Good with cats?: Unknown
Good with dogs?:Yes, No
Good with small kids?:Yes
Good with older kids?:
♥ Health Problems: No Dahlia has some anxiety/reactivity to dogs that she doesn’t know. While we’re walking and she’s on a leash, she’ll freeze if she’s scared and bark or lunge at a strange dog if they get too close. She’s less reactive with a human that she trusts (me, a regular dog walker). She is more reactive when being walked by a friend she’s staying with for a weekend when I’m out of town.

She’s never bitten another dog or person, but she has pulled over an elderly neighbor who was walking her. She has been bitten by other dogs on two occasions. I have introduced her to several dogs over the years using a deliberate introduction (some parallel walking outside and then time to interact off leash outside), always with good success. She’s stayed with friends who have dogs after a deliberate introduction without problems.

She is interested in cats and came from a foster home with both other cats and dogs. Cats don’t seem to want much to do with her, though.

She is fabulous with children. They can play on her and if she gets tired of the attention, she’ll lick their face so they give her some space.
♥ Behavior Issues: Yes Reactivity to dogs (see above)
Likes to bark at/ guard the door

Dahlia is super friendly to anyone who crosses the threshold. But when people knock on the door or are on the other side of the door, she’ll bark and run at the door, if given the chance. She’s thrown herself at the door when staying with a friend (she doesn’t do that at home). I usually put her in her crate if the person is a delivery person. Or put her gate up so that the person can get in before she says hi if they are staying.
♥ Fixed: Yes
♥ Fully vaccinated: Yes
♥ House Broken: Yes
Tattoed/Microchipped: Unknown

All About Dahlia

Dahlia’s Personality

Dahlia is super friendly to everyone that she meets. She likes to make eye contact with strangers on walks and get a few pets in if possible. She knows most of my neighbors and loves to get some attention from them. She likes to chase balls and frisbees, especially if thrown into the water. She loves to swim. She also loves playing catch on the land, but that’s rougher on her joints now. She’s very chill indoors, happy to sleep in the sun until it’s time for her walk. She’s 11 years old, but has puppy exuberance, especially when people are around.

She’s friendly and loves people.
She’s great with kids.
Watching her sleep in the sun.
She’s very low maintenance and chill indoors.
She’s smart, catches on quickly.

Dahlia’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

Balls, frisbees, tuff stuffed toys with or without squeakers (either way she’ll try to get the stuffing out).
Peanut butter, cheese, bananas, smelly dried fish dog treats, costco brand chicken rice and vegetable formula (her daily food)
She loves treats but has a sensitive stomach so small bits of people food

Cute Dahlia Story:

When my nephew was a brand-new baby and Dahlia met him for the first time, she reached up and licked his little bare foot. She’s a solid muscular dog, but also very sensitive and sweet.

Why is Dahlia Being Rehomed?

I’m struggling to give her the attention and care that she deserves because my emotional resources feel thoroughly depleted most of the time. I’m a mental health provider and spend a lot of time caring for others. I don’t have enough left at the end of the day to take care of her too.

Dahlia’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

A place where she will be loved, where she will get the care and attention that I haven’t been providing recently. Also, a home with folks who are physically capable enough to manage her. She’s strong so she may not be the best fit for elderly people, depending on their fitness and balance. A home with kids would be great.
