Socialization/training:  Bessie loves people and being petted.  She is appropriate meeting other dogs and people.  Is generally a quiet dog but alerts to company arriving at home.  She rides well in the car, likes going to pet friendly places and playing with other dogs. Working on sit, coming when called and waiting patiently for her turn for a treat. Crate trained: Yes, Crated only when foster parents are away from home Leash trained: Yes, Very good on a leash Activity Level: Moderate activity level.  Loves to play with the other dogs, chase a ball or toys Fence: A physical fence is ideal for off leash play and exercise.  Training on an invisible fencing system could be done with the proper support provided.     Behavior:  She is a bit independent during the day.  Tends to spend much of her time outside with the other dogs playing. Likes to be petted and has begun to sleep in her foster parents’ bed. Teaching sit has been a struggle as she gets very excited. Keeping paws off the counter has improved greatly.  Medical History:   Heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, On topical flea/tick monthly, current on all vaccines, & microchipped.     Foster Comments: Bessie is a very sweet natured, loving and playful dog. She loves kids and people, belly rubs ad being with people. Walking on a leash is a pleasure with her. Chewing bones and carrying a toy around is a favorite pastime for her.  Swiping belongings has diminished, but care to keep things picked up is needed.  Or you might have a scavenger hunt for what is missing!  She loves to take toys out the dog door into the yard and run about with them.  Grooming is a breeze with her. She allows her nails to be dremeled and loves to be brushed.  Foster Location:  NY Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training:  Well socialized. Fun happy guy who gets along with everyone Crate trained: Yes; he whines a bit, but does settle down Leash trained: Yes; has a tendency to pull, but this can be corrected Activity Level: Courage is a young, playful Gordon/Irish setter. He will sit calmly with you, but is just as eager to be outside playing and exhibits a strong hunting drive. Fence: If Courage was to be loose, he will need a fence. He has good recall, but given the hunting tendencies he has exhibited, we recommend that he is on a leash unless in an enclosed area. Behavior: Courage is a lovely dog. He will cuddle with you just as much as he wants to play. Courage will follow you from room to room or just enough to know where you are going. He is inquisitive and exuberant, but listens well and is smart. Courage is timid in unknown environments and with new people. With time he becomes comfortable, but stays close to those he knows. We would suggest training as much for general manners, but it would be fun for him and keep him engaged. He responds well to commands and seems eager to learn. Medical History:  No medical history of concern, shots up to date, on heartworm & flea & tick prevention, neutered. Foster Comments: We have enjoyed having Courage as he is looking for his furever home. He interacted appropriately with our 2 other setters and the various people he has met. Since being home with him more often these days we have had a chance to enjoy more of his personality. We call him “dancing dog” because when he gets excited he lifts all his paws up and moves around like he is dancing. He is handsome and would be a wonderful family memeber.

Fava

Female Puppy English Setter (mixed)

ABIN#20- 012  Size/Weight: Fava is a very petite Setter mix.  Color:  White/Tan/Apricot. Medical History:  Fava is healthy and up to date on all vaccinations and preventatives.  She is microchipped and spayed.  Fava originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic.  She was tested right before coming to the USA and her tests were negative, but the parasite can remain dormant for up to 7 years, so her new family must commit to testing her annually for the next 7 years. Socialization:  Fava is the sweetest little girl both with her foster mom and the daily visitor who lets her out over lunch time.   Everything is still new to Fava and new people can make her nervous initially but she does warm up and give them the same love and affection she gives her foster mom. Good with children:  Fava is a little timid when it comes to children.  Foster mom doesn't have children in the home, but Fava's been around a two-year-old on multiple occasions, and while she's a little nervous, she's done okay.  Fast movements by anyone, especially a little one, startle Fava, but she warms up and becomes more trusting.  She would probably do well with children of any age, with appropriate introductions.  Good with dogs:  Fava gets along well with other dogs.  Foster mom doesn't have other dogs, but she's been around a few other dogs while in foster mom's care.  Those dogs were older and haven't exactly played like she'd like.  She is excited by and wants to play with the neighbor dog through the fence.  She spent the first six months of her life attached to her sister, Pinto.  She also did well with the dogs in the transport.  Fava would benefit from a patient doggie mentor, with whom she could play, improve her confidence and learn the ropes of a new home. Good with cats:  Foster home does not have a cat, but when visiting a home with a cat, Fava appeared indifferent. House trained:  Fava is completely house-trained.  As long as she has the ability to take frequent trips outside, she knows that's where to go.  She makes it through the night in her crate, but the longest she's spent in it at one time is probably about 6.5-7 hours.  She's never had an accident in her crate. Crate trained:  Fava sleeps in a crate at night (most of the time) in foster mom's bedroom and spends time in it during the day, as well.  There are times she spends part of the night on foster mom's bed, and she does well there, too.  Fava is okay with being in her crate, but doesn't yet go in without being placed in it. There is minimal fuss once she's in the crate.  She settles in immediately, stirring only when she needs out.  She needs her crate to be in close proximity to her humans in order to be happy in it.     Fence:  Because Fava is still learning to come when called and can be easily startled, a fenced yard would be best for her.  She loves to run around in the fenced yard and feels a sense of security there that she doesn’t have in the unfenced front yard or on walks. Leash trained:  Fava loves to go on walks and gets incredibly excited at the appearance of her harness.  She doesn't pull on the leash, but still roams from side to side as she soaks up the smells.  She gets a little nervous when she comes across bikes, runners, etc., but overall does well on walks.  Behavior:  Fava was shy initially, but now really shows her sweet personality.  She wants to play, and recently taught her foster mom that she LOVES to fetch.  She retrieves her tennis ball and drops it at foster mom's feet, without any training!  She's a smart girl.  Fava enjoys riding in the car and is such a good little passenger.   Once she’s in, she looks out the window, curls up to nap or snuggles up with whoever is in the passenger seat.  She just needs a little help getting in and out.  She likes to be around her humans as much as possible.  Like any puppy, Fava likes to chew, so she just needs to be supervised and provided appropriate chew toys and chews.   She has not been destructive to furniture, even when left alone, but if foster mom isn’t paying attention, she does prefer a shoe or sock to her chew toys. Foster mom has been working on commands sit, down, and stand with Fava.  Foster Comments:  ava is an adorable girl with the sweetest little face.  While she doesn’t have the typical English Setter appearance, she definitely has the English Setter “paw raise” down.   Pictures truly don’t do her petite stature, adorable features, and endearing demeanor justice. The staff at the vet where she was spayed adored her and hated to see her go.  Fava was affectionate nearly immediately, however, it did take her a while to feel comfortable and truly warm up and let loose with foster mom.   She loves to cuddle and give kisses.  Fava is still very much a puppy.  Fava spent the first six months of her life attached to her sister, and she likely misses the connection and interaction, and would benefit from a dog friend that she could chase around.  But she's done well with just foster mom, and would do well in a home without other dogs as long as her humans had plenty of time to spend with her. She likes to fetch and is very playful.  Her favorite pill delivery tool is liverwurst.  She’ll need someone who can be patient with her while she continues to builds confidence and who can teach her that the world is a loving place and not a scary place.  Fava would prefer an owner with a schedule that allows for more time outside of the crate than inside one.  She will be extremely tough to part with, but will provide her forever home with so much love.  They will be so lucky to have her.   Foster location:  Lincoln, NE Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.  If interstate transport is provided for your adopted dog, there will be an additional charge of $50.00 for the required Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (“Health Certificate”).   Typically, we are able to transport your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home. *Dogs can be adopted outside the 1000-mile transport distance; however, adopters must be willing to either fly their adopted dog, drive to a location within the 1000-mile transport range or make independent transport arrangements for their adopted dog.

Finn - Adoption Pending

Male Adult English Setter Pointer (mixed)

Socialization/training:  Still needs work with basic obedience Crate trained: Yes Leash trained: Yes, but still needs work Activity Leve... show more

Socialization/training:  Still needs work with basic obedience Crate trained: Yes Leash trained: Yes, but still needs work Activity Level: Low, especially for a puppy.  A single long walk and some toy play satisfied his daily exercise requirements. Fence: Minimum six foot fence recommended, if allowed off leash Behavior: Finn is timid, especially of men, but gradually warms up. Once a bit more comfortable, his goofy puppy traits start to come out, but he is a very low energy pup. Once comfortable with his people, Finn is a cuddlier who loves attention.  Medical History:      Finn is UTD on vaccinations and microchipped.    Finn was found as a stray and is working on a few health issues that should be cleared up by the time of adoption. He is recovering from skin and ear infections, and being dewormed. Finn is currently 64 pounds, and needs to gain another six pounds to reach his healthy weight. We hope to get him neutered before adoption. Foster Comments: Finn is an absolute sweetheart of a young dog who needs a loving and stable home. He LOVES children, and does very well with my toddler. Though he is a big dog (healthy weight of 70 lbs, shoulder height of 29”), Finn does not knock my son over, and has never demonstrated aggression of any kind. Finn’s low energy is a bit of a surprise for such a young dog. With commitment to a long walk and some enclosed park play time, Finn could be an apartment or townhouse dweller. While Finn will gladly join a person on a run, he has a tendency to weave in front of the human - he needs to work on leash skills but will eventually be a great jogging partner. That said, he doesn’t need more than a long walk a day. Finn is more than happy to curl up at your feet while you watch a movie.  Finn is very timid, especially of men. However, he gradually warms up to people and is affectionate. Finn is a gem of a dog look for the perfect loving home. Foster Location: Alexandria, VA Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Socialization/training: Jack is very nervous around dogs he doesn't know well. He doesn't like letting other dogs sniff his butt, and will often growl at them if they try. He is better about this when he is off leash. On leash, he can be reactive towards other dogs; he barks and lunges.   When he is off leash at the big, wooded dog park in town, he is generally okay with other dogs, and will even let them sniff his butt at times. Positive reinforcement when he doesn't bark or lunge and lots of treats seems to work for him, but he is still working on not reacting to other dogs by barking and lunging.  Good with Children:  Yes, but he needs a calm environment.  Jack guards his toys and his space, so no young children where a child’s toy could be mistaken for a dog toy or actions might be unexpected. Good with Dogs:  Yes, after careful introduction and familiarity.  He is reactive to unknown dogs.  There are 3 dogs in his foster home that he plays with, all setters, one 14-year-old male, one 7 year old female and one 3 year old male. Good with Cats:  Yes- curious, but non aggressive.  He mostly ignores them.  His current foster home has two cats, a four-year-old male and a 12-week-old kitten.  House trained: Yes  Crate trained: Yes  Leash trained: Yes – pulls on leash  Activity Level: Laid back in the house, self exercises outside, likes to lounge on his dog bed or sofa inside. Quiet indoors, likes to play tug with toys with humans and other dogs he knows.  Fence:   Fence required. He loves to RUN and he doesn’t have much recall. Behavior: Loves human attention. Likes to cuddle, be involved with family activities. Playful with our other dogs.  Medical History:   Jack is neutered, UTD on all vaccines, microchipped, and on HWP Foster Comments:  An average day with Jack will include laying around, picking up a toy, romp around, entice one of the other dogs to play tug with him, romp around the house. Go outside and run around. If he is eating and the kitten gets close, he will growl. If he's on his bed or in his kennel, and one of the other dogs or cats comes near, he will growl. He is vocal but not aggressive. If guests come over and the group gets rowdy because the door bell rings, he gets overly excited and starts to bow up and growl at one of the other dogs (dogs will be dogs). Jack is a really smart dog, and he's always looking to please his people. He picks up new tricks very quickly, and remembers them whenever he's inside. He's more selective when he's outside, where birds and squirrels often command more of his attention than his humans. He loves to cuddle and snuggle inside, and run around full speed outside. He's very sensitive to what's going on around him, and can get scared by raised voices. He does well with a consistent routine and predictability, but he gets a little out of sorts when his routine is changed up. He gets extremely eager for his walks in the morning and in the evening. He loves to run and would thrive in an environment where he could have lots of off leash time. He also loves to play tug of war with his stuffed animals and other toys. Jack will do best in a home with 1 other dog and no small children. He is very playful, will play tug with the other dogs (on his terms) and romp around the house playing.  Foster Location:   Beaufort, SC  Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Breed: ½ English Setter ½ English Pointer from Greece Socialization/Training: Jimmy is still a bit nervous of new places and people.  He initially has trouble entering enclosed rooms or certain doorways.  A little patience goes a long way with him though! Sometimes we just choose a different entrance or just give him the time he needs and treat him when he enters a new space.  Once he’s comfortable though, he makes himself right at home! He’s wary of strangers in our house and will bark and cower, but again, with time he will warm up. New noises can startle him, but once he has heard them multiple times, he does fine with them.  He’s very smart! He has quickly learned to wait until we say “ok” to eat and learned “off” for counter surfing very fast as well. We have had Jimmy about 4 weeks and he is becoming comfortable in his surroundings and has adjusted to most of the noises in our home.  It’s taken him a little longer to warm up to my husband, but he has turned the corner and with my husband and kids helping with feeding and treating him with yummy chicken, he is doing much better with them! Good with Children:  Jimmy is great with older kids.  He should be in a home with kids over 8.  I have a 9 and 11 year old and he loves them, but is definitely attached to me.  He does startle when they get excited, but he’s getting better each day! It took him about 3 weeks to start playing with them and curling up in their beds for snuggles. Good with Dogs:  Jimmy loves to play with other dogs!  Again, he just needs some time to warm up!  We have a little 16 lb mix and Jimmy adores him!  Our dog is very patient with his puppyness. He doesn’t have a lot of boundaries yet ;).  Our dog gives him a lot of confidence and I think Jimmy would do best in a home with another playful dog. Good with Cats: Unknown House Trained: I would say we are 99% percent there!  He has an occasional accident, but that is usually our fault!  As long as you give him regular breaks outside, he’s great! You do sometimes have to make sure he actually goes potty, since he gets distracted by snow and bark chips :).  We have just started training him to ring the bell on the door, so that may be an option for his new family too. Crate Trained:  Jimmy is in the crate when we are not here - we don’t trust him not to get into mischief!  He sometimes barks for a few minutes, but settles down after that. The longer we have had him the more comfortable he is in there.  He has also gone into his crate voluntarily when he’s fallen off our bed while sleeping! HAHA! Sometimes in the evenings if he’s super tired and gets a bit crazy, we’ll have him take a break in his crate and will nap.  If we tell him “crate, Jimmy”, he’ll go right in and then we give him a treat. Most nights he will fall asleep on our bed and we move him after a midnight potty break into the crate and he sleeps all night.  He’ll usually go right in after he comes back inside. He will also go in at times when he feels overwhelmed. It’s definitely a safe space for him. He also enjoys rolling around in there and playing with his blanket! Leash Trained: A work in progress!  He enjoys walks, loves chasing leaves and prefers being with our dog rather than a walk alone.  If he feels overwhelmed, he may lay down, but with some pets and patience, he’ll be up and ready to go again. Activity Level: He’s a typical Setter mix, lots of energy and running, but loves a soft couch and snuggles in the evening, and mid mornings on the weekend!  He still has a ton of puppy left in him, which is awesome! He’s an absolute hoot! He still has that sideways puppy run, which I love! Fence: He has not challenged our fence at all.  Since he loves to run so much, he would do best in a yard with a fence though.  He is curious about what is happening outside our fence, so we’re very careful when we open up any gates. Medical History: Jimmy is currently going through deworming and he will be neutered on Mar 10. He is up to date on Vaccines and microchipped. Jimmy originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He was tested right before coming to the USA and his tests were negative, but the parasite can remain dormant for up to 7 years, so his new family must commit to testing him annually for the next 7 years. Foster Comments: Jimmy is amazing.  He is such a sweetheart and will be a great family member!  He loves to be with his people, but mostly wants to be with me.  If I get up to do anything, he’s right there next to me. His first few days, he was pretty shut down, so it’s been really rewarding to see him come out of his shell.  He’s a pretty sensitive little guy, but with lots of love and patience he will thrive! Jimmy won’t give it away, you’ll have to earn his trust, but it will be SO worth it!!  He has the best velvety ears - that’s from the pointer in him!  He is especially adorable when it’s windy and he chases leaves. His jowels sometimes get caught in his teeth and he has the best pinky, spotted snout!  He also cocks his little head when he hears some noises, it’s adorable! Anyone will be lucky to have him. He’s a true sweet pea. You can check out Jimmy’s Instagram page at jimmythesetterpointer to see more photos and videos of this silly setter!

Housebroken:   He spins in circles or stands up on the door to go out.  In the middle of the night he will bark to go out, but this is rare.  He will ask to go out to check out the birds in addition to pottying. Socialization/training:  He was a street dog in Greece and can be a little leary of new people, but he warms up quickly.  I’ve taken him to outdoor restaurants and he’s been very good with strangers coming up to speak. Crate trained: I only used a crate the first 2 or 3 nights he was here.  He whimpered a little then settled down for the night. Leash trained: The leash is a work in progress, He does not react negatively, but he likes to range from side to side.  He will pull but he’s so small the pull isn’t bad. Activity Level: Loukas is still learning “play”.  He loves being with the other dogs.  He has entered in their games a few times but generally watches them play..  Outside he can be 0-60 in seconds but at the same time can freeze and watch a bird or squirrel for an exceptionally long time.  Inside he is calm and will settle on the sofa or bed.  He loves attention but is content to sleep by himself.  He has not discovered the toy boxes yet. Fence: He is currently inside 2.5 acres with an invisible fence.  I do not know how he would do with  a physical fence but he’s shown no indication of being a digger or climber. Behavior: Loukas is a very alert boy, always aware of new or different sounds or objects.  He is great inside.  He sleeps on the bed or sofa by himself but also shares nicely with people or other dogs.  He enjoys attention but is also content to be alone.  He will bark when people enter the yard or house but settles quickly.  He  doesn’t bark just to bark (but will bark continually when there is a bird out on the dock or in the marsh he can’t get to, he doesn’t bark at birds in the yard) Medical History:   Loukas was possibly stabbed in the neck before rescue.  There is a scar but he shows no discomfort.  He has no other medical issues and is UTD on vaccines.  He is on heartworm, flea & tick preventative. He may be sensitive to chicken, sometimes resulting in soft stools. Loukas originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$200. Foster Comments:  Loukas was a resident of Santorina, Greece before making the long journey to the US. He has blossemed since his initial arrival. People that met him when he first arrived are amazed to see him and constantly remark that  “he’s not the same dog they met in December”.  When he arrived he was scared of everything and wouldn’t even enter a room without studying it very carefully.  Now, he leads the pack out the door.  He is still nervous while eating but has shown no aggression of any sort. Kibble is available 24/7 and he and the other 4 do fine….he sometimes takes his mouthful of kibble to another room to eat it!! My ideal placement would be a multi-person home where someone is home most of the time with  a fence and another dog .  Spending too much time home alone could negatively affect his progress & socialization.    Foster Location:  Edisto Island, SC Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000-mile distance between adopters & foster home.

Size/Weight: 30 Pounds—setter with Brittany Mix will be small Medical History   Neo came to us from Greece. He is up to date on his vaccinations, on heart worm medication, on flea & tick preventative, microchipped, neutered—does not mark. Neo originates from Greece where Leishmaniasis is endemic. He tested negative before coming to the USA, but the parasite can remain dormant in the system for many years, so potential adopters must be willing to commit to annual testing for the next 7 years. Typically, the test needs to be sent to a special lab, but any regular vet can draw the blood and send it to the lab. The cost of the test seems to vary widely by area, but is approximately $150-$200. Good with Children:  Neo will approach slowly or let children come to him. He has puppy manners and will jump up to greet people.  He would make a good addition for a family with children.   Good with Dogs:  Yes, enjoys wrestling with the resident two year old English Setter.  Approaches new dogs slowly, with a wagging tail.   House trained:  Mostly—he knows to go the door—working on barking to let us know when he wants to go out.   Leash trained:  A work in progress. He accepts the 30 foot long leash we use in the yard—and needs more practice on a short lead.   Crate trained:  Neo sleeps in a crate in our bedroom and goes in there reluctantly when I need to leave the house.  Although somewhat resistant, he settles right in when given a chew.  Because we are a multiple dog house, we feed Neo in an open crate.  It is his happy place where yummy things show up!  He dives right in! Fence is necessary.  Neo is fast and runs like the wind.   He will need either a sturdy fence or an electric fence.   Leash walking will not provide enough exercise to wear this boy out, he needs to run.  If is wasn’t for the frozen ground—Neo would be trained on our electric fencing.  (we can’t get the flags to stay put!).  We feel that Neo would pick up this type of fencing quickly.  Training / Behavior:  Living on the streets of Greece, Neo’s experience was mainly of survival, and that was tough.  As we have helped Neo with his adjustments out of puppyhood, he has developed into a well balanced confidant young dog.  He would benefit from a Puppy beginner class for continued socialization, help to solidify good behavior and bond with his new family.   Foster Comments: Neo is all puppy— Very affectionate, energetic a love bug.   He has the softest fur, red /white spotted like a fawn. He loves his people—and tries so very hard to be good. He will play with toys & chews for a stretch, and is a master nap taker.  He loves the resident English Setter—35 pounds heavier than him—they wrestle, play, run and snooze together. Having a good relationship with another dog in his next home would be ideal--but not necessary. As he has grown, we can see that he could be an only dog in the house, provided that he has someone around most of the time and not left more than 5 hours at stretch and has other dog friends outside of his home.  He is not a dog that will do well when left for 8-9 hours a day at home at this time in his life.  He wants to be in the action.  Our latest discovery with Neo is his singing talent---We always try out the dogs with a harmonica—Neo is developing a fine voice.  He is a dog looking for a musical partner!    Neo's Comments:  My favorite thing is to play fetch and run in the snow!  I would like a buddy—four paws or two that would help me do those things.  After a good playtime, I would really like someone that would hang out to cuddle with. I am small so I don’t take up much room.    Neo is a great pup and has the qualities that a new family will welcome—attentive, sweet, looking to bond, gentle, sleeps soundly and does well in the car.  Honestly, if we didn’t have three dogs already, we would adopt him. But that would mean we could not foster, and that is what we want to do—help dogs over bad situations, getting them ready for their new family.  Neo is a wonderful puppy that has the potential and willingness to learn how to be your great dog.   Location: Port Crane, NY Volunteer transport can be arranged in the Continental US within a 1,000 mile distance between adopters & foster home.  If interstate transport is provided for your adopted dog, there will be a pass-through charge of $50.00 for the required Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (“Health Certificate”).  Typically, we are able to transport your adopted dog to within 2 hours of your home. *Dogs can be adopted outside the 1000 mile transport distance; however, adopters must be willing to either fly their adopted dog, drive to a location within the 1000 mile transport range, or make independent transport arrangements for their adopted dog.

Breed:  ES Mix- probably with a boxer, she has a face and some traits of a boxer. Socialization/training:  Panda is friendly, but timid at times, She has greatly improved while with us.  She can sit, come, and give paw (sometimes). She enjoys playing "hide and seek". She is the "seeker"! She will kiss your face when she finds you. Good with cats:  yes, she loves her kitty!  She has not bothered the chickens, just looks at them through the fence. Leash trained: yes, she uses a harness for walks. Behavior:  She loves to run outside, she chases the squirrels through the trees and along the fence top. Inside, she cuddles and plays with her toys. Activity level: moderate Fence:  A physical fence of 4-5 feet is a must for her feeling of security and safety.  She will jump up and down when excited. Medical History: All vaccinations are up to date, spayed, microchipped, on heartworm, flea & tick prevention. She behaves nicely at the vet's office. Foster comments: Panda is a sweet loving girl show has been through a lot.  When she arrived, she was afraid of everything new, loud, and fast. Our guess is that she spent her time in a pen outside alone. She has come a long way.  She can now go for walks and not be afraid of loud noises, trucks, and  new things. She is curious about young children but their fast movements and noise would be too much for her to live with.  She is most comfortable with the people she lives with.  Panda settles quickly with female guests but new men are scary at the moment.  She does love the three boys in our house (ages 14 - 20) but it took time and work on their part to win her affection. Panda is curious about new things and will eat things you would rather she did not. She is very smart !! She learned how to pull the kleenex out of the box.  Panda would do best with a companion dog to help her feel secure. She is a copy cat and does what the others do. We have seen her lift her leg to pee like our male dog.  Panda needs a quiet house with lots of love and patience to help her continue to build her confidence.  She will reward you with her unwavering loyalty, and lots of hugs and kisses!
