Hi! My name is Clara and I would like to tell you about myself. I am a 2-3 year old tri-colored female. I have a big patch over one eye and a curly tail. The rest of my fur is spotted and wavy. I weigh about 41 lbs. I am a quiet little lady in the house but run like the wind outside. I love to play chase in the back yard with my foster brother. I am quiet and am just learning to bark when I want my people’s attention.
I have learned a lot of things since I was rescued by ACES. I am trained to an underground fence. I am learning to use the doggie door but I am still a little apprehensive about that. I now know what a chewy is for and am starting to play with toys. I really like dog biscuits and chewy treats. Ice cream is good too!
I am house trained and pretty proud that I have never had an accident in the house. At night I wait with my foster brother until I get my biscuit and then I trot off to my crate and put myself to bed. I usually sleep about 8 hours.
I love to ride in the car and get very excited when Dad or Mom put on my leash. Sometimes I get so excited that my feet go in four different directions. Mama says I look like Bambi on ice.
I am afraid of thunder and loud noises make me nervous. I don’t like stairs but will go up and down the 3 steps to get in and out of the house. I prefer to jump those steps.
I like people and other dogs. I ignore the cat. I am a good eater. I’m not particularly birdie. I like kids as well as adults. The youngest of “my kids” is nine. I get along well with my foster brother and am sharing his toys.
When I get frightened or nervous I like to cuddle up to my people. There is nothing better that a human lap and a soft voice whispering in you ear that everything will be all right when the world gets too big. Give me a cuddle and I calm right down. Mom says I am a fast learner and Dad says I’m smart. I don’t like to be alone so would like a family who will let me go places with them.
