Ain't she a beauty?
Some of you may have guessed, but there's a new foster kid in town! Say Hello to our 33rd foster, Brienne! I told the momma that I think she's a Corbin breed, but she said that petfinder has yet to recoginze the Corbin as its own breed. Whatever.
She came from a very sad and scary place...
Can you even believe it's the same dog?
She was left abandoned there, with nothing but that stack of wood for shelter. The nice lady at the animal shelter took her in and gave her yummy food, so she had put some weight on by the time we got her. She still needs quite a bit of weight and she's growning more and more every day. We think she's about a year old and possibly had a litter of puppies. She came to us last Sunday, just after my dad's big party!
Bree is all puppy though! She is quite immature and is still learning how to run around with those big long legs of hers. She looks like a minature horse! She can be stubborn and silly and playful all in 5 minutes! She does like to take naps though and she really loves to play with a ball!
Her and Amelia haven't become fast friends like Amelia and Mayzie did. They don't hate each other, but I don't see the words BFF being used to describe them any time soon.
Did I mention that she's quite large? She's as tall as the Corbin and longer than me too. She still needs to gain some weight, so we're getting her lots of noms.
She's a very wonderful house guest though. She's house trained and crate trained and sleeps on one of the dog beds at night. She did hop into the shower with the momma the other night, so we're thinking she's not too scared of water. She doesn't have any food aggression or an ounce of any sort of aggression that we've seen... Oh, except for cats. She doesn't like cats. Or, maybe she likes them a bit too much! Hehe, sorry to my kitty friends! She's not much of a barker and rides well in the car. She's picked up "sit," "paw," and "down" in a short amount of time - although, she may have known "sit" before hand... and if you didn't give her the treat right away, she quickly went to "paw in the face"... so we've worked on her patience in the treating department! She's also gotten the hang of sitting for her meals... she's a very quick learner and super smart -although a bit stubborn sometimes!
We can't wait to tell you more about her as the days go on and she settles in more!
