Lorelai is a pup in a big girl's body! She has lots of energy and prefers a young active single/couple household who is willing to teach her "how to dog." She loves playing with toys, especially tennis balls or ones that squeak. Squeaky tennis balls are her favorite! She also loves all kinds of treats.

She knows Sit very well and has been working on other commands such as Paw and Down. It doesn't take her long to warm up to you and when she does, she will follow you around the house and wait outside doors for you to come out. She loves running, jumping, and chasing after squirrels and lizards. Lorelai also loves rolling on her back for her belly rubs and scratches. Scratches near her backside are her absolutely favorite and will distract her from anything.

Patience is important in her forever home as she can be a bit stubborn and is still learning household manners. It will never be boring in a day with Lorelai!
