From the Foster:

Freya is one gorgeous, happy dog! She is also extremely curious – in our home currently, she follows us everywhere. She is what some might call a stage five clinger  . She has quite a bit of energy for a dog her age. She wants sooooo bad for the resident dog to play with her (unfortunately it’s not working out in Freya’s favor  ). It would be spectacular (but not absolutely necessary) if she could have another energetic dog in the household. She has learned to entertain herself fairly well (assuming humans aren’t doing anything even somewhat interesting) by throwing her squeaky toy around and chasing it. We will throw it for her, and she will go after it, but good luck getting it back  .

She also currently resides with a cat, for which she is curious. They have had limited interactions so far, so it’s hard to label her as cat friendly. I suspect that she wants to play with the cat (cat is not a fan). Fortunately, she does respond to redirection really well.

She is fully potty trained (not even one accident!), and while she behaves well in her kennel, she doesn’t love it. She has chewed on some socks and a shirt that had been lying around, but otherwise hasn’t been destructive. She has not, however, been left alone in the home.

She is NOT leash trained. She pulls a bit, and she is also extremely disorganized on her leash – moving every which way, including making circles around you. She seems like she would be trainable, but she is distracted easily and has made it a bit more challenging. With her energy level and lack of leash training, having a fenced in yard would be ideal for her.

We are still learning about her as she adjusts to her life here in MN and will update as we know more.
