Meet Strudel

Please meet Sweet Strudel!

Strudel is a 9-month old whippet/boxer mix weighing around 45lbs. Strudel is good with dogs with slow introductions but no furry felines for this girl. She currently does not live with children, but because she can be a little anxious, we believe that she would do best in a house with older dog-savvy kids. Strudel is both potty trained and crate trained, and is extremely affectionate with her people. She likes to be around her humans but also wouldn't mind a romp in the yard with a furry friend. The ideal home for Sweet Strudel would be one with a fenced yard as she loves to run and is very fast as is in her whippet nature!

She is still in her puppy years, and has developed some naughty puppy manners, but with some patience and training, she should blossom into a very loyal and loving best friend! Similar to her siblings, she is a bit nervous around men which could mean something happened in her past. It doesn't mean she cannot live with men, but if there are men in the house, they just have to be patient and allow Strudel the space to develop a trusting relationship.

All known information about an individual dog is provided in its listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters should understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for 1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only hold it for one hour per month of age (i.e. a 4-month-old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break). 2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise. 3.) Socialization. The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home. 4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well-adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded ten-fold, for years to come. Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy. Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time-consuming and can be expensive. All dogs require supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well-socialized dog is more than worth the effort to get them there.
