Alexa has to bypassed a career and has decided that retirement is what suites her the best. She is on the very shy side, so we are taking our time getting to know her better. Alex will need another more confident canine(s) to show her the ropes. Could this little peek-a-boo fit into your life?
Alexa has come a long way since her arrival to Allies, but she is looking for a family with a lot of patience to help coax her out of her shell. She relies on other dogs in her foster home to reassure her when she is in new situations or meeting new people, so a home with other, more confident dogs would be best. Alexa is practicing her confidence by going on short walks around the neighborhood to experience new things. She has gotten more comfortable walking around noisy traffic and other dogs while on these walks. She has also discovered her love of squirrels while out and about.
When Alexa is comfortable in her home she loves to run around the house playing with toys and trying to get the other dogs to play with her. Once she tires herself out she is happy to sleep on a dog bed with everyone or in her crate when she needs some alone time.
Alexa has not been around too many children, but based on her reactions to certain things she would do better in a home with older children or no children. She needs to be with a family who understands that she will need to be left alone during the first month or two she is in her new home. A calm and quiet environment in the beginning will be something she will need in the beginning. She observes everyone around her and will decide when she is comfortable enough to start being around her new family more. She also takes cues from the other dogs in the household. If they are getting pets and belly rubs she will come and see if that is something she wants too.
Things will be difficult for both her and her new family in the beginning, but when giving time and a little bit of patience both you and her will be greatly rewarded. When she is comfortable she becomes a playful, affectionate girl with a little bit of a mischievous side. Being able to work through those difficult moments in the beginning will be well worth it in the end.
