We have known GRACEY a long time. She was in this same foster almost 6 years ago. Sadly her dad passed away shortly after she was adopted, and mom recently moved to assisted living. She is ready for a new chapter in her life.
GRACEY is an active gal who likes to play ball and run around the yard. That is a good thing as she needs to stay active to keep her weight down and enjoy the food and treats she very much enjoys. Even in her younger days she was overweight. Since coming back to rescue she has lost 18 lbs and looks really good at 46 lbs. Her medium tri-colored coat is easy to maintain.
GRACEY LOVES car rides! Open the car door and she jumps right in and travels well. GRACEY likes to cuddle and will give kisses, though isn’t sure that’s ok. She knows basic commands like sit, down and shake. Her recall is ok but needs some work. GRACEY loves drinking from the hose, which can make watering a garden a little bit of a challenge. If she’s good and listens while watering, we allow her to “play” afterwards and she has a great time chasing and catching the spray.
GRACEY is loyal and attentive with both foster mom and dad. She gets along well with all the dogs in the house (we have four others right now), but she would prefer her dog buddies to be laid back. She is way too obsessive with the cat. In order for GRACEY to be the best she can be she needs a cat-free environment. We also recommend against small children. She warms slowly to strangers but once comfortable with someone she seems fine. We have not known her to dig or chew anything but bones and toys.
