Let’s all welcome Whitney! This Anatolian Shepherd/Pointer mix is only about 44lbs but could probably stand to gain a little more– her ideal weight would be ~50lbs.
So, Whitney is already housebroken. And crate trained. Bam. Now it’s time to adopt her. That’s right folks! The hard part is over – she has no problem sleeping through the night and keeping her crate clean, AND she loves her crate! It’s her safe space 🙂 Oh – did I mention she’s good with cats? She used to live with one and just ignored him, so she’s a very go-with-the-flow gal. She’s also great with children. So, again, have you filled out the application yet?
When it comes to other dogs, Whitney is an interesting gal. She is shy at first and very submissive. As long as it’s soft, easy play, she has a blast! Like playing tug-of-war or keep away. Sharing toys is definitely her idea of fun. Being chased by other pups? Not so much. Whitney probably wouldn’t enjoy the dog park because she isn’t a fan of in-your-face interactions and constant antagonizing. It takes her about a week to warm up and do some light wrestling. Otherwise, she just gets scared, tucks her tail and looks uncomfortable. Once she is comfortable with the new dog or human, she is very kissy and loves showing her affection! Even though she is timid at first, she doesn’t seem to have any over-dramatic fears – the vacuum doesn’t bother her, TV’s are ok, you get it! With the exception of her spazy moments, she’s a moderately energized dog, great for any household!
Whitney is the perfect walking dog. Taking walks everyday is a great way to exercise her. And if you have senior dog that isn’t a huge fan of playing, she’d be the perfect addition since she prefers her humans to play with her instead! None of that pestering to makes the original dog of the house upset. She’s also easily entertained so keeping toys around the house is a good idea. Whitney is a super cuddly pup. Sometimes she insists on being as close to you as possible, nuzzling her nose right up into you! Other times, she’s completely fine with doing her own thing, just hanging out by herself. What’s that? You’re considering adopting her? Well then put in the application!!!
With a little more work on her leash manners, Whitney will fit the mold to any family in no time! All the basics have been checked off her training list, now all she’s looking for is a happy family who can give her the TLC she deserves 😊
