Pearl is your Mini Aussie gem! An easy-going girl that is chill at just 3 years old. Due to merle-to-merle breeding, Pearl is partially deaf. She seems to respond to loud noises, but her foster parents use hand signals to communicate with her. Pearl brings love, strength, and maturity (no housebreaking, barking or destruction issues here!) Pearl is potty-trained, knows sit, and is smart and ready to work on more basic obedience. She lets her family know she needs to go potty by barking at them! Pearls foster parents are able to leave her to roam the house freely when they leave as shes proven to be extremely trustworthy and very well-behaved when no one is home. She is a typical Velcro Aussie girl, sleeping next to the bed, at your feet or by your side. She is great with kids of all ages. She even loves to be by the 9-month-old baby. She enjoys sitting right next the baby when she's playing and naps nearby when the baby naps. Pearl likes to be the queen of the house, so no other female dogs but male dogs are her friends. Cats are not Pearls choice, as they look fun to chase. She will require a fenced-in yard because once shes outside, she really loves to explore the world. Pearl is working hard on her girlish figure with agility dog park visits and leash walks as she needs daily exercise. Pearl is a fluffy marshmallow, super soft and gives the best kisses!! She is fostered in Chicago land but we are open to out of state adoption.
