ONYX (formerly Darling) is a very personable girl. Just a love, as in therapy dog material! 4 yrs. old and about 48lbs. she's a nice size. She's a calm and pretty gentle girl who enjoys getting pets and going for walks. She is strong on walks. Though she knows her heel command, she just can't resist when she see's a squirrel! She needs to work on this.
She's very sweet and likes to curl up in your lap. Sometimes a little shy of people at first, a treat quickly brings her around and convinces her that you're are a good person, though she's gotten much braver in her time with us and has enjoyed meeting people out and about and at adoption events.
She's been good with other dogs, can play well and enjoys saying hello while out on walks, but would prefer to be an only dog in her home.
Onyx has done VERY well with kids.
Though Onyx is currently fostered with a cat, she will chase and even grab a cat who is not very confident. For that reason, we'd like to find a home without cats, but if you are very experienced and have a very confident cat it is possible.
Though she is a calm girl, she is also very athletic and needs her exercise, running around the yard, jogging, and playing ball all suit her fancy. She also LOVES water! Maybe she could do "dock diving" or...?
Onyx is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and heartworm negative.
