Being outside & having her ears scratched

Not getting to eat outside.

Favorite Toy:
A floppy stuffed puppy.

Favorite Food:
Raw turkey backs, whole raw chickens, raw carrots, popcorn, anything you're eating

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, for as long as you'll walk with her. Bonus if people stop to pet her or if she meets new dogs.

Arrival Story:
I met her at the shelter at which I volunteer and was completely smitten with her. We weren't planning on a second dog until sometime in 2005, but after telling my husband about her and showing him her picture we emailed the shelter the next day to put a hold on her.

Not much is known of her background as she came to the shelter as a stray. Her previous owners seem to have trained her somewhat, but obviously never taught her not to "door dart"; that's where our main focus lies right now. She's a very well socialized dog with other dogs, cats, small children, elderly people, and small animals. Very laid back and not a jumper. She's taken the transition from Purina kibble (ick ick!) to raw very well with no side effects save a much softer coat, more energy, cleaner teeth, and nice fresh breath.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
