Smiling Risa!


Name: Risa      Best Guess for Breed: Shepherd / Shar Pei Mix

Best Guess for Age: 2 year old as of 9/18/19   SEX: Female

Approximate Weight: 35 pounds as of 9/18/18

Has Lived With: Other Dogs

Currently Living at:  Foster!

Special Adoption Considerations: Risa will need consistency and commitment to formal training since Risa has guarding tendencies; No kids under 15

Risa is looking  for: Risa would love a home with an experienced owner that has the time and energy to give her LOTS of opportunity for running and play time. Risa is INCREDIBLY intelligent and will thrive in a home that works through training with her consistently. She has lived at daycare and was a class favorite, so an opportunity to go to daycare to run and maintain that awesome socialization is a must. 

Risa LOVES her humans beyond belief, and is loyal to the bone. She does exhibit some resource guarding tendencies so will need an owner committed to working with that every day. 


What my foster says about me: Risa is such a sweet girl, the love she has for her humans is truly boundless. Running & playtime is 100% a must for this pup - we go to the dog park daily, but she could honestly use to go twice a day or to daycare. She LOVES other dogs and would probably be the happiest camper just running around in circles all day. She does require very strict boundaries in the home so she knows who's alpha and we have started working on her guarding tendencies in the home and have a daily training hour to work on her current commands and maintain them, as well as keep up mental stimulation. By far the most intelligent dog I've ever had! 

She will probably need a bit of a refresher on crate and housetraining but she's hoping her forever home can show her the ropes!

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken. We do work with all dogs on crate training.
