About Toska

Adoption Fee: $50
Australian Cattle Dog / Vizsla
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

For your adoption consideration, I present the world's best wiggle butt, the love of my life, my Toska. For her FULL and detailed write up, please see: �'ۢ Name: Toska. But will also respond to: Tee-bee, T-Boogie, T, Iced T, T Station, and Teebz- amongst other nicknames. �'ۢ Breed/Age: Tentatively her birthday is October 24, 2020 (but who really knows with rescue babies). I adopted her Dec, 31, 2020 from a southern dog rescue. According to her DNA results, she is level 2 ACD (40-60%), level 4 (10-25%) vizsla and american staffy ( and is about 55lbs. �'ۢ Needs: She *must* be an only dog. She has lived peacefully with a group of three other dogs for 3 years, but due to recent events, she needs to be the only dog in the household. With her current large pack dynamic, her anxiety and reactivity is too heightened and causes her to lash out at our submissive dog. This environment is stressing her out - and so she will need to be the only family dog. I would strongly prefer a fenced in yard, but I am willing to discuss options for her exercise. A low traffic household is the best option in order for her to thrive. �'ۢ Kids/Pets: She has never interacted with small children or other pets. Due to her breed disposition and prey drive, I will *not* place her in a home with small roaming pets like cats, or with small children who run around wildly. �'ۢ The good, the bad, and the ugly: T-Bee is so full of love - but also so full of anxiety and fear-based reactivity. When inside or in her fenced yard, she will bark extensively at people in the driveway or front yard - but when directly presented with a stranger, will tuck her tail and refuse to approach. Similarly on leash, she will bark when there is a strange dog or human at a distance. It has been suggested that she start Prozac because of her current anxiety in the household. However, with the proper household dynamic this may not be necessary (I highly suggest using your judgement and your vet's advice as things shake out - but it has recently been suggested as a tool for her anxiety). Teebs is a crate trained pup who loves her crate comfort zone. She knows 'crate up' and will do so reliably every time (she enjoys getting a toy or kong in there with her - but it's not necessary). She will gladly put herself to bed once she gets used to your bedtime routine and will sleep quietly and peacefully for the entire night (8 hours min, but if you're feeling sleepy, she'll definitely stay in there for 10 hours). She loves to lay on the bed before bedtime - and will always be down to lay on the couch with you for some netflix. When you are out of the house, she can stay uncrated, or crated. The only issues I've had when she isn't crated, is that she's chewed on my couch pillows/cushions. She doesn't counter surf, chew wooden furniture, have accidents (unless of course her tummy is upset), etc. If you feel like taking her for a car ride - she loves that! She sits well in the car, and will also wait patiently for a reasonable amount of time while you're inside of a store - she has never been destructive while waiting. She doesn't love to eat while in the car (so save those Dunkin Donuts drive thru munchkins for her to eat at home!). I am wary about having the window down excessively - she LOVES sticking her snoot out the window, but will get a little overzealous in how far out she wants to be and makes me nervous. She eats twice a day - but never clamors for her meals and will never wake you up or bother you for her meals. Prior to living with a food motivated dog, she and her sisters would free feed. She enjoys taking her time with eating and is not the kind of dog who will gobble up her food. She will not resource guard her food (or toys or treats or anything else) with her humans. She has a strong stomach and has never had issues with switching dog foods. She is very familiar with eating table scraps/leftovers and always enjoys a little variety in her food! She is so, so, SO smart. She is clicker trained and I have taught her or started working on things like: sit, lay down, spin, up/off (getting on or off chairs/objects/etc), bow, snoot (putting her nose through my hands in a circle), t-rex! (a form of 'sit pretty'), touch (touching my hand for attention/focus), wait (used to have her sit at the door and be allowed to go out versus full speed blasting out the door), leave it, look (make eye contact for attention), high five/paw, crate up, center, and coming when called (this recall is NOT reliable and should never be done unless in a fenced in personal yard or a long leash). She learns well with tiny pieces of hot dogs paired with her clicker and new tricks so she won't be bored. She loves water! She'll pop her head into the shower sometimes to say hello, and will gladly climb into the tu
