Dog description

Laika is a very pretty dog - it's why I visited her in the shelter. But I adopted her because of her amazing personality!

Dog summary

Laika is a gorgeous mixed-breed dog who originally came from a local shelter!

Quirk

Laika has become extremely barrier reactive - she will bark lunge and growl at any dog on the other side of a fence...even the dogs she lives with! Once they're together, of course, she is fine.

Does best

Laika is very, very super tolerant of kids, strangers, and strange environments. She is perfectly content to go to public gatherings or relax at a brewery. She is so fabulously "chill" in that way.

Fun Story

Laika is an almost 9 year old mixed breed dog that I obtained from a local city shelter. She came to the shelter as a stray, nothing is known about her prior history. She is sweet, low energy when she's inside but can also run and hike all day. She has various phobias, including thunder, fireworks and fans. She has a ridiculously high prey drive and would like nothing more than to spend the rest of her days hunting and killing rabbits and other outdoor small animals, but she also gets along perfectly with indoor cats. She's respectful of dogs that correct her, but is a bully to dogs who are timid. She's incredibly tolerant of the behavior of her canine siblings. She's very intelligent, knows many behaviors, and has recently obtained her Rally Novice title through the AKC!
