From the Foster:
Sweet Pea is a young pup that lives up to her name, in that she loves snuggling, playing, and loving her humans!
Unfortunately, we've concluded that she would do best in a home without other animals, as she is quite reactive to other dogs, cats, and other small furry creatures.
This little girl has a lot of playful energy left in her, so an active home, or one with a large fenced yard would probably suit her best to get some wiggles out!. She's quickly learned how fetch works, happily chasing down sticks or balls, and loves to run. She's super smart, and loves to learn new tricks. When she's feeling silly, she'll chase her tail or run and jump around like a goofball.
When walking Sweet Pea, using a gentle leader works the best - it helps her not pull as much, and since she is reactive when seeing other dogs it helps keep her concentrated on you and not those pesky dogs! She usually does better towards the end after she's expended some of her energy.
She's gotten better at tolerating her crate, and does fine in it but I would say she wont be happy in a home that needs to crate her for 8 hours every day. She'd prefer a home where she can snuggle with her humans at night instead of being crated.
Sweet Pea is a very good dog, and if you're ready to play with her, and love her, and are ok with her needing to be your one and only best fur friend - she will pay you back ten fold with love!
