Hi! I go by the name Oakley. I’m a sweet, goofy girl who needs a special, loving home.
Are you patient? Will your training methods be positive, loving and consistent? Do you agree that bad habits don’t change overnight? Do you have an active dog in your home? Are you active? If you have kids are they dog savvy and over 12 years? Will you love me no matter how mischievous I get?
If you answered yes to all of the above I want to meet you!
I come with a few quirks…..are you ready?
I counter surf and I steal food. Out of the frypan, off your plate, out of your hand! I’m sneaky and fast. Food is one of my favourite things! I know how to sit. My stay is improving. Often times now I will sit quietly behind you and wait for my bowl. But if you aren’t careful I still steal food any chance I can get.
I like to jump up on people. I get very excited and when I get into my hyper zone, I nip, grab hands and pull at clothing. I think of people as other dogs and am learning the difference. Because I am so food motivated and smart, consistent and positive training will help me curb these habits. This is also the reason small kids shouldn’t be in my home. I’m not aggressive, just goofy. I give a lot of sloppy kisses too!
When I first moved into my foster home I had quite a few potty accidents. They are now not as often…. just watch for my signals!
Along with my quirks comes lots of good qualities! I’m very playful. I will provide you with lots of laughs. I love to cuddle and will help keep you warm this cold winter. Car rides? I love them! I would prefer to have another active dog to live with. I get along very well with dogs. But I can be pushy and play hard so no shy or old dogs for me. I walk well on a leash. My recall off leash needs work. A large fenced yard would be ideal for me as my energy level is up there with the Energizer Bunny. I’m not kennel trained but so far have been pretty good free roaming.
Not only am I beautiful but my personality is the best! I just need the perfect people to see how great I am. Love me and I will be the most loving, loyal friend.
