Rousseau is the sweetest, most loving and loyal dog you can find. She is the biggest cuddle bug and is totally content to spend all afternoon lying around or watching TV.

If she's not doing that, she's playing with her favorite moose toy. Mr. Moose has been her favorite toy and she'll toss it around and nibble on it. Unlike the rest of her toys it continues to stay in one piece.

Rousseau is incredibly smart and loves working for her food and treats. She already knows several commands such as down, sit and shake. She is crate-trained and knows how to obey "heel on her walks. She also understands "off if she decides to sneak onto your couch.

She has had separation anxiety and dog reactivity. She's being treated by Positive Reinforcement training and responds incredibly well. New owners will be able to use that as a tool to help Rousseau settle into her new home.

Rousseau should be the only pet in the home; she needs a place that is pet free where she can continue decompressing after training or dealing with other dogs.

Whoever can be patient to help this sweet lady will have an incredible companion for the rest of their life. Come meet this lovable lady!
Come meet your new best friend
