A Little Bit About Me
Chula is a young dog who is too smart for her own good. She will need an experienced adopter who would love the challenge of channeling all that intelligence and energy. Chula is athletic and could participate in just about any canine sport. First take her to an obedience class for the fundamentals. Then try agility, nosework, herding, barn hunt, trailing, treiball, dock-diving, lure coursing; you get the idea. Anything that will keep her mind and body busy, busy, busy.
Chula does not have a gracious approach when meeting new dogs. She tends to be pushy and insistent, poking her nose and getting in the face of the other dog. However, if the other dog is tolerant and corrects her rude behavior, she will respond appropriately. She may be able to have one or two dog friends to play with, but it is not advisable to take her to dog parks. Her greeting behavior may not be amenable to some dogs and she could get into a scuffle. And, she may chase small dogs.
Chula likes her high-value edible items and does not like to share. Our behavior staff will give you a protocol to follow so that she does not feel compelled to be possessive. We think that because of this behavior, an adults-only family would be best for Chula.
This exciting young dog will present a challenge to her adopters but she will be a blast to train!
