About Navette

Navette A229166 Navette is a 3 year old female who came into the shelter on June 26 as a stray. Handling 7/22: https://youtu.be/MxLrpntkTwU Handling 6/28: https://youtu.be/7jJu7HqcXOs Handling video: https://youtu.be/8vz1O8_ozPA Leash Test: https://youtu.be/6pEf_LcpE-Y Navette, sweet Navette stole our hearts right from the start. She was standing in her kennel when we approached with squinty eyes and had a mangy smell. She was a bit nervous but let us reach in for her and coax her outside. She would flinch any time we moved too quickly and even when we did the hand motion for sit. Navette’s eyes are very irritated, one side more than the other and we think her vision is slightly impaired. It appears she is suffering from entropion and might need surgery to fix it. They bother her so much she will use whatever she can find (us, the grass, a toy) to try to scratch them. Navette sits on command, takes treats gently, and allows handling all over. She is a bit sensitive around her eyes for clear reasons but still takes any help she can get getting the gunk out.

Wham A229884 Wham is a 1.5 year old female who came into the shelter on July 12 as a stray. Handling 7/18: https://youtu.be/chcVBkyIH-o Handling video: https://youtu.be/3SfRfTDSHnI Leash test: https://youtu.be/LmwFVkaeBOc Wham is little but mighty. And she will let everyone know she’s around by announcing her presence wherever she goes. Wham is young and bounces during leashing. She gets frustrated in her kennel and bored, which isn’t a great combination for getting a dog out easily. Once the leash is on she’s a typical puppy. Wham is energetic but calms down each minute she gets outside. Go figure, the more exercise she gets, the more relaxed she becomes. Wham will jump for attention sometimes, another typical youthful behavior. This is where the small but mighty comes in. Her short legs have hops and she likes to slam her love on us when she gets excited. Wham already knows some commands and is food motivated. She loves to chase toys and can get some serious air when she catches a ball on a high bounce. We think her athletics would continue in the water, she loves the pool. She currently just sits in to cool off and will accept some snacks while she lounges, but would be an adorable swimmer in a larger body of water. Wham allows handling all over and will give affection back. The shelter isn’t going to be her stage to shine brightest, she will need someone to take a chance on her. show less
