Featured Dog for Adoption – DELIA!

 

Meet -Delia in Maine!

Delia is super smart!

Here is an update from her foster mom: She is a GREAT hiker and loves swimming in the ocean or playing in a stream. She is crate trained but would like to spend as much time in your presence as possible. Delia is very food/treat motivated so that can help with training. She loves mini carrots as a cheap healthy treat for training and she’s learning every day to be a more grounded member of the household, she just wants you to be her alpha so she can be your beta and by your side and out and about as much as possible. She’s been great hanging out in outdoor bars and coffee houses and loves saying hi to everyone who comes up to her. Delia loves kids but wants to take charge in noisy encounters to calm everyone down, so we think she should not be adopted to a family with small children. She’s been good hanging out in the shade while we enjoy a game of frisbee and also likes a good play chase around the house.

She’s a great dog! Super loving and comical! She is very loyal and loving but also independent. Delia has many dog friends and they play so well together. New encounters can be challenging, though she is getting more relaxed. Care should be taken in introducing her to unfamiliar dogs as she may challenge them, although if they show no interest she will back down. She would be an excellent companion for someone with another dog who likes to play and is active but also can be the pack leader. She enjoys being social but really blooms in a one on one relationship. She does well traveling. She’s a good couch reading buddy and would sleep in the bed if you let her and burrow under the covers.

She listens to commands but can be stubborn at times so she will need someone with patience to work with her on this. Strong boundaries and rules make her the happiest and most successful. Delia is just a strong willed little lady with a huge heart and little legs!

Delia aka Vima is four years old (born 5/27/11) and was returned to AHR due to a change in her former home. She is a fairly high-energy dog so she will need daily exercise to stay happy and healthy. Her ideal home would be with an active family who has a fenced yard and another dog to play with. Could you be the home for her?
