F | 3 Y | Mixed breed | 21 lbs | Costa Rica | High energy | Affectionate | Barker | Dog social | Not cat or kid tested
Meet MITZI! This girl has travelled from the laid back land of Costa Rica and now that her pura vida, surfer days are behind her she's ready to take on life in the big city. MITZI is an active, athletic girl and is looking for a fam to keep her busy. MITZI jumps on the bed every morning at 7 am to wake you up so you can throw that alarm clock out right now. She's currently training for a marathon or something jogging like three times a week with her foster. She LOVES running. She's still working on her recall skills and shouldn't be off leash in open areas so running really is the best way for her to burn off her energy. Her minimum activity level is two one hour walks per day plus play time. Ideally she'd like a home with a yard but it's not an absolute requirement given the right adopters. MITZI does need training on a leash as she pulls a lot and wants to chase all the little critters. She knows her basic commands but sometimes is just way too excited to listen. She would definitely benefit from some more training. In the home MITZI is super affectionate and loves snuggles. She always wants her belly and head rubbed and will playfully paw at you if you stop. She's potty and crate trained and stays in there while you're at work. MITZI is a barker though and will be quite vocal when you leave the house, but she's working on it. Because of this she'd be best suited to a house over an apartment. MITZI is good with other dogs although occasionally barks with excitement. She hasn't been tested with cats but does seem to have a prey drive and although not tested we think this friendly girl would be fine with kids! If you'd like to meet MITZI fill out an application. P.S. WHO DOESN'T LOVE A UNDERBITE!!
Please note that Mitzi is heartworm positive.
