Bindi is a very large, very STRONG, sociable dog. She was transferred to the shelter from the TRU Vet Tech program. Bindi can be initially unsure of new situations, such as on walks, and can be more alert about her surroundings than enjoying the walk. She will fixate on objects if unsure when on walks and redirecting her attention can be challenging. Being initially unsure, she needs to be introduced to people and new situations slowly. Having a consistent routine or schedule helps her adjust. She needs a more quiet environment and gentle handling. As a guardian breed, she has a tendency to want to do her own thing and may drag you along if out walking and she wants to go in a different direction. However when walking, if you make an obvious stop, she knows that you want her to sit and look at you. She will need a guardian who can keep her busy so she doesn’t wander and get herself into trouble. She is quick to learn and will jump up on doors to try to get them to open. At TRU, she was introduced to clicker training and as soon as she sees treats and the clicker, she is ready to learn. She uses a gentle leader for her walks because she is so strong. She knows how to sit, lay down, and give a paw. She is agile and likes to jump over objects when asked. She gets along with some dogs but can be very selective and she’s had issues with both males and females in the past. Bindi likes to be with you and may get anxious when left alone. She will need to get used to spending time alone slowly a few minutes at a time. She loves to learn and does well with enrichment and mentally stimulating exercises. Bindi is looking for a guardian, preferably one with Anatolian Shepard experience, who is patient when working with her as she gets to know you too. She will be a loyal companion to a lucky
