Stevie & her sister Kya, were brought to the SPCA after being abandoned. They would love to be adopted together however, if they had to go to separate forever homes, with time and extra attention we believe they could thrive individually.
Stevie is very sweet and social. She loves her sister Kya, but can be reactive towards other dogs in the shelter. She can get easily over excited, therefore she will need a guardian who can provide lots of exercise and outings. She may want to chase moving things like bikes or animals. Good obedience and a confident guardian is important.
Stevie can get anxious when left alone for long periods of time. Her future guardian will need to be prepared to work on this slowly to get her used to spending time alone. Stevie will relax when she is with her sister Kya.
Stevie loves going for walks. She will need a home with a secure yard and nothing under 6 ft because she has a history of climbing fences when left unsupervised.
We don’t know if Stevie has lived with other animals besides Kya, but we do know that a home with no cats or small animals is a must. Stevie has previously lived with children.
