Cricket was adopted in Feb, 2014 to a family with a male Chessie about the same age.
I was a 3.5 yr old Chessie mix, when I came into rescue. I had been living on a farm since I was a puppy but started bothering the chickens so I had to leave the farm. I love people. I love kids and I like other dogs – but I prefer PEOPLE. I am love being a house dog. My initial foster family had two kids and two dogs. I LOVED all of them, but I am not good with small animals or cats. I have lived with them but have to be monitored and desensitized. I moved into a different foster home when they had room for me.
I am house broken and could probably be loose in the house but my foster siblings stay in crates so I hang out in mine too. I like to explore the yard searching for critters and hanging out in the yard. I happily hang in my fenced yard for hours. I am getting better on the leash and on being walked – we didn’t do that leash much on the farm. I know basic obedience and eager to learn more.
My foster family has a cottage on the lake so I spend lots of weekends up there. I am really good at hanging around the cottage but I do like to go exploring in the woods. If I am at a home without a fence, it would need to be on a quiet road with a few acres of land for me to roam. I never go very far and typically come running when I am called unless I am tracking something. What I really, really want is a home with a family of my very own so I can snuggle. I love attention and just want to be loved by my people.
