Swirl ~ ADOPTED

Yes

REQUIRED

REQUIRED

Swirl is an adolescent pup, born 2/25/2017. She is a BC/Aussie mix who arrived via a shelter. Swirl showed some resource guarding issues on her temperament test so the shelter figured she would be better off in a rescue situation.

She is quite the little handful and bundle of energy. She responds very well to positive training but there is still a ways to go. Swirl would benefit greatly from some impulse control training along with some sort of outlet for her boundless energy. She is not for the faint of heart!

People often call the BC/Aussie mix a "Bossy" and you need to keep that in mind if you are considering this adorable little muffin for your household. If you give her an inch, she will take a mile. She is quite adept at "stealing" items from whatever may be in reach in the household - pens, paper, etc.

Puppy proofing is a must! Please don't let the cute face fool you!

Swirl will not be placed with kids. We do not know how she is with cats but suspect she would be ok with cats that are dog savvy.

Swirl is being fostered in eastern upstate NY.
