"Veeea is an incredibly good dog. She is smart, affectionate, playful, and silly. She loves to get Nose Boops.
She loves other dogs and would do well with another dog in the home, young or older. She does growl, bark, and lunge on leash but is then super happy when she gets to meet the other dog. Having her on a gentle leader has helped with that a lot. She is a good player, not too rough and will avoid altercations if possible. She will fight back though is she is cornered by another dog.
At this time we are not recommending a household with cats as it appears her prey drive is high.
She absolutely LOVES her crate and we will send it with her. It is her safe space. If she feels afraid or overwhelmed, she goes to her crate. The first week here, she drug every single toy in this house into her crate every day. It was pretty amusing. She eats her breakfast and dinner in her crate and stays in there when we are away from the house.
She rides well in the car. She is learning not to bark at pedestrians, bikes, and people in the cars around us.
She loves loves loves to be on the couch and bed with me. She even tries to push the other dogs away and squeeze in between.
She loves to chew on stuff, so far her favorite is a hard nylabone like bat. We will send that with her as well. She does, however, also chew on things she shouldn't. She is still young so we take it away from her and give her an appropriate item to chew on.
Her only issue thus far has been her continued hesitation to meeting new people.
She bonded with me (the main foster mom) almost immediately, but she "tolerates" my partner. She likes her, but she won't cuddle with her or come to her, even after 4 months of foster. New people take a lot more convincing and time. And good treats. She really likes Cheetos, she will take those from just about anyone. Her biggest fear response seems to be triggered by large, masculine people.
We have not worked on obedience training, focusing instead on house manners and socialization.
The ideal home for Veeea would be a single, active woman. She would make an excellent hiking or running partner. She would also make a great office dog. I take her to work with me (I work at a veterinary hospital) and she has been able to spend some slower days at my desk with me. Once she has met everyone in the office, she won't bark at them. We hang a bag of Cheetos outside my door and people give her one or two when they come to my office.
She could do well as a single dog or with a dog partner. She does not like being left and we can hear her barking as we come back to the house, so an apartment might not be best for her. If she is a single dog, she would prefer going everywhere with her person.
She would prefer not to be in a home with children. She seems to be a one person dog, finding her person and then simply tolerating others around her. Side note: She has killed 2 wild rabbits in our backyard."
Veea will remain with her foster family until her forever family is found, so introductions will need to be scheduled in advance. If Veea sounds like the perfect pup for you, submit an application to get a meet&greet in the books!
