Hello, my name is Holly. I am a smart and gorgeous young adult female Pit Bull/Lab mix who loves people, once I get to know them!! I have not met any little people and I am fearful of strangers, but I do warm up quickly especially when treats are involved! Frankly, I’m a huge people-pleaser who is very treat motivated so I am told with exercise, consistency, and treats (ok, I added the ‘treats’ part) I will be the best-behaved dog my new family has ever had!
My foster family has been taking me to doggy school. I am learning obedience commands for come and focus. We are also working on my confidence and my stranger danger fears. I have a fear of men and unfamiliar people that approach me that we are working on. We are also working on polite greetings for other dogs, so it would be best if I am the only dog in my forever home. I am a work-in-progress and would love my forever family to commit to continuing dog training, enrichment activities and perhaps daycare a couple of times a week to keep my mind and body busy.
I’m told I “think” I’m a lap dog, that is wrong because I KNOW I’m a lap dog and I love to give hugs and kisses. That said, teaching me that I’m too big to jump up and give someone a hug, is important. I also enjoy getting pets, eating treats like Kongs with a little bit of peanut butter, (YUMMM), solving puzzle games, playing with other dogs my size or larger, and learning new things. Speaking of learning, I truly am quite brilliant in fact, I am told that I am “beyond smart” because I pick up on commands very quickly and I’m a great listener even when my people says “no”. I know commands like, “come”, “leave it”, “go potty”, and I learned “sit”, “down”, “wait”, “leave it” and “shake”. I even know where in the house I’m allowed to be and I am potty, leash and crate trained so you can clearly see that I am a prodigy! I will enjoy pulling you around the neighborhood on leashed walks but admit that I need to get some play time in before we go to ensure my focus is on walking rather than playing with everything I see (LOL). This is where a wonderfully fenced yard where I can romp, and play would be great (hint, hint)!! I like running around the yard with a soccer ball – perhaps you can teach me to fetch when the weather gets warmer? As for the crate, I do enjoy crate time when a Kong is involved otherwise, I may cry and holler a bit before I settle in! I did meet a cat and my people discovered that I have high prey drive so a forever home without cats would be best.
Anyway, are YOU ready to welcome a beautiful 50lb lap dog into your life? I have an enormous heart that is overflowing with love that I dream of sharing with YOU! It’s been often said that I am a “dream dog” so if you are patient and promise to love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me then I think you and I are meant to share our lives together. I promise we will have the best adventures together!! Kisses and Hugs, Holly
