Description
We rescued Soka from a local shelter about 3 months ago with hope that she'd be a good fit to become a service animal for me. He last home was abusive towards her as a pup, so she never got to express herself freely, which has caused issues behavior-wise with us. She's just very hyperactive and rough with other animals, thinking she's still puppy-size. She requires a home without small children because of her trauma. She is house-trained mostly, she knows basic commands, and she's an absolute sweetheart who just needs room to run and play. Her only behavioral issues are that she often gets into the garbage and eats our other animals' food when unsupervised, and she can get defensive when hands are raised at her, even when playing. She doesn't like to be patted hard, especially on her sides, but she loves a good scratch on the bum! She's very curious and loyal, always following behind you and watching your every move. She loves the outdoors, but was never leash-trained, so her walking isn't the best (it's more her pulling your arm off dragging you). I feed her 4 cups of grain-free food, 2 in the morning and 2 at night, which is recommended for a dog her size and with her energy. I'd recommend having a decent size yard so she can be tied outside where she loves to people-watch. She isn't much of a barker unless it's influenced, and she has a pretty deep growl when she plays, but she wouldn't use that against you with as big of a heart as she has! She must always wear her harness because the act of putting it on and taking it off constantly makes her very nervous and defensive. She also LOVES car rides! She'll come with her harness, leash, tie out with ground-stake, and what's left of her food.
