GRR Number: 17-002
Type of Turn-in: Owner Surrender
Age: 12-15 months
Dallas’ (AKA Dilly) previous owner turned her into GRR after she jumped their 4-foot fence and was hit by a car, dislocating her hip. Her owner could not afford the cost of the surgery to help his dog, so he made the ultimate loving gesture and turned Dallas over to GRR where she could get the help she needed. Dilly’s leg surgery and rehab are done and today, she acts as if the leg surgery never happened.
Personality: Dallas, is out-going, high energy and loves people. She is a smart girl and learns very quickly. Dallas loves to play, dropping a toy at your feet letting you know it's time to play fetch. She loves her stuffy squeaky toys, too, thrashing them about or running up and down the hallway with them. Dilly happily runs through the yard and can easily leap large flower pots in a single bound.
Dallas is completely housetrained and crate-trained; however, she’s also fine when left alone in the house.
Dallas is very high energy and quite fearless. She happily runs through the yard and because of her leapoing prowess, she would do well with agility and/or nose training.
She is independent, sweet and happy --- she gets so excited when her foster family comes home she jumps up on the bed or couch. That’s against the rules in her foster home, but she will obey the "off" command and get right down.
Ideal Home: Dallas needs an active family --- older kids are fine. . Dallas would do well as an only dog or with another well-mannered dog. Dallas recently spent two weeks in a Board and Train program so her adopting family needs to continue working with her. She could also use an obedience class or two, but these classes are a great way to bond with a new family dog and can make a family so proud on graduation day!
