Meet WI/Microwave aka Mika (Bonded w Toaster)
Mika is a healthy, 39 pounds, almost one year old Brittany/Lab Mix. She adores running around in her fosters' yard, going for walks in the neighborhood, hunting for squirrels and other critters, playing fetch, performing surveillance duty while looking out the picture window and sliding doors of her fosters' home, and gobbling up all the training treats she can. Her current favorite pastime is claiming all of the pillows on foster parents' bed as her own.
Mika means "quick and nimble." And does she ever live up to her namesake! Unsurprisingly then, according to Mika's foster family, Mika does best with one or two one-hour walks daily plus lots of romping around in her foster family's fenced yard. Mika likes her treats; so, training should come naturally for those who are committed to spending time doing so.
Mika is a very loving dog once she really knows you. She basks in all the hugs, tummy rubs, and praise her foster family can give her. However, she is weary of most strangers (adults and children) and their dogs. Mika's foster mom feels her fear is rooted in her limited time for socialization while she and her sister were being boarded before coming into foster care. As a result, any potential adopter(s) who is/are serious about adopting Mika will need to keep in mind slow introductions of people, animals, and even noisy household appliances (like the vacuum cleaner) are best. Mika is fearful and handles it by barking and lurching.
Serious adopters will need to be committed to continuing Mika's training. Right now Mika knows "sit," "paw," "stay," and "come." We continue to work on, "down,""look at me," and "off." Mika most definitely is a food aficionado; consequently, we have been trying to break her of counter surfing. To her credit, Mika soaks up all the love and affection that she can. Sometimes, MIka and her sister compete for attention, toys, and even space in the yard.
Mika is crate and potty trained. She does still need to do plenty of heavy duty chewing. Foster Mom has learned that the hard way:). At first, Mika was afraid of our five year old. Now they are the best of friends. Again, slow and calm introductions are a must. Mika is a jumper and a climber, so a six foot privacy fence would be best. This dog is fiercely loyal and loving. This dynamic duo (Mika and Tosa) will make the right adopter a great addition to his/her family!
