Anya is a very playful girl who loves to go for walks and snuggle with her people.
It does take her a little time to warm up to new people and other dogs, so a loving, patient home is a must. Anya would do best in a single dog home. If there is another dog in the home, a submissive male would best. Slow introductions should occur.
Anya is very treat-motivated, and knows the basic commands of sit, stay and down (of course treats will help her learn new commands!). She walks well on the leash with a gentle leader and is potty trained and crate trained.
Anya has lived with a cat and sometimes chased it, though nothing ever came of it. We suggest a home where if kids are present, they are older and more respectful of her space.
Anya would greatly benefit from a family who understands that she needs continuing socialization training and confidence building. She is currently working with a training company that is helping her to achieve those goals in her foster home. Training support will continue after/when she is adopted to ensure the most smooth and successful transition for her - at a generously discounted rate.
A fully committed owner - like all dogs deserve - to help Anya build trust will be the key to her success and happiness.
