MEET DOZER. At age 11, Dozer is still active and loves her walks. She is a bit cranky in her old age so is best without children in the home even though she was raised with kids. She has had many dogs around her but loves being an only child. If your passion is companionship and regular short distance walks with cuddling on the side, this girl is for you! Here is what her foster in Wrightwood (San Bernardino) has to say about her:
Dozer is doing wonderfully well… Such a very nice girl! Excellent watch dog; still indifferent to my own two plus a foster, but zero aggression except a warning bark when one of them comes right next to her crate. I’m crating her ONLY when she’s in the same room with the others… It’s too small a space for me to feel comfortable letting them all be together, otherwise, for the short time she’s with me. She does very well in it. Dozer ignores the other dogs when pottying in the yard. She has stopped looking like she’s searching for the relinquishing family. She is only is unhappy when I leave the room (barks for me to come back). Has absolutely no issues when she’s out with me in other parts of the house or yard. Would much rather be loose than crated… like most dogs. Eating well, doesn’t resist going into the crate. Getting friendlier with me- tail wagging, coming close to be pet. I’m strongly guessing she’d be fine loose in a home, especially after getting used to a new routine…she has excellent manners. But for the short remaining time, I’ll just experiment briefly, once, when I have my tax appointment in 2 days: choosing to leave her to have the run of the downstairs, rather than be stressed and miserable in the crate once I leave. Normally it’s not something I ever do with a new foster, but rather a gut reaction with this particular old lady. 🙂
