“When you look at the world with beauty in your heart, from wherever your eyes lie, you’ll find beauty.”
– Wendy Shon
Meet Wendy! This beautiful young lady is about 1 year old and weighs in around 45 pounds. After receiving a clean bill of health from the vet, she is ready to find her forever home!
Wendy is a very smart girl and has nearly mastered the art of potty training. Coming from an outdoor-only lifestyle before, she is still learning the ways of life indoors. Whenever her foster dad is home, she is wonderfully behaved and even knows how to signal to him by sitting by the door when it’s time for a bathroom break. She’s not the biggest fan of crate time, especially if her foster dad needs to leave the room. She will quietly protest by whining for a bit at first, but then she settles in for a nap until her foster dad is no longer busy. When it’s time for bed, Wendy will go into her crate on command, maybe first flash you some quick puppy-dog eyes, and then settle in quietly and peacefully for the whole night. In addition to the “crate” command, Wendy also knows “sit”, “stay”, and “leave it.”
Wendy has plenty of playful energy, though she’s not hyperactive, and LOVES playing with other dogs. She hasn’t met a dog yet that she didn’t like, it’s just a question of whether the other dog can match her energy level and enthusiasm. She has a passion for squirrels and would love to chase after them, so a tight leash grip is essential during walks to curtail her excitement while she continues learning proper leash etiquette. Her current exercise routine consists of a daily 2-mile walk with her foster dad, accompanied by a few trips to the backyard during the day for potty breaks and play time. After she’s burned off some energy, then she’s all set to nap until the next adventure.
With people friends, Wendy can be a bit shy at first but then seems to warm up quickly. Slow introductions are best at first, but after that you’ve made a buddy for life. Once she has found her person, she loves snuggling in close and resting her head next to yours for as long as you’ll let her. In terms of feline friends, Wendy would probably do best in a home without them. They’re just too cute and Wendy is just so playful!
Wendy is still pretty new around here and is still working on general manners, such as not jumping on people when she is excited. Other than that, Wendy is just as sweet as she can be and so deserving of her forever home. Are you ready to take on a fun-filled life with sweet Wendy? Contact us today!
