Hi, my name is Fox River AKA Zucchini. I am a sweet little girl that is learning so very much from my wonderful foster mom.
I would do best in a home with children over 12 and in a suburban setting where I can spend some time in my own yard, and roam around in a quiet atmosphere.
- 3 years old
- 23 lbs
- crate trained
- knows Sit, Lay Down, Look at Me, Up and Off (as in, jump onto this surface, jump back down), and has been working on Wait (stay), Come, Crawl, Enough (stop barking at the door), and Heel. She learned these commands using Clicker training, and she's very treat-motivated and eager to learn. She has a harder time with commands outdoors where she is most anxious, but she does her best to listen.
- good with other dogs
- mostly snoozes during the day, and the more soft blankets to snuggle in, the better. She LOVES to be tucked in and wrapped up in blankets. She's a cuddle bug and is never happier than when snuggled up close to her humans.
- extremely well-behaved indoors. She doesn't get into things, she never chews things she's not supposed to, she almost always ignores people-food and can sit right next to you while you're having a snack without begging or bothering you, she's never had an accident indoors, and she's not at all destructive. She LOVES toys that involve problem-solving, like a treat ball, kibble-packed kong, or a snuffle mat to work on. She does not show interest in tug toys, chew toys, or balls unless they are edible in some way.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
