Rue (5 1/2yo SF) is a very sweet girl with lots of energy and love to give. She really enjoys going for walks about 3-4 times a day. We are working on her manners, she is strong and she pulls and barks when cars go by. She does not like cars at all (she hates windshield wipers) she does not do well riding in the car and she wants to chase cars that drive by when walking. Rue does not need to be crated, she is housebroken and I have had no problems with leaving her free to roam during the days. She likes to sleep in the bed at night, but doesn’t hog it or snore which is nice!
She does not like to share her things or her space too much. I have introduced her to other dogs both inside and out. She seems to do better outside, but can still be somewhat aggressive if she is approached too quickly by another dog. She would do best as an only pet. She has not met any cats, but she likes to chase squirrels and bunnies so I don’t know how well she’d do with cats. She has met a few kids on our walks and has been gentle with them. My favorite thing about Rue is her giant smile and her sweet personality. She is always very happy to see me when I get home. She always wants to be pet and loved, yet she does have a bit of an independent side too.
She is very vocal and has no problem telling you when she wants something. It seems as though she has some anxiety about loud noises and traffic so I think she’d do best in a quiet home with a backyard. She also gets anxiety about being left home. I usually give her a few treats before I leave and that seems to help. Rue is a very energetic lady and she will no doubt make someone a wonderful companion! She is completely healthy, has been vetted, and is up to date on her vaccines.
