Updates from Foster Home:
Pupdate 5: Beverly is a sweet pup who loves being part of the family! She loves to play with her foster sister Lucy, and snuggle with the rest of the family. We are learning exercises to help strengthen her hind legs and hips to help with the hip dysplasia. She also takes joint supplements daily. So far her hips don't seem to bother her. YAY! She is able to jump out of our 3 foot pallet fence to go check out our chickens and comes back when called. She knows the rules of our house and has found her place in our pack. Beverly listens well, especially when food is involved. Beverly is crate trained and loves her new larger crate where she can stretch out more. Come meet Beverly for yourself. She is a great girl.
Pupdate 4: Beverly went on her first camping trip with our family. She did very well meeting new kids and pups. Bevie loved all the wonderful smells when we walked around the campground. She didn’t even bark at all of the chipmunks running around. Beverly wasn’t interested in going in the lake with the other dogs. She was such a good girl.
Pupdate 3: We found out Beverly's sensitivity to touching her back-end is due to hip dysplasia in both of her hips. The vet's recommendation is to give her fish oil, glucosamine tablets daily and pain reliever when needed. Walking and swimming exercise are also recommended. As she grows, her hips might tighten up without future problems or she may need more extensive care in the future - only time will tell.
Beverly is still a happy go lucky puppy with lots of love to give. She is shy when meeting new people. Bevie is highly food motivated which makes training a breeze. She has mastered "sit, off, no and down." We are working on "wait, stay and place." She is potty trained and will sit by the back door when she needs to go out. We love her to pieces and know you will too.
Pupdate 2: Beverly is growing up, literally. She has the longest legs for her size. She still stumbles over them a little and reminds me of a frolicing fawn when she runs. Beverly has explored a few social events within the past couple weeks. She went to a loud parade where she met many new people. She sat by my side and watched all the people. She got a lot of attention from people of all ages. Beverly did wonderful at a sitter’s house over the weekend. She said they had a nice 2 mile walk with other foster pups. She even got to see her sister, Gretta! Beverly had more socialization with other pups and humans at the Fetch Bingo event at Karben4. (Last Monday of every month!) She rides well in the car and was worn out from winning bingo. Beverly walks great on a leash, loves everyone she meets, and is a sweetheart. She is waiting for you to meet her.
Pupdate 1: Beverly lives with two other pups. She will bark in her kennel at about 6:30am to wake us up. She goes outside with me right away. Then I feed her in her kennel and let her out again. Beverly has about an hour of playtime with her foster siblings until I put her back into her kennel until 12pm. I am home for lunch to let her out and play for a half hour then she's back in her kennel until 3:30. After 3:30 she is out and about playing with the family. Bedtime for Beverly is between 9-11pm. The longer she stays awake, the longer she sleeps in the morning. She is always let out to potty right before kenneling for the night. On the weekends, she takes a nap in her kennel mid to late morning if she has had enough playtime. Beverly is a sweetheart who loves being around her humans. She is good with kids, but still mouths and nips a little with her puppy teeth.
Beverly is a calm, chill puppy. She has medium energy level and burns her energy playing with other dogs. She walks great on a leash, staying by my side. Beverly does not have experience with cats. She has met and played with other dogs, ages between 5 months and 3 years. She knows when to back away from a dog that shows they don't want to play. She wrestles with her foster sister who is bigger than her. She also will chew on the same bone at the same time with her foster sisters. If another dog has something she wants, she will lay near them and bark at them. She tries to steal toys from our other foster, and usually gets it. Beverly goes into her hard-top kennel with a treat toy when we leave. She will bark for a little bit, but she's quiet when we return. She eats her meals in her kennel. Beverly is my shadow and loves to please her humans. She loves to snuggle on me before bedtime.
