Houlihan has been adopted!
Houlihan is a super smart and super driven dog. She’ll run like the wind through the woods. When she sees something exciting she wants to charge right in. Squirrel friend? She’ll join them in the tree. She is treat motivated but especially motivated by moving. She’s learned lots of commands. And YES, she has springs for legs!!
She’s not 24 hours of rocket fuel though. When the fun is over, Houli loves to have a short wrestle or play for her kibble before settling for a nap. The snooze button is one of her very favourite things. She has great house manners. She’s good with dog-savvy cats and could benefit from a balanced canine playmate or two.
A little background; Originally from Kentucky, Houlihan was adopted and then returned to Save Me. She tested positive for heartworm and we’re very happy it was caught early. She has finished her treatment and we expect her to live the full happy life she deserves.
When Houlihan was returned to Save Me, she was pretty nervous. Being a smart girl, she applied her natural take-charge energy to keeping the scary bikes, dogs or people away. In foster she has learned lots of other new and fun jobs plus calm things like crating and making good choices. She is super comfortable with her people and has learned to greet new people on the street and dogs on trails.
Houli is hoping for activity, fun and structure in her new home. All members of her family will be comfortable around dogs and eager to continue her learning. They will advocate for her inside as well as out so she can continue her progress. There will be no walking with a full Timmies cup or checking your phone with this girl! Mindful, aware and working together is how she rolls.
Her foster mom is pretty excited to teach her new family all about Houli, her tricks, and how to be her best person. Houli is fostered in the KW area and wants a slow transition so family members should live close or enjoy long drives!
