- Angel is an athletic and intelligent girl. She excels at Scent Training and is enjoying time learning Rally-O, Agility and Flyball.
- She enjoys opportunities to hang out with her people, go for long leashed walks and LOVES fetch!
- Walks nicely on leash, takes good verbal cues, and greets people politely.
- Very well behaved indoors and loves to snuggle on the couch, but the outside world can sometimes be a little bit much for her. She does not always know how to cope with loud or stressful situations, getting overstimulated and may channel her stress by spinning, barking or chasing things.
- May exhibit some reactivity to other dogs while behind a fence, but rarely reacts on leash, especially if she’s content, and busy.
- Bonds strongly with her people and rewards their efforts with love, loyalty and trust.
- Angel’s energy level is moderate to high and would benefit from a family that can consistently commit to an exercise and training regiment.
- Angel would be a good fit for a home with one or more adults. She could possibly do well in a home with dog-savvy kids around 12 years or older.
- Needs boundaries and ample outlets for her energy and smarts. Angel would benefit greatly from classes in any canine sport which will also strengthen the bond with her person.
- Angel does exhibit prey drive; squirrels and birds catch her attention quickly. To that end, she needs to live in a home without cats, other small animals or young children. Her new family would need to recognize the things that stimulate Angel, resulting in her drive escalating, and understand when it’s time to remove her from the situation.
- A fenced yard is a must. Given her natural curiosity and drive, she would need a secure space to be off-leash at home.
- Angel is not a dog-park dog and is not well-suited to large social gatherings off leash. She is a very sweet and bright girl that would excel in a quiet, routine environment where she can be leash walked daily, with an opportunity to run without other dogs, and to explore, learn and play interactive games.
