Blossom is a 1 yo (DOB: 9/20/19), friendly, playful, active 35lb girl. She looks and acts like a Jack Russell mix but according to the person we were keeping her for - she had a DNA test and is a Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel, Pomeranian, and Pit Bull mix. She is house-trained, spayed, and up-to-date on shots. She knows sit and is learning stay, turn around, up, and lay down. She can be shy for the first minute but is friendly with every person and dog we meet. We are working on her leash skills (she had never been on a leash before us and was allowed to just run free around the neighborhood). While on the leash, she wants to play with all the dogs she passes and gets frustrated when she can’t, and she loves to chase anything that moves (squirrels, cats, toads, bugs). She LOVES to play fetch and is great about bringing you the toy to throw back. We are working on crate training. She goes in with a treat without any issue and most of the time just sleeps but will cry at times without any specific identifiable trigger. She is not quite used to small children (she sniffs and runs away when we encounter them) and can be jumpy and mouthy at times so a home with older children (10 yo and up or if really dog-savvy kiddos maybe 7 yo and up) and/or adults would be best. She would do great with another playful dog (or 2) as well. A family that is active is ideal. She does sleep through the night but would play all day, no naps if it were up to her. I take her on short runs with me, and she does really well with those. Despite her energy, she does like to cuddle especially at night, and will even poke her nose at your covers until you let her under them! A big yard where she can chase balls all day would be a huge plus! Given the circumstances, someone who is willing to keep in touch and share photos/updates from time to time would be the absolute best situation, but we understand that may not be a possibility.
