What kind of home would be best for me: Stacy Dirk is a happy, very active puppy. She would be best in a home with another active dog and someone home during the day for physical and mental exercise. Stacy is learning the ropes of being a pet, but needs continued training on basic manners, house training, and walking on a leash. She would be wonderful for mature children (no children under 10 as she is very much a puppy and still chews... puppy teeth are sharp). She needs a fenced yard where she can run out her energy and play ball with her family every day. Stacy Dirk would love to be your hiking buddy!
What is my personality like: Stacy Dirk was abandoned behind a convenience store. Thankfully, the manager on duty is a dog lover and scooped this baby girl up. We cannot imagine how or why someone could abandon a young girl as full of personality and life as Stacy Dirk. But her past will not define her future.
Stacy Dirk is your classic happy, very active puppy. She loves everyone she wants to meet and is always up for an adventure. She's living in a foster home with other dogs that are small and large and does well with them. We don't recommend a home with cats as Stacy is just too curious and energetic for your average cat.
Stacy Dirk is learning all sorts of things in her foster home. First up was crate training. She's done very well with that and sleeps in her crate quietly at night. She is learning to walk on a leash, though she sometimes think it's a chew toy while she's walking. She knows basic command (sit and down) and is working on the leave it command. She absolutely loves toys, loves people, and is wide open energy all the time.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Stacy Dirk's estimated birthday is 6/10/2020
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
