Other Info: Dog taken as foster at 9 months. Owner had kept confined to kennel or tie out. Broke out enough they stopped looking for her. Came with long-standing, undiagnosed bladder infection and developed fear of kennels because of it. Have fostered for five months. Kennels nicely now. Some leash training and use of a bark collar. Previous owner used bark collar haphazardly. She has graduated to voice command for quiet and only whines in kennel now. Super sweet and wants to please! She is still a puppy and plays harder than the fat, old Weim she lives with can take. Plays well with the Dane. We have no back yard for her to run it off in. She was very dog focused when she came and had strange phobias that seemed related to not trusting humans. She's doing very well now and is a happy girl. Still super energetic and needs an experienced home that is capable to continuing training. Loves to fetch and we believe would do very well with hunting. I wouldn't recommend a home with small children. She will mow them over.
