Animal ID: Trixie - agility?  (female)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Fostered in Blakeslee PA. In order to meet our dogs, you must submit an application via this link: http://form.jotform.us/form/41555257797165 --- Trixie is a sweet dog. We haven't seen any aggression from her around humans or dogs in foster care. She sits for her meals and takes treats gently. She loves belly rubs and sleeping in bed with you. Will chase a ball and tear around the yard for a bit but is not crazy hyperactive. She could definitely keep up with an active human. She can be a bit overwhelming in her play with other dogs, so is best suited as the only dog or with a dog that loves to run, run, run because Trixie loves to chase, ... (Read More)chase, chase! That's her favorite game with other dogs...but some dogs don't enjoy being chased so we'd have to get her together with your dog to see if it's a good fit. When you're done playing, she'll settle down for a nap or to chew a toy. Sleeps on our loveseat at night. She has a very soft coat. She needs some work on leash training, but I have walked her fairly easily with a halti-type head harness. When you put the leash on her collar, she pulls a lot. But that can be retrained or you can just get a head harness. She LOVES to go for car rides and is great in the car. She's also housebroken. She does tend to bark at noises, so is not suitable for people who live in apartments, condos, or townhomes. A nice suburban home with a large fenced yard would be more suitable for her. We think she'd also easily adapt to being someone's jogging or hiking partner. Trixie is not suitable for first time adopters. She needs someone who's experienced with working/herding breeds and who's into training, exercise, possibly even agility. If you want a fun-loving dog that loves to learn, and you have time to commit to her, she might be a good fit for you. She is a very sweet dog, but like many working/herding breeds, she is not suitable for everyone. (Less)
