Rhiannon has had a rough time of it, but now she is “almost home.” Amazingly her former life has not dimmed her love for people and she gets along well with both cats and other dogs.
She is a beautiful girl who is working on getting a little trimmer, she loves her food, and will be spayed after she loses some of her extra weight. Either she has not had any experience with steps or else her weight makes steps difficult for her. She goes up and down the three steps to go outside, but has not yet mastered a staircase. Riding in a car is a treat for her, but she needs help to get into the car. It is unknown if she will be able to do that herself when she has completed her diet.
She is completely housebroken and although she does well in a crate, after she proved she was reliable with other dogs, she has not been crated while the fosters are gone. In every way she has proven herself to be a true lady. She does not appear to have any bad habits at all, no chewing, no accidents in the house, is not afraid of thunder or loud noises and is quiet. Walks are enjoyable for both Rhiannon and her human. She walks well on a leash and enjoys her 15 minute walks several times a day. At a recent outdoor ballet concert she made friends with everyone she met, children, adults and even a policeman! And, she added her applause by barking when the humans clapped at the end of each performance, a real cultural aficionado.
Her foster said she is 95 pounds of pure love. She loves to be close to her humans, loves to be spoken to, to be petted and to have her belly rubbed. If you are looking for a calm, friendly girl who loves to be loved and love you back, you will have found her in Rhiannon.
