From the Foster:
Braille is a very special dog, she is the sweetest, biggest lap dog ever. Shes amazingly trusting in her people and bonds strongly. She LOVES her doggy friends of all sizes but can be a bit much for smaller dogs because of her big size. She also loves all people but again, because of her big goofy self she may knock littles over because she cant see or hear where they are.
She wears a harness and will lean into you and trust you to guide her by her harness. She learns the layout to new places pretty quickly but can take a bit to settle in and learn the new routine and lay of the land. Shes working to understand what's toys and what's not, because she cant see she sometimes uses inappropriate things to chew or play with, her forever home will need to do very good puppy proofing and ensuring a safe environment for Braille.
Braille is working hard to learn some touch commands and is working on potty and crate training.
She has some vision of one eye but its limited and she is deaf so she needs certain things in her forever home, Braille needs :
-A doggy friend OR someone who is home most of the time and will leave her only for very short periods of time. She has severe crate anxiety that we are working on but cannot currently be crated without hurting herself in an attempt to escape so she must be left in a comfortable and SAFE room where her anxiety is less, preferably with a confident friendly dog friend. We will discuss this more thoroughly with any potential adopters.
-Any dog friends need to be patient and very dog friendly because it takes a bit for Braille and a new dog to learn to communicate any new dogs need to be patient while they learn each other since she cant hear or see their ques well. She enjoys playing with our resident dogs and gets confidence in following them around and their presence.
-She prefers a fenced in yard to safely romp and play in and potty trains better with a fenced area, it isnt necessary but very much preferred.
-Braille is working to learn stairs but sent home needs to be willing to gate them off and help her continue to learn to navigate them, she can successfully go up but is working to learn how to navigate down which is scary for her right now.
-Someone being patient and working with her picky food habits, she's a big girl who needs a lot of food but is picky about only eating certain dog foods at certain times and with her people standing close by.
- She needs someone who will be patient and help her continue to grow with her confidence, touch commands and crate / potty training and love her the way she is. She is SO worth the extra little bit of care and really isnt much different than having a "normal" dog. She bonds strongly and gives so much love and affection you can just feel her love for people from across the room
