Personality Color: orange

Orange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!

Bio data

Ready to play some games?! I love brain games and learning because I’m a very smart girl! I’m sweet, sometimes timid, playful, and independent! I like chasing a ball and other toys that move, affection when I ask for it, exploring, and puzzles! I’ll need positive experiences, a cozy retreat, brain games, and object exchange for toys!

Kids: 6+, object exchange, independent

Dogs: Easily overwhelmed, appeasing, needs dog-savvy gentle dogs, slow intros

Cardamom has been spending some time in foster. Here’s what the humans have to say about her:

People: Cardamom *loves* meeting people, just needs a bit of practice keeping her paws on the ground.

Dogs: Not totally sure as I haven’t introduced her to any other dogs, but has been a bit leash reactive on walks/outings. It does seem to me more that she’s interested and excited about meeting/playing rather than fearful or aggressive.

Car: Good in the car with a seatbelt, likes looking out the window

Activities: Loves sniffing, chasing balls, chewing toys, learning/playing brain games.  She also loves playing “find it”–I hide a few pieces of hot dog/other smelly treats around the room and she sniffs them out. I also feed her by wrapping up her kibble in a towel and letting her pick them out, partly to stop her from eating so fast and partly to provide some mental stimulation. She would probably like other nosework too.

Training: Very smart and picks things up quickly. She knows sit, touch, paw, stay, and leave it (although still practicing the last two). Has improved a lot with her leash walking but is still working on it.

Crate: Sleeps in the crate in my bedroom with no problem. She doesn’t like being in the crate when people are up and moving around in the house, and whines/barks for a few minutes when left alone in the house in the crate but typically settles down quickly.
