Our beautiful brown dog Blue, needs a new country home, ideally with a secure fenced yard. Since she was adopted as a puppy from KAAP, she has lived on 2 acres near the Slocan River and loves to run the rail trails, and take a dip in the water. She loves to eat carrots and fresh peas and would sell her best friend for a piece of toast!
Blue is mostly indifferent to other dogs (she ignores them). We are not sure how she is with young children (could be skittish around children as they can be unpredictable). When she is on the beach surrounded by kids she is fine, so I really don’t know what it would be like for her in a busy family situation.
She is strong and loves to walk or run beside the bike but prefers shorter walks to long ones. Blue needs further work on her leash walking (she pulls) and will benefit from a training harness to help her with this. She also needs training on her recall. Anyone who enjoys working with their dog will find Blue a receptive companion.
She is used to routine, wakes at 7, has breakfast, takes a nap. She will sleep on and off throughout the day when we are at work. She will walk on a leash but needs reminders to walk beside the person, as she is easily distracted. When she does sneak out of the yard, she can be found at the river, just standing in the water enjoying herself. Blue has ongoing anxiety issues, and she will overreact to commands, so the way to her brain is to be calm. She is a lover, not a fighter.
