This happy girl is Phoebe, a 2-years old pit/pointer mix.
As you can see, Phoebe already knows ‘sit.’ She’s very food motivated, but isn’t pushy about getting treats all the time.
She is very good at this “looking solemn and dignified while waiting for a treat” thing.
Though from time to time she looks a little goofy. This is her “is this a treat I hear?” look.
One nice thing about Phoebe is that she is very gentle, which is amazing if you consider her rough history- she came into the shelter emaciated and neglected. She loves affection, but isn’t pushy about it, and is very trusting and social.
It’s very hard not to like Phoebe when she’s being goofy or has a big smile on her face.
She loves going outside for walks/training/play.
You see that little bit of goofy puppy there?
Though I don’t have photos to show for it, Phoebe also loves to be petted- she sometimes leans into you and knows to hold still while being petted.
In short, Phoebe is a charming, mellow dog and would be good for those who are looking for a very nice dog without the problems of puppyhood.
Oh, that’s not all. She gets along very well with other dogs and would make a great canine companion (though she would not mind getting all the attention to herself :).
I’ll leave you with this silly photo of Phoebe (can you tell how much she enjoyed her session in the exercise pen?):
