Melody came to B-Squad after being released from a commercial breeding facility. This big girl is learning what love and trust is all about. She can be a little nervous at first meeting new people or going to new environments, but she has come a long way already! She's very affectionate and will give you the biggest silly smile if you scratch her rump. She loves other dogs and would do best in a home with another dog that can continue to teach her what being a dog is all about!
Melody enjoys going for walks around the neighborhood and just watching people or things that are new to her at a distance. She really enjoys learning new cues or tricks to get food. She wants to please but has so much big puppy energy still to burn. Mouthing is one of her bad habits when she wants to play, but once she is reminded a toy is a more appropriate chew thing she will redirect.
Melody is house trained. She asks to go outside by either ringing a bell at the door or standing right in front of it looking back and forth to the nearest person. She loves running laps in the yard once outside! She will bark while playing and as anyone approaches the house. She eats in her kennel. As soon as you pick up her dish to fill she runs to the kennel to wait patiently. She enjoys playing fetch with toys and plays tug with the other dogs at her foster home. If she takes an item she shouldn’t have a disapproving look and a hand held out will usually land the item back in your hand.
Melody knows sit, down, place, and off. She is currently working on learning stay and leave it. She has had a lot of practice and reinforcement for loose leash walking. She stands nicely for her foster on a grooming table for brushing and nail trims.
