Chopstick is an AWESOME dog! She is a gorgeous snuggle buggy Australian cattle hound/Australian Shepherd/boxer/other mix.
Chopstick was surrendered by her owner with six puppies; she was a doting hands-on mom but is now ready for her new life! She is shy with new people - I think a couple of abrupt environmental changes while caring for newborn puppies will do that to you!￼ - but once she warms up her exuberant personality comes out. ￼Is that a toy? Yay toy! Are we going to cuddle on the couch? Yay cuddles! ￼Is that another dog? Yay another dog! What do you mean I should not just lick the other dog’s face, doesn’t everyone want to lick faces?￼￼
She is a playful goofball who knows and is responsive to commands but may need a little work on impulse control. She will happily sit but it’s sooooo haaaard to keep that wiggly tush on the ground when there is a treat!￼￼
She is a play hard/cuddle often kind of dog and would prefer to be with her human.￼
Her ideal home will have a fenced yard - her athletic energy comes in bursts - and another tolerant, playful dog who doesn’t mind physical displays of affection. She loves her foster’s kids but may be a little boisterous for very small children.￼
