From the Foster:
Rose LOVES to cuddle and will be your shadow. She’s content to lay down on her own while you’re doing things, but if you get up and move she’ll be right there by your side. She is obsessed with belly rubs and ear scratches and will sleep right next to you. Rose deserves a forever home where she will be allowed to sleep in the bed and lay on the couch with the family members/owner. She wouldn’t do well sleeping on her own bed from what I can tell. She wouldn’t whine but would likely keep jumping up. To be fair, we haven’t said no to her doing this though :)
Rose is doing really good with going to the bathroom outside- we are making sure to let her out a lot though- I work from home a couple days a week so it has been easier. She has had 3 accidents only. The small periods of time she’s been in her crate she has seemed okay- no torn up blankets or accidents.
She can play a mean game of fetch with a tennis ball and seems to have little bursts of playful energy and then she just relaxes and naps or hangs out. She is VERY interested in people food and we need to remind her to not jump up to counters or tables, but she listens fairly well and does it less and less.
She has tried to chew a couple things and would need to be watched on that front- we usually direct her to a toy right away and she’s totally fine.
We have a 5 and 7 year old and they lay all over her, cuddle her and pet her everywhere and she is completely good with it. She tolerates (and LOVES) them being all over her. I would say that toddlers may not be good- NOT because she is mean but she is solid muscle and her playful leaps can knock them over. She loves to lick faces too, and again, it is very playful- but her open mouth kisses can cause her teeth to graze your face, so it could be scary for a toddler.
She is learning how to walk on a leash- she zigs and zags a lot but enjoys walks and is clearly interested in her new surroundings. She has seemed only slightly more scared of males but only for a minute or two- she’s really friendly to everyone she has met here.
So far she hasn’t barked much- just little ones now and then. The neighbors behind us have a big dog who ran out barking at her through our fence and she just got in a playful pose and did a tiny yip and then I was able to direct her away back to her game of fetch.
From these few days I think the best home would have people willing to cuddle, ideally not have her crated for long times, and have patience to help her learn some basic obedience which I think will come quickly as she’s already learning it here.
