Skye D6623 (was Winter)

Skye (was Winter) was adopted from us 12/8/18 but now sadly, she needs a new home due to adopter's work schedule change to full time and need for more active home with more people around and experienced guardian. She did go to some fun agility courses but not interested. She loves to run and needs continued leash training. Skye has been great with other dogs, but in past 2 years, she can be selective. She can be a bully to small dogs. So no small dogs. This is common for dogs as they grow up (adult) when they show more of personality. Over all, she has been great with other dogs on walks, socials, playing and training classes. Very people friendly. Busy-body type dog at home. Smart and loves dog puzzles. Does not fetch ball. No home issues nor chewing. She was in two prior foster homes before adoption with 2 dogs and a cat. At that time, she adjusted and can be with small dogs and cats, but now may want to chase and bully cats or small dogs. She has been the only dog at current household but goes to dog socials and fenced field ranch to run and play for 4 hours per day 4 days per week. Winter needs a very active home with people home and best with another active dog playmate (med to large dog). Brisk walks, hikes or jog for 1-2 hour or more.  Current home also uses a scooter to give her longer and faster walks/jogs. Winter has personality traits of Skye Terrier and Husky.  Need fenced back yard so she can run.

In Dec 2018:  Beautiful Winter was rescued from a crowded shelter. She was timid but warmed up. Now she is friendly, out-going, playful with other dogs and a sweetie. Winter has beautiful bright blue eyes!  We don't know what breed type she is mixed with to have blue eyes.  She is moderately active and need daily exercise (hour walk and playtime with another dog). Winter is very treat motivated and smart. She is ready for puppy training classes and socials.

She is very agile, smart and needs exercise. She can jump over a 3 ft baby gate! Maybe great dog for fun agility. Winter loves running, playing fetch and will bring the ball back. Best for home with attached yard and another doggie playmate or will take her to dog socials. She is learning and loves to follow her people around, so for now she needs someone home more or that will take her to doggie day care. She is social and very friendly. She needs lots of daily exercise and continued training.
