Hello, my name is Chrissy. I am what my foster mom calls a happy go lucky kind of dog. I am still young and full of life and energy.

I am learning my basics but have crate please and sit down to a T. We are still working on wait and down but am getting pretty good at it, especially with treats, I am very food motivated.

I sleep through the night and am good at home alone during the day as long as I can get a potty break. I do well on leash as long as there are treats involved. I have not gone on a walk yet with my foster mom since I am still so young but we have been practicing leash manners at home.

I am only 6 months old and still very much a puppy so my new family will need to be committed to continuing my training. My foster home has 4 other dogs and I love all of them! I also have a cat living in my house and am good with her, we do not interact much but I am very respectful to her. We have a bunch of chew toys at home which is great because I am a big chewer, but have learned to leave shoes and furniture alone for the most part although my foster mom sometimes has to remind me. I listen very well to direction but sometimes get frazzled so training with me takes patience.

I am full of love and ready for my next adventure. If you'd like to meet me and get puppy kisses please fill out an application.
