Vivi is 7 months old (approx. DOB 10-10-19), female, 33 lbs, vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped. Vivi was found homeless in NC and ended up at the shelter! The shelter staff said she is a little shy at first, is good with other dogs, does not exhibit a prey drive (so may be good with cats), has medium energy, loves people, loves attention, is crate trained, is good on a leash, clean in her kennel (may be potty trained), and craves attention. Vivi is an expressive girl so leaving her alone in an apartment might not be a fit; and she LOVES her food – very treated motivated which is great for training. Vivi is still a puppy so her ideal home should be ready to train!
Per her new Vermont foster:
Vivi is very laid back and well mannered. She loves to lounge around the house, go for walks and play with the kids and her foster sibling. And she thinks stretching out in the grass is the best thing ever!
Vivi exhibits a prey drive so she is mouthy (expressive with her mouth); she could have some type of herding breed in her (ie: border collie) so she will need to work on that and would be best in a home with older kids, has low-medium energy, and loves chew toys. Vivi does love to cuddle with people and lay on furniture. If you sit on the floor, she will crawl in your lap right away. She likes to be near people. She is very treat motivated and loves squeaker toys. She does need a lot of reminders about not jumping up on people and can jump very high from the ground. She is good with the foster’s dog savvy cat (probably not a cat that would run), is crate trained, potty trained. Vivi would do best in a home with another similar sized dog that likes to play; she gets very excited to meet other dogs so not fun for laid back dogs. Stay tuned for more information as Vivi is a new rescue!
