BREEZE, or “Mama Breeze,” as we often call her, came into rescue with six adorable puppies who have happily found their forever homes. And each and every one of her pups has her “breezy,” happy-go-lucky personality. Breeze is about 2 years of age herself, so when her puppies were weened, we were delighted to see her own playful and joyful nature come out. Of all the foster mom dogs that have fostered in Breeze’s foster home, none of them have played with their puppies as if she was one of their playmates in the way Breeze did. Wrestling, tugging, chasing, tossing toys in the air, she did it all with her pups. We’re not sure what Breeze is mixed with, but whatever it is, she got the sweet and joyful genes.
Breeze gets along well with the dogs—large and small—in her foster home and is even good with the cats. She adores her people and enjoys free run of the house. She is never far from her foster mom and dad’s sides, and she has been known to sneak into their bed in the middle of the night. She is also acclimated to using a dog door to go outside. She loves treats—and takes them gently—as well as toys of all kinds, so she will find motivation in training by using rewards. She already has a fine recall, but is not yet leash-trained. She has nice house manners, respects boundaries, and quickly responds to direction or a gentle “no.” She is active, but not “border collie” active, and she can even be quite mellow.
Breeze likes meeting new people, yet she will bark at first if someone comes over she doesn’t know. She quickly stops when told to. She like riding in a crate in the car and going places. She would welcome living with someone who is home most of the time and perhaps someone who has another dog-friendly dog.
