Meet Cora, a friendly, gorgeous 3-4 year old redhead who is ready to find her Forever Family. We don’t know what her life was like at the backyard breeder’s that surrendered her, but she likely had pups at least once before she was spayed. Cora is incredibly sweet and gentle, and adores being brushed, petted, and loved on. She enjoys the company of the 2 other submissive dogs in her foster home, and ignores the resident cat. It’s clear that she had no training before being rescued, but is a quick learner – especially if treats are involved! She adapts quickly and benefits greatly from routines and structure. Cora was extremely thin when she arrived, and gets very, very excited about food. She responds well to gentle corrections and positive reinforcement, and will need to continue learning basic obedience in her new home. She walks nicely on leash, and rides quietly in the car once she’s helped in. Cora enjoys parading around with dog toys, but destroys soft ones. She’ll occasionally try to chew soft materials such as rugs and towels. Higher-energy dogs tend to get Cora wound up, so a calmer doggie sibling would be best in her adoptive home. She’d also love a home where someone is there much of the time. She loves lounging around the house but is ready for action at a moment’s notice. In fact, it’s hard to sneak out of a room because she usually wants to tag along. Cora sleeps quietly in an x-pen in the bedroom at night, and is crated for short periods (2-3 hrs.) when her foster family is away. Cora is very sensitive to the energy levels around her at any given time, and reacts in kind. She is also afraid of storms. She will do best in a quiet home environment, with children who are a bit older, and either as an only dog or with other laid-back, submissive dogs. She has loads of love to give her special Forever Family!
