=== NEEDS SOMEONE FAMILIAR WITH THE BREED ===
We adopted Aeris from our local SPCA the middle of November. She's 4 years old and is spayed and up to date on all her shots. She finished her last rounds of heartworm treatment the middle of Dec.
She appears to not have been socialized properly. Which is hard to know given no information about where she came from or anything that happened to her. Since we haven't had her that long there are a lot of things that we are currently working with her on behavior wise:
* When she sees another dog on a leash she barks and pulls.
* Currently she is resource guarding a lot ( we do have another dog) and hypervigilant.
* She's a bit food/toy agressive.
Mind you we are working on these issues with her. She is very smart and learns quickly.
She is crate trained and potty trained.
Her skills are sit, shake, down, come and stay.
Other than the few issues stated above, she can be a laid back dog and very loving. It appears she doesn't like cats. She gets scared easily (kids, people on bikes, motorized wheelchairs) but I believe that is all due to not being socialized.
We are looking for a good home for her for someone who has the time to work with her and give her the attention she needs. I don't want to bring her back to the SPCA for her just to get lost in the system. Especially since they might not tell the new owners the issues she currently has.
