Juanita is such a lover-girl with a big, beautiful smile and bright silver eyes! She loves kisses, and if you make any sound that could be mistaken for a smooch, she comes right over to love on you! When she wants to cuddle, she will squish her way into any spot she can to be as close as possible. At night, her favorite way to get close to her foster parents is by sleeping in between their pillows at the top of their bed!
Juanita basically has two modes: playtime and chill time, and she doesn't do either of them halfway. She's a big fan of playing with balls but is also fascinated by television and makes a great Netflix buddy. And while she loves to be on the couch and getting scratched behind the ears, she's not clingy about it and is also perfectly content to lie in her crate or on her own bed. When Juanita is super-relaxed, she makes an adorable sigh that sounds like the air being let out of a tire. It's very soothing just watching her dream and listening to her tiny snores.
Juanita will use you to determine how energetic she should be. If you want to relax, she will curl up right next to you and lay her head on your lap. If you want to go on a walk, she will be more than happy to be active with you! She can be high energy at times, but her love for zoomies, playing fetch, and going on long walks will tire her out in no time! She loves her nylabone and Kongs and can keep herself occupied for hours with those. She also loves meeting new people and is working on her manners, so she doesn't overwhelm them with her enthusiasm.
This sweet girl is house-trained and will let you know when she needs to go outside. When left home alone, she lays around on the couch or the bed and isn't destructive at all, but she also does well in a crate. She knows sit, can sit with distance, sit for duration and comes when freed. She can also shake, down, and roll over (but only to the left! it's too cute!).
This smart girl is also thriving in APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP), which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193
Juanita is guaranteed to give you love and cuddles. If you're looking for a smart, loyal dog to watch tv and cuddle with, Juanita's your girl!
