Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Gracie
Gracie, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, is as sweet as they come. A 5-year-old female Rottweiler from Huxley, Iowa, Gracie has never met an animal or person she hasn’t loved. She is already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Gracie is super sweet and easy going dog, and she gets along with her foster home’s three dogs and cats. She is a submissive dog and will not engage in naughty behavior – in fact, she will run the other way. She runs and plays with the other dogs and is just as happy playing by herself by throwing a toy in the air and jumping around. She does love to be outside or cuddled up on the couch. She knows her basic commands and will go to her kennel when it is time to eat.
Gracie does best when she has the confidence of her pack around her. She is still jumpy but walks up to everyone to be petted and loved on.
Gracie loves to take walks and gets so excited when you pull out a leash. She does not need to be crated (but does well in a crate) and does not chew on things that are not hers – but she does love her plush toys and does not pull the stuffing out! She will also do just about anything for a treat! She has super-fast jaws that will catch a treat in the air lighting fast.
Her foster home is working on her manners when it comes to greeting her people when they come home. She just gets so excited that she jumps and cries with excitement. She has to sit before she is petted which is hard for her to do.
Gracie’s ideal home would be a couple or family that is fairly quiet and easy going. If people do visit, Gracie may remove herself by going and lying down in another room that is quiet. Her people will need to understand that she will need her space and not push her to be part of the action. Overall, she is a wonderful dog that will make someone a great companion.
