From the Foster:
Jynx is an absolute sweetheart! She loves people and to be petted! She is house trained and crate trained, and has amazing house manners! She also knows quite a few commands, and is a fantastic learner. She's very responsive and eager to please. She also does great in the car.
A yard for her would be great as she loves to go outside and it would be nice for her to have open space to run and play. An apartment would be doable as long as the person is dedicated to exercising her mentally and physically. (Which is needed in either case, but might be easier/ more convenient with the yard). She will relax if you are relaxing and she's had other activity, but she's not a couch potato. She's smart, and will be happiest with someone who will work with her in ways that keep her mentally stimulated. She's very treat motivated and eager to please, you definitely get out the work you put in to her, and then some!
She can be startled by some random noises and is unsure about some really random things, (guitar, swiffer duster, a pop can, surprisingly not the vacuum) but a slow introduction to said random thing helps.
We're working on leash pulling. We haven't had the opportunity to get her together with other dogs off leash yet, but the rescue tells us that off leash she is dog friendly. We are currently working with her reactivity to other dogs while on leash, so she needs someone who will continue patiently working with her on that. Fortunately since she's a smart girl and motivated by treats, all she needs is patient direction and some time!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
