Age: 2 years old
Apple is a 2 1/2 and a real sweet affectionate girl.
She adores humans and will do anything for kisses, cuddles and affection. She easily bonds to whoever she is with and has loved her current foster Dad and a few other foster carers that have had her over a weekend and spent time with her. She loves to give cuddles, especially if you sit down, watch out you are fair game!
Apple walks well on lead, no pulling and is polite and listens well. She likes her own space and not to be rushed up to in the face especially by other dogs. If this happens she will give a little grumble and then get over it. She herself though happily goes up to and approaches other dogs first and has no issue with size or breed of other dogs at all. She just wants to be the boss we think and them to not bother her too much.
Poor Apple has had a sore foot in her past thanks to a spider bite. This being said long walks or too much standing about will need to be monitored as although she doesn’t complain and it is healed that foot can fatigue and still needs some time.
She does like to play with toys and has a good appetite and will run about and play excitedly with her humans and other dogs she is used to in the home and gotten to know. Apple even surprised one of our volunteers that had her for the weekend by using the doggy door all on her own with no encouragement or lessons!
We think Apple is best suited to an older child home as she is a very enthusiastic dog when she greets you and wants to interact. She loves a kiss, lick and nibble. All in love but younger children may find this too much.
A home with a partime worker or someone home more would be suited to Apple. She would be very sad being left alone all day. She could also do ok with a fur sibling if they were the right nature with each other and had some monitored introductions to start as they worked out the dynamic.
