Introducing the I litter…Isadora and Iliana! These sisters are 4 months old, weigh about 20 pounds, and are full of puppy playfulness. Both girls are well-socialized and get along well with all of the dogs in our house. They can be a bit much for our older dogs but love to wrestle and run with the younger ones. They will play tug, go running after a ball, chew on bones, nip at fuzzy ears and floppy lips, and give chase for hours on end. When they finally tire out, they’ll curl up on the dog bed or sofa, usually by another dog or a person, and take a well-deserved nap. Since the weather has gotten a bit warmer, they’ve been able to spend some time exploring the backyard. Both girls are making strides in their housetraining. They do get up in the middle of the night for a quick potty break, then it’s right back to bed! The I litter has gotten off to a good start in their foster home. ACES requires families to attend a positive reinforcement puppy class with their adopted puppies.
Isadora is the larger of the two girls, weighing in at 22 lbs. She’s the talkative one. She’ll bark at the other dogs if she wants a toy and she’ll whine at the back door to go out. She’s also working on her setter Roooo! Isadora is the more independent of the two. She’s happy to hang out alone, and she’s been known to knock over the gate so she can run upstairs to explore undiscovered bedrooms. She’s a smart little cookie, learning how to sit for treats and watching the older dogs for behavior cues.
Isadora doesn’t let her puppy size stop her; she can keep up with the biggest of the dogs. She’s not happy about spending the work day in the crate, but she’ll go in with a milk bone as a reward. At night, Isadora is the first to jump up to claim her space on the bed. She usually settles down somewhere around your legs. In the morning, she greets you with puppy kisses, ready to start the day!
Steve, Teri and Miss Sydney Sauer hope that Isadora finds her furever home soon and fills it with happy setter Roooos!
