Meet Phoebe who came into rescue about 3 weeks ago. Please read her bio and if you think you are the perfect family for please complete our online adoption application. Phoebe is a farm dog at heart! Early to rise, and enjoys hunting the yard. There’s not a bird, striped gopher, or rabbit that goes unchased! She’s is learning some basic manners but the garbage can is irresistible! She is so smart. The other dogs don’t know what to do when the weight is on the lid but phoebe just takes the whole trash can out; by passing the invisible force field the weight has for the other dogs. We are really working on “come” at the moment she seams to have selective hearing at times. We took the e collar off, it was starting to do the opposite when she would hear the tone. Instead of coming when called she would run away to cower out of fear for the shock. She is very food motivated so we switched gears and are working with small “treats”. Phoebe loves the yard and being outside. She is having fun with all the rodents the country has to offer. She actually caught two song birds Monday. Sad day for the birds but Phoebe was sure proud of herself. Phoebe adores attention. She is best behaved when her love meter is full. She does have separation anxiety. Even leaving to walk to get the mail causes shear panic. At night she sleeps next to the bed. And when we leave to work she has to be kenneled. She doesn’t like it but she does stay in it with out problems. She has learned her place with the other dogs and no longer lunges for food until it’s her dish. Phoebe would do best in a home with no other dogs and wild children but can coexist with them with proper training, observation and behavior management. Phoebe has shown some farm dog behaviors such as herding and controlling herd movement. We are working on her biological alarm clock. 3:00 am is not ideal. And then neither is 5 am. She does go back to bed after her quick early morning potty break. Phoebe has so much potential. She will make a great dog for the right person(s) I’m confident she will learn fast in her forever home. When the right person who is willing to work on her flaws and give her as much love as possible comes!
