Dana is a beautiful 40 pound retriever mix. She was listed as a one year old, and from what the foster parents initially observed, did not appear to have had much structure or guidance. Dana is a smart girl, and so eager to learn and please, which has made her time at the foster home extremely productive and gratifying. Nothing makes Dana happier then to have a job; she's all focus. She is a high energy pup who is up for any adventure and will do best with daily exercise. She loves a good game of fetch, and has been enjoying her daily swims in the river. She can tend to be highly excitable, so working and talking with her in a calming manner is key. With that being said, she has made great progress in calming herself. A good bone, or squeaky toy for her to put her attention has helped. Due to Dana's energy, excitability, and strength levels, her foster parents are not thinking cats or young children are a good match for her at this time. But she has been around some older, respectful, dog savvy children, and just loves the attention. She does very well in her crate, using it at night and when she is left alone. Dana is currently residing with a 9 year old Golden Retriever, and they get along fine. Dana would most likely do best with other dogs who enjoy playing. With lower energy pups, she would need more careful introductions, as not all dogs will appreciate her joyful exuberance! Dana will grab shoes or socks for attention. Dana is working on 'leaving it,' and has made good progress. Dana is an affectionate pup who enjoys a good rub down, snuggle, or belly scratch and who loves the attention that goes with it. Day by day, Dana continues to grow into her full potential. With consistent guidance, boundaries, and direction from a confident leader, Dana will thrive and continue on to be her very best self and a wonderful companion.
