Meet Xaria

Hey there! Hi! Xaria here, Squirrel Vigilance Patrol, at your service! If you can tell by my puppy energy, I just love tracking, chasing, and ridding you of those pesky varmints. Not to worry while I am around! Tagging in at 15 lbs., I am a great size to rid your life of any squirrel bothering you in your backyard and will only need belly rubs in return. And while the squirrels may capture my attention, I will come to you and leave them be as soon as you call my name -- I'm a very good listener.

Don’t let my frolicking, 5 month old energy deter you. I have loads of fabulous qualities. I am very smart and love to learn. My favorite thing in the world is playing with kids. That and my backyard. I like to run around and play on my foster mom’s equipment. I can run through tunnels, climb and slide. Then there’s the occasional “sit on top of the slide to survey the kingdom” to ensure no squirrels penetrate the fence line. Perhaps the best thing about loving being outside, I am doing really well with my potty training.

Going out for a ride? Wonderful! I’m a social butterfly, who happens to be good in the car and walking on a leash with you. (Unless you know, a squirrel enters our space and threatens us. Remember, I am an experienced squirrel hunter.) I do need slow intros to other dogs, on a leash especially. Once I am certain they won’t hurt me (or are part of the secret squirrel spy ring), I do really well with them. At this point, I would do best in a house where I'm the only dog.

I may be a high-energy playful dog, but at the end of the day, I get tired too and turn into a low-energy soul who relishes napping and cozying up in my crate. Care to snuggle and cuddle? I’m up for it! Fill out an application and meet me!
