We are trying to re-home a pup we took in on a trial and now the old owner is ghosting; she occasionally goes after our cat, and we can't have that. She's smaller, about 24 pounds, very sweet, well-behaved, beautiful, walks fairly well on leash and wonderfully with gentle leader, loves kids and other dogs, plays fetch and will gently wrestle with other gentle dogs, wants to always be in the room with you or the children, especially the kids... I was told she was raised from puppy with toddler and baby, and it shows. The down side is she occasionally goes after my cat. She barks at all little creatures running past the yard- squirrels, cats, humans near the fence- but she quiets when I tell her to stop and comes inside. She sometimes barks at strangers during walks but always sniffs then and allows people to pet her. Vaccines up to date, I just spayed her 4 weeks ago, fully healed. I think she was with a stay-at-home mom and kids. If I try to leave her alone in a room or living area when I leave, she will whine but everything is in place and ok when I get back! But if I leave her in the room with my other dog when I leave, she doesn't even whine. So... she'd probably do best in a house with another dog.
She would do well with a family that has someone home much of the day. She loves being outside to fetch, play with dog friends, or just hang out, but when she's not playing with another dog, she would usually prefer to stay with her people. Loves walks and knows when you pick up a harness it's time to go. Loves car rides. Needs to get her energy out daily- not a ton, but definitely has some!
She's a great dog, needs a great home without cats/small animals. I just payed a small fortune getting her spayed and vaccinated, so anything to help replace some of that would be great.
