Hi, I'm Glory! I'm such a snuggly, fun girl, once you give me time to trust you. You see, I've had a hard start to my young life, so I'm a bit shy and fearful. I would do really well in a quiet, calm home with a settled adult that has time to give me plenty of attention. I don't do great with extra people and a lot of commotion, so I would love to live without other pets or children.
I love to be out exploring, sniffing all the smells, and getting some bursts of energy out, but I'm also a great lounger. I have some hip dysplasia, and a knee that gives me a little trouble, so my foster mom gives me lots of brain games that I love to do, and I don't have to be out in the scary world.
They say I am a mix of Lab and Pit, and a couple people that know Greyhounds, thought I look like that too. What a great combo-- but it will take a good leader and experience in my forever home. I have a high prey drive, and I am extremely fast, and can jump real high.
As I've been coming out of my shell, my foster mom says I'm becoming a "real puppy", because if I'm not lying right next to you, I'm into something, or wanting to play hide and seek.
I'm a pretty good listener, but you have to be sure you're the boss, because sometimes I like to push the limits.
Because I'm still a bit fearful, I have a hard time telling my foster mom when I want to go out, but I try by climbing on top of her. We are working on bell training, but that's a little scary too.
I know sit, come, and kennel-up, and we've been working on stay and down.
I think if you're a bit of an introvert, and want a great companion pup, I would be the best girl for you!
If you want to meet me, reach out to Ruff Start, and let me show you my stuff.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
