Halle, born on October 30, 2009, is an independent little deaf lady who loves to explore. This liver beauty is a tomboy with a solid build, who makes lots of noise to go along with her rough and tumble play. She’s very athletic and rarely slows down except to sleep. She could win medals for her broad jumps, high jumps, sprints, and marathon energy. She’s also a great little wrestler and could play tackle in the annual Puppy Bowl. At 6 months, Halle remains full of puppy pranks and playfulness. She loves to play but older dogs can tire of her persistence.
Halle is observant and determined; if she hasn’t discovered it, then it’s not worth discovering. You can almost read her thoughts as she tilts her head, looking around to see what captures her attention next. Halle bonds closely with her family. She can be timid in new situations and looks to her people for courage.
Halle loves to sit in your lap and give you kisses, but it isn’t long until her kisses turn into a bite on your nose while she’s trying to leap onto your head. The girl just can’t sit still. Life is too exciting to waste time being quiet. When she’s tired, Halle likes cuddle, sleeping in your lap. Halle will usually sleep all night, in bed snuggling close to her foster mom.
Halle is making progress with house-training, although she still has a few accidents. She’s learning the hand signals for sit, eat, off, wait, no, and good dog. Halle loves to chew; it’s hard to convince her to give up the treasures she finds, whether it’s a stick from the yard or your favorite shoe. She’d rather make a mad dash around the house and yard, trying to protect her find. She is beginning to learn to trade for a treat, albeit reluctantly.
Halle is too exuberant for a home with cats or young children. She will do best in a home with another friendly, patient, canine sibling and a family that doesn’t have to leave her home alone every day. Adopters will be required to attend a positive-reinforcement style puppy class with Halle. This enthusiastic pup has lots of potential. Consistent training, patience, a good sense of humor, and lots of love will help Halle grow into a loyal family friend.
Robert Pelc and his favorite setter girl Daisy hope that Halle finds a wonderful forever home to explore soon!
