From Chickla's foster: Chickla has been so great! She loved the car ride and wanted to give lots of kisses. She's great on her leash and loves to go on walks, she even likes playing in the rain and dipping her toes in the water. She's been kept in a dane-sized crate during the typical work day, and seems to do just fine.

She's potty trained and knows all the basic commands - quick learner, almost knows how to shake with just a few training sessions. Really good at listening and responds immediately when you tell her 'no'. She's definitely a couch potato! Likes to sit next to you on the bed or couch and get head/back scratches.

She's gotten along well with our dogs and when it's nap time, our labs like to sleep right outside her crate and give each other kisses when they wake up.

Her favorite toys: tennis balls, tug o war toys, and LOVES things that squeak. Particularly a snake toy with squeakers... can be found at HEB. She likes to bite down on plush toys when she gets excited and likes to throw her toys around and chase them.

While she likes bacon treats, she gets way more excited about steamed carrots! She also loves to chew on raw-hide alternative style bones - we use Smart Bones.

She is not a barker, does not spook with storms, and she is pretty calm most of the time with little spurts of energy when it is playtime. Super sweet girl, and pays attention to everything. When she wants to go potty, play, or just get out of her crate, she has a quiet little whimper paired with puppy eyes. We gave her a bath in our shower and she did well with one person comforting her, while the other person scrubbed.

She is so observant and so sweet, but definitely needs attention and love. I think she really misses interaction and cuddles. She never wants playtime to end and gets so excited to play with toys. I definitely think she loves her own space, she liked going back to her crate to sleep...but probably would choose the couch or dog bed if she was able to roam freely haha."

This sweet girl is as happy as can be and has a contagious zest for life. She's lived with dogs of all sizes in the past, along with a cat and kids, and has been a playful girlfriend to all.
