Case Number: #5849
My name is Licorice and I am a sweet, loving little gal.
I love just about everyone I meet. I can be very playful and I enjoy toys, but I will give them up easily for a tasty treat. I even know how to fetch, and will return the ball to your hand! I tolerate all types of handling and will readily share my resources with people.
I get a little scared of unusual new people (ie. those who are limping or wearing hoods), so I may choose to hide behind you, and I have a little trouble getting over my fears. My adopters will need to patiently introduce me to new experiences that concern me so that I can get more comfortable with them. I look to my human companion for direction. I may get a little sad if scolded but I accept apology readily. Due to my shyness, I may be more comfortable in a household of tweens and up.
I tend to be stiff and uncertain around other dogs, because I haven't had a lot of experience with them. When I do play, I can be a bit over the top. To help me learn to play better, careful introductions and play dates with dogs who won’t take offense to my antics might be a good place for me to start. Ultimately, I’m really more of a people-centric pooch.
I don't know any basic commands, but I'm eager to learn for a taste of my favorite treats! I am proud to say that I walk very nicely on the leash. Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship.
