This sweet girl came into our care as a stray and is now looking for her forever home! Sidney is a little nervous with new people, but will warm up quickly! She likes leaning against you for scratches and is not shy to let you know when she wants attention. Sidney is good on the leash, but has a high prey drive and will pull when she sees rabbits. She knows a few commands already and is an intelligent dog who loves treats, so training will be a great way to keep her mind stimulated.
Sidney is looking for a loving family and will need a home that can provide her with plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation with continued training. Her people will need to work on leash training and managing her reactivity to small animals when out on walks. Sidney has not been introduced to other dogs at our shelter, but may get along with other medium to large dogs, given a slow introduction.
