progress! Josie is almost all the way housebroken, and she hasn’t had an accident in the house since her first day there. When she goes outside, she goes to the bathroom right away and sets a great example for her sister. In the crate, Josie is a champ. She’ll go in the crate voluntarily for a treat, and she doesn’t complain once she’s in there. Our girl is happy wherever she finds herself!

She is dog friendly, and loves to play with Winnie and her foster family’s other dogs. She’s been hanging around both male and female dogs, young and old, and she gets along well with all of them. Josie is curious about the world around her and loves to be the brave sister who checks things out for the family.

Josie also loves snuggling with Foster Dad, and although she loves some pets, she isn’t too demanding for attention. She is a bit of a shoe gal… she’s been known to try to sneak one into the crate with her. Josie loves a play session like most puppies do, but she’s pretty laid back for a puppy. 

She has made such great progress in just one week, and we are so excited to see how her transformation continues! Would you like to be a part of this sweet girl’s story? Contact us  today!
