Sissy is a sweet low rider bassett/doxie mix of 30 pounds. She came from an abusive home and is shy when first meeting new people and in new situations, but is willing to be courageous. She is very timid around men and will need to be treated with love and patience in that regard. It is better to embrace that situation than to avoid it, so a home with understanding males is welcome. She has a fair amount of energy and is good with other dogs once properly introduced. Loves to play, loves to run. She is good on lead and loves to ride in the car. Snuggles with the best of them. She is a shredder so no blankets in the crate please. Sissy does know sit, has a great recall and needs work on down. She can be stubborn at times, but a little food reward can work wonders. Crate trained, housebroken and uses the doggy door. Has a good amount of ball drive. Has not made a motion towards water. Great all-around companion dog, great hiking or biking companion. Not a backyard ornament. Will need an adopter who is willing to further her manners and take her to obedience classes and socialize her more, especially with men. Sissy promises to be a loyal loving family member. She is fostered at the farm in Bradenton. Fenced yard is a must, and so are other good natured dogs.
