Phoebe has also been enrolled in a beginner agility class where she has excelled! She knows all of the obstacles including the teeter, and we are working on weaves now. She has learned self control and will let us do a 3-4 jump leadout to perform some jump grids. We are thrilled to see her play with us on the equipment!
The CCD outbursts are at a minimum now. The floor licking is gone, the fly snapping and grass diving are gone. The only behavior which still happens occasionally is the high pitched staccato barking while looking up in the air. And we can usually tell what sets this off - it is loud noises! A pot falling to the floor, a door closing shut, and we also notice it happens just around her meal time and also when she just wants some attention.
We are so pleased with how this young lady has progressed while in foster care. She is also a very cuddly young lady and will be happy to sit in your lap and watch tv with you at night for hours. We think she is ready to begin the search for her forever home but she is welcome to stay with us for as long as that may take.
Phoebe will require an adult only home with a hard fence (no invisible/electric fences) and an approved, positive reinforcement training class will also be a requirement of her adoption
