About Tootsie

Adoption Fee: $250.00

Tootsie is an almost 8 year old, short haired, female St. Bernard. She is spayed, and up to date on shots. Her age shouldn't hold you back, she still has a playful puppy side. She's a Velcro dog and wants nothing more than to be with her humans all the time. 

She is one of our longest residents, and has been with us since June of 2022. She has shown significant growth in that time but needs a family who will be willing to continue working to build her confidence.

Quick facts about Tootsie: 

  • Spayed
  • Up to date on shots 
  • House trained 
  • Loves toys 
  • Puppy like and playful 
  • Loves learning
  • She's learning leash manners 
  • Dog friendly following slow interactions. She has been around dogs of all sizes.
  • Knows basic commands like sit, leave it, focus and off 
  • Spent time with our trainer 
  • Lacks confidence in new situations
  • Can be overstimulated easily
  • Doesn't like crates

How we are helping Tootsie gain confidence: 

  • Creating consistent expectations and routine using positive reinforcement 
  • Working on the basics to establish trust
  • Reigning in her focus to limit overstimulation
  • Acclimating her to a crate slowly, on her terms
  • Leash manners and how to walk next to someone
  • Threshold training to increase trust and confidence 
  • Ensuring she has enough time to burn her play energy, if she doesnt burn off the play energy she will get anxious

Her ideal forever home: 

  • Calm, active home 
  • Humans willing to keep her on a consistent, predictable routine 
  • Lots of play time 
  • A well-mannered, confident dog friend to show her the ropes
