LOCATION: Brownsburg, Indiana DOB: 03/29/18 (estimate) Stormy is a snuggly, loving, and amazing dog! She loves her people so much! She loves to splash in the water, and she loves her doggy pool! She is the best cuddler, and now that she is more comfortable at home she has become quite the couch potato. She loves to be in a bed or on the couch, but she definitely prefers to be in bed! She will need lots of time and patience to adjust to her new home and new people (she warms up more quickly to women), but once she gains your trust, she'll be inseparable! Stormy will do well with older children (12 years and older) who will respect her need for space and patience as she adjusts. She does need time to warm up to strangers, especially men, but comes around quickly after learning that they aren't going to hurt her. Stormy loves to go on walks even if it is cold outside. She has done well with her leash, crate, and muzzle training. Due to her very tough past, she does have separation anxiety, and is protective over her resources - especially food. She will need a strong, patient owner who will continue to work with her. She does fantastic in the car, and she loves to go get pup cups. She also loves to do enrichment activities that help her with her anxiety such as her lick mat and topple. She is a lap dog who always wants to cuddle and give you lots of kisses. She loves to play with her foster family's other dogs outside, but she takes a while to warm up to other animals inside. She would do best in a home without cats, and her future family should be aware that she is dog selective and will need careful introductions (again, she struggles more indoors). Because of her sad history of being attacked by other dogs, she can be reactive to other animals and is not a dog park dog. Stormy would be best in a home with larger dogs only, even better if they are bigger than her and she can't physically boss them around. She does not like to go outside very often and she is terrified of being left outside, so her foster family always go outside with her for comfort. She especially has trouble going outside when it is hot. Quite possibly, she had lived her life outdoors in Texas and was not able to escape the heat, so now the outdoors and heat give her pause, but her nice and cool doggie pool definitely makes that better and a lot more fun for her. Stormy is learning how to play with toys and is getting better at playing catch outside. She loves to explore and do her zoomies! She is a great listener and knows basic commands (sit, stay, come, no). She is also fully housebroken. She is still learning manners, but she is the happiest and most loving girl! She enjoys her calming chews, and she is great at taking her medication. She can be out in the house by herself as she is not destructive at all (unless she has access to food or trash). Although she had a rough past, she is the sweetest and happiest girl (especially when she wakes up in the morning)! She deserves to be soooo spoiled! If you are that special person that is willing to put in the time and patience, you will get so much more in return from Stormy! ========================= To apply to adopt me, please fill out the application form! https://form.jotform.com/51994996709176 .
