Izzy eats twice a day and in under a minute. Because of this, and some aggressive tendencies when food is involved, she and her 8-year-old foster brother are separated during mealtime. We set her food down in front of her and tell her to wait and she will not go for her bowl until she’s given the command to do so.She spends most days on the lap of her foster mom while she is at work but when she gets home, life is ALL ABOUT THE BALL She will play fetch for as long as you will throw it and usually needs mandated ball breaks implemented by her foster parents!
She is still working on her potty training and occasionally has accidents in the house (#1 only). She has not mastered signaling when she needs to tinkle but about 30 minutes after she eats, she will be ready to 💩 . She will poop almost every time she goes out, even if she doesn’t really have to.
She is extremely sweet and loving and enjoys a good snuggle. However, she is a puppy and can be a little mouthy during playtime. If you tell her to be sweet or say kisses those teething nips will turn into licks, for that reason she would not do well with families with young children that are 8 and under.
Izzy hears the commands leave-it and drop-it quite often as she likes to eat everything in sight… especially the fall leaves 🍃 but even fuzz she finds on the floor; she doesn’t not discriminate. Her new family will need to be very vigilant with her while working through this bad habit.
She is GREAT in the car and will make an excellent road dog!
Izzy loves to explore, and we are continuing to work on her pulling when on leash. She is usually very timid when approached/approaching other dogs she meets when out for walks but once she has the proper introduction, she’s ready play!
