Personality: Sweet, clumsy, goofy Ariel is a puppy in a big dog body - but with better manners. She's super smart, and thanks to the help of her foster family, is well-trained - she knows sit, shake, down, and stay! Ariel is crate-trained, and has been successfully staying in her crate with a chew toy while her foster parents go to work. She's also learned that when the alarm goes off in the morning, it's time for her walk. Ariel's first favorite thing is playing tug, and her second favorite thing is meeting new people and then cuddling on the couch with them. Ariel is housetrained, eager to learn, and the perfect mix of energy levels. History: Ariel came to us from another shelter. She was stressed in our shelter, so she has been spending time in foster homes to help her thrive.Dog Skills: Ariel has shown to be conflicted about dogs. She can be nervous around forward dogs, intolerant of rowdy behavior/play and unsure how to interact with more insecure dogs! To make matters more exciting, she has successfully met and interacted with dogs on leash and has shown that she can be, in fact very playful and social with some dogs as well. This is why we love Ariel so much. She is like an onion - she continues to surprise and confound us with the deep well that is this sweet girl. And, since we cannot determine exactly what triggers Ariel's intolerance of some dogs but not others, she should be an only dog at this time. Cat Skills: We do not have a history of Ariel living with cats, but her fosters have noted that she will try to chase them while out on walks. Leash Skills: Ariel is very strong, and will need guidance to help redirect her away from dogs while on walks. She can sometimes become tentative with lots of environmental noises or activity, and focuses really well on her handler when positive reinforcement is used to help encourage her to be brave.Medical: Ariel has a few medical issues, and some will need ongoing care. She has a partial ligament injury in her right knee, which has resolved, but she may develop arthritis in this knee in the future.The long bones in Ariel's knees are prone to inflammation, and it can be painful for her to walk. Most recently, it caused lameness in her front right leg, which is now resolving with exercise restrictions, pain management, and time.Ariel also suffered from allergies in and around her ears when she arrived. We treated her with medication and a bland diet, and her allergies have resolved! If her allergies come back, her new family may need to treat them in a similar way, and we can provide more information about this!Ready to meet Ariel? Fill out the form to learn more!
