From the Foster:
Trixie comes with a number of medical issues, be sure to read below her bio!!!
Trixie is a very sweet, calm, quiet dog. She needs a home without small
children that’s calm and quiet. Not a lot of activity as she’s easily scared and
She likes to be in the same room her human is in, but she also likes her
space. She’s not very cuddly, and is not much of a lap dog. She’s come a long
way in the year that I’ve had her and she’ll usually greet new people fairly
soon after meeting them. But she’s still pretty timid and wary of new situations
and people. Her forever family needs to be prepared for it to take a long time
for her to feel comfortable with them and to trust them.
Trixie is an older gal, so she’s not too active and sleeps most of the day, but
loves her walks! She walks really well on a leash but likes to take her time to
sniff all the smells. She’s mostly okay passing other dogs, some she wants to
meet, and some she barks and whines at and wants nothing to do with them.
She’s potty trained and even goes to the door to ring the bell when she wants
to go out. The only times she’s had accidents in the house is when I was too
slow to notice she wanted out. She also rides well in the car.
Trixie is not crate trained, but she doesn’t need to be. She’s very good when
left alone to roam free. She also likes to sleep with her human at night.
Trixie does okay with other dogs and tolerates them/coexists with them. She
does resource guard when food is around so she has to be fed separately
from other dogs, and also have treats handed directly to her. They can’t be
loose on the ground. Trixie doesn’t play with other dogs or toys, or chew on
bones, and if the other dog is too young and playful, she will let them know
she’s had enough with a snap and a bark. I think Trixie might really like to be
an only dog.
She’s very food motivated, loves carrots, and is super smart. She loves and
looks forward to training time.
If you’re looking for an easy going, quiet dog that likes to be near you but not
on top of you, and is somewhat aloof, then Trixie is your girl.
