Holly is blonde in color.

Holly is very playful and enjoys toys such as tennis balls, Kongs, Nylabones etc.  

She does not resource guard - she gets along great with my resident 3 year old male Golden and my  6 year old mix breed female.  My 3 year old Golden loves toys as well and they have no problem sharing or stealing from each other often trading toys back and forth as if it were a game. 

Holly isn't a big fan of getting into the crate when her human is near but will go in to eat and drink if given space.  Once she is in though and the door shut she settles in very nicely - no anxious behavior aside from the expected low whines for a couple of minutes.  

Equally when we return home - she waits patiently for us to let her out - no barking or whining whatsoever. She is fantastic in this regard. 

I would not say I've been perfect yet in reading her cues to go outside - as I've had a couple accidents in the house.  When she is let out on lead and taken to her area she does her business quickly.  

Holly is a bit of a puller if on a flat collar.  I've introduced her to a Gentle Leader collar this week and she does much better on that although she still will try and paw it off occasionally. She does not resist getting it on which is surprising.  

We have three cats - Holly wishes they'd play with her more, but does great with them inside.  

Holly takes treat gently. She knows Sit, almost has Down mastered and slowly but surely getting the hang of heal - but still needs work.  She seems to also know Give when asked for a toy she lets go very nicely. 

Holly will be going in on Thursday November 12th to get Spayed and microchip. If you are interested in meeting Holly, please let your Placement Advisor know.
