Pointer / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat) : : Female (spayed) : : Baby : : X-Large
This beautiful litter and there mom was rescued from rural Georgia. The puppies almost all have naturally bobed tails and the mom looks like some sort of hound/pointer mix. The puppies are giganitic at only 3 months old (25-30lbs) and will be much larger than the mom. The father must have been some sort of gigantic breed (masstiff, American bulldog, etc). They turely are a mixed litter and are a bit shy due to not having alot of contact with humans at a very young age. Another dog in the home helps bring out the puppies confidence and we would love to find homes with other dogs to guide them.Goose is the most Shy out of the litter and will need a special patient loving home without young children. This is what the foster has to say about her:
Goose (black and white):
It is my uneducated opinion, that whomever adopts her needs to be a strong, patient and dedicated person. She would be more comfortable with another dog, but she tries to dominate everything that moves in my house (that humping thing). Even after she is put in her place… she will do it again. She is fear reactive and will snip/growl with something as simple as trying to put a leash on her.. . slowly. When we first got her, she tried to protect her sister (growling when my son played with Maverick). She’s since stopped that (we try to play with them together and separately). But really seems like she will be a one owner dog – dedicated and protective.
She is very smart – watches Maverick do things and waits for our response. If Mav gets corrected, Goose walks away. She also responds to treats. Loves to play ball. Plays with our home pups as well as her sister. She’s doing great on the leash/ harness. Hasn’t had a single accident in the house (goes to door when she has to go potty).
I wouldn’t describe her as skittish – she’s not just apprehensive of people. She is petrified. (only of people, not outside or loud noises). It’s been a week and she will come near us if she knows we have treats and will play ball or tug of war. But any sudden movement (like standing up or trying to pet her) cause her to panic, run and hide. She would be content if people walked by and tossed food into a bowl and never touched her. She will escape any chance she gets. . . So we force snuggle her when she's calm
Side note – both dogs LOVE their kennel.
