    Aster is an energetic, 8-month old, 20 lb chihuahua/dachshund/unknown mix who needs a patient, gentle owner who is familiar with, or willing to learn about, handling reactive dogs.  She is very food motivated and wants to work, so has quickly picked up more than 10 commands and enjoys agility-type exercises.  She has a runner's build and can go for miles.  Aster is not very cuddly since she is usually "tuned in" with those large ears to any noises coming from outside or sights through the windows, and she will warn you about all of it!  Aster is leash reactive to other dogs although this has been much reduced with training (Summit Dog Training - Reactive Dog 101).  Aster has never met a human she doesn't like but initial meetings with other dogs can be contentious.  She prefers small dogs to large dogs and currently lives with one cat and another small dog.
