Cora has urinary incontinence which is well controlled with a medication given once per week. Her condition is sufficiently controlled that Cora had free run of her previous home with no issues. On 5/21/21 Cora had a dental cleaning as well as all her vaccinations.
What kind of home would be best for me:
New adopters should plan to attend a basic training course with Cora to help in forming new bonds and provide the leadership she needs to build her confidence.
What is my personality like: Cora has a big heart and accepts new humans easily into her world. She has great energy for hikes and walks which she needs daily to help with anxiety. Let's talk about her anxiety - Cora can react when there is a lot of noise or sudden changes in her environment (such as a child moving quickly). If Cora was human, we would call her high-strung and recommend lots of yoga! She may shake when she meets someone new. Cora prefers a calm, slow approach from new people. When she is recognizes the calm energy, she will approach out of curiosity and seek affection.
How do I act when I first meet new people: She may shake when she meets someone new. Cora prefers a calm, slow approach from new people. When she recognizes the calm energy, she will approach out of curiosity and seek affection.
Cora will bark at strangers such as through the drive-thru window. Cora is reserved in general, but will react with barking.
Tips and Tidbits: Cora's birthday is 03/21/2015 Cora has a urinary tract abnormality since birth. It has been treated successfully with a weekly pill for 4 years. The medication is called DES (diethylstilbestrol) which can be obtained through a local vet. Please check with your vet for cost for this medication. At 1800petmeds, it is $31.50 for 10 weeks.
Cora has a condition called a hooded vulva which does not raise concerns at this time.
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.
