This young gal, about 18 months old, came from China. She was given her name because she has bigger ears. She was never called by her given China name, and she is growing into her ears now. We call her Indy.
Indy served her quarantine time in a previous foster home with several other dogs. She was in their face when playing so was kept separate. She can live with another dog if he or she tolerates rough play.
I have one adopted dog from Korea that is 6 years old. They get along fine until Indy tries to put her tennis ball or a stick in his face. For the most part he doesn't care, so it took a week for him to tell her off. They roll in the grass together and love to chase each other (without the tennis ball). Play time is fun!
She is crate trained, sleeps all night, and goes in when you need to leave her. I feed her separate from my dog. She was on medication when she came to me and took it with peanut butter in her food bowl with her meals.
Indy loves every person she meets, young and old. She likes the neighbor's small dog next door, and even when it is barking at her through the chain link fence, she shows no reaction. The neighbor has a motorcycle and it doesn't scare her.
She loves to retrieve and brings the ball back to you. She played very nicely with a 7-year-old friend for several hours the past few days. She knows how to sit when asked and comes when you call “Indy.” She takes treats from your hand very gently. She doesn't get on the furniture. She has some weight to gain yet.
I suggest no dog parks because someone else might throw a tennis ball for their dog. I suggest dog obedience classes so she learns to behave properly around other dogs.
With the right forever home, Indy will be a great family member for many years. If you are interested in this young, dark red gal, review the Adoption information under the ADOPT tab.
