#209 Tess, Female, Six Years Old
Tess is very sweet and loving – she loves to give kisses and paw for affection. She’s very laid back and is happy just to lay by you. Tess is between 5-6 years old and is an Aussie mix with unique markings and a beautiful coat! She’s spayed and UTD on shots. When the weather is nice she is happy laying outside soaking up the sun, but her favorite is time inside spent with family. She gets along just fine with her foster dog brother and sister as well as her foster kitty sister – and kids too!
Tess has received basic obedience training. She has also received a one-on-one special training session with a Karen Pryor certified trainer. Tess knows sit, down, come, gentle (when taking a treat by hand), go to your crate, and outside.
Tess tends to have separation anxiety and does much better when her family is home and with her. She is crated during the day which she does not prefer. We are working on playing crate games to get her better adjusted, but ultimately she just doesn’t care much for it. She is given a Kong filled with bite sized treats to give her something to do and look forward to.
Tess gets excited when she sees people she knows or other dogs outside. If she gets loose by accident she may run and can be difficult to catch. When not in a fenced area she should be leashed for now. Tess loves to go for rides in the car, she does very well and is a great traveler!
Overall Tess is a sweet, cuddly loving girl. She would be fine having ALL of your affection to herself ❤️
