Tootsie is an adorable and energetic 1 to 3-year-old shepherd mix. This pretty girl is super happy with everyone she meets, and loves to play with her toys. She pulls a bit on a leash, but it is manageable. She’s very food motivated and will sit for treats. Tootsie is with us because her previous owner said that she kept digging out under the fence. This girl loves to be close to people and was very well behaved during physical exam. She doesn’t jump up on you when she’s excited, but this behavior is easily correctable. She does well with most other dogs, and was curious but seems slightly afraid of cats at this time. We think the Tootsie will do well in most homes looking to adopt a new dog; her new family will need to provide adequate exercise and playtime, this girl would make a great companion for older children. She will need her family to be patient as she learns the roles and expectations in her new home. We think she’s probably be best suited for a home with children six years of age and older.
