Meet Atina

Hi, my name is Atina! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Exuberant, playful, intelligent, jumpy, and excitable.
-Can Live with Kids: Yes, kids 16+
-Can Live with Cats: No - I chase cats!
-Can Live with Dogs: Atina can be a little obnoxious with other dogs and is still learning how to be polite in her interactions with them. At this point, any dogs in the home would need to be very tolerant of pesky puppy behavior! She would not be well matched with those who are small, elderly, or dog-selective. Any potential canine housemates will have to meet at the shelter first to make sure they are a good match!
-Can do Apartment Living: No - too high energy.
-Potty Trained: Yes
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, 3 private lessons to work on basic obedience and develop a separation anxiety plan.
-Leash Trained: Yes
-Energy Level: High!
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: No
-Additional Information: Atina is a whirlwind of energy who has lacked consistency in her life. She would really benefit from a consistent, predictable routine with an experienced, patient owner as she reportedly experiences some separation anxiety behaviors. In order to be a balanced dog, Atina will need a home where someone is almost always home or has the resources to send her to doggie daycare. She's super smart and will likely catch on to training very quickly! Atina can be a little rowdy, but offer her a treat and ask her to "sit" and she will gladly oblige! She would love to join you on all of your outdoor adventures and then curl up for a nap on the couch.
