Meet Sierra! Miss Sierra is a 50lb Plott Hound/Pitty mix and is full grown since she’s around two years old. She loves giving kisses and showing her humans how amazing she thinks they are!

Looking for a crate trained pup? Look no further! Toss basically any treat, toy or food inside and she’ll follow it seamlessly. When meeting new people, she is quite confident – trotting right up and introducing herself, happy to receive any and all the love she can. So far there’s nothing that she seems to scare her as she takes each day with a go-get-‘em attitude. Always looking for something to do, Sierra entertains herself with raw hides, Kongs, bones, but her favorite is going on runs with Foster Dad.

Getting Sierra exercised is a must. She would do best in a home with a fenced in yard or with a family who exercises daily, with their dog. While she walks in circles on a leash, she is surprisingly a great running partner, staying by Foster Dad’s side. An intense game of fetch will also help to relieve some of her energy, mixed in with some good mental stimulation as well. While she does get along with other dogs, soft introductions are required and she isn’t your dog-park dog. As a vocal player and a high energy pup, she needs another canine who can match her energy level. It doesn’t take very long for her to feel comfortable with her new buddies and then they will just play and play and play!

With the right combination of exercise, Sierra can be an independent gal. Yes, she is more than happy to receive affection but she isn’t overly demanding. Even though she isn’t fully housebroken, she’s nearly got the hang of it. There aren’t any interruptions at night and her crate stays clean during the day. When she is getting the run of the house, however, she has the occasional slip up. We’re still working on figuring out her signal but are confident she’ll have it down in no time!

If you’re looking for a furry friend who can play a mad game of fetch, sprinting like a lazerbeam across fields after any ball or frisbee, boom. You found her. Not to mention the 4ft. vertical with a successful catch midair! Jordan ain’t got nothing on Sierra! Once she accomplishes her housebreaking (and that shouldn’t take too long, she’s already improving!), she’ll be the perfect energizer bunny for the active household!
