Brazil is an 18-month old spayed female who is current on her vaccines and heartworm negative. She weighs 57 pounds, which is a good weight for her. She is good with dogs and unknown with cats and approved for ages 10 and up. Brazil must go to a home with another dog to show her the ropes and is limited to single family homes. She knows sit and come, is working on other commands, and is okay on the lead. Brazil came to us with an abbreviated tail, but she makes up for it with the cuteness at her front end!
Update from Brazil's foster mom - Oct 5, 2015:
Sweet , shy Brazil continues to come out of her shell. Once she does, she is quite the comedian. She will play bow and wag her little nub. She is starting to learn how to play and has become quite the toy hoarder. She enjoys moving the “inside” toys outside. Brazil is going to need a quiet home without quick movements as they scare her. She needs time to warm up to the humans and once she does, you will be rewarded with laughter. She is fully house trained, crate trained and we are working on the basic commands. She will need patient humans who accept her for who she is – are Brazil’s perfect match. She enjoys her dog bed but, at night she is all about snuggling with her human in the “big” bed.
Update on Brazil -Sept 10, 2015:
Brazil is slowly coming out of her shell. This weekend she learned that she could be a dog! Yup, that is right- a dog, rather than a frozen scared pup. Brazil is a shy little girl waiting for her perfect family. They will need to understand that they need to move slowly with Brazil. She is still shy, but learning every day that humans are okay. Her new family will have to go slow with her and understand that new things still scare her.
She has perfect house manners. She doesn’t touch anything that doesn’t belong to her. She is crate trained. She likes the crate however, foster Mama has been letting her alone in the house and she is perfect. She loves squeaky toys. She also loves to hoard them. ;) One never knows when they may run out. She is “working” on taking treats gently. This has a lot to do with her fear – she just wants to take it and run. She has a great appetite and eats all of her kibble.
She is working on basic commands, but will come into the house with the other dogs when called. She loves to lay on her doggie bed but, at night it is all about the human bed and maybe a little cuddle time with the scary human. She loves chin pets – especially when you are not moving. She loves other dogs. She has started to play with them but, mainly looks at them as a gauge to see if everything is okay.She will need a fenced yard. She has a very sweet disposition and is curious about everything.
