Brandi found herself on the streets in Little Elm at about 10 months old and was lucky to survive the streets. Fortunately, she was picked up by animal control and taken to the safety of the shelter, and then she was lucky enough to be pulled by Animal Rescue of Texas.
Brandi is highly intelligent and a quick learner. She mastered the doggie door in one day and uses it like an old pro now following the resident crew for important engagements outside. She has learned some basic commands (sit, stay, in the crate, come and knows the release command) and absolutely loves large dogs so she may have lived with them in her prior life. She also gets along with medium and small dogs at the foster home, and does not mind cats or birds. Brandi is EXTREMELY high energy and is constantly engaged in something. She loves to run outside, play with whatever she can find and goes into zoom and zip mode at certain times of the day. She loves to play with the resident Malinois and follows the lab mix constantly. She plays with toys and retrieves them from the toy box daily and strews them around the room. She does have a bad habit of nipping at the legs of the large dogs and is learning to understand it is not a good idea. Brandi has a very loud bark for her size and sounds like a large dog. She protects her home and will bark a lot if not told to stop. She may not be a good fit for an apartment because of her barking and energy level. She would also do best with another dog in the house as she loves the company and loves playing with them.
Brandi is quite intelligent, and that means she can figure out many complex problems, like how to get out of the yard or door. She has learned to stay until released at the door, b ut she constantly looks to see how she can breach the 8 ft privacy fence at her foster home, which isn't an easy feat. Because of her desire and curiosity, Brandi would do best in a home with a privacy fence of at least 6ft with no breach areas at the base (preferably concrete barrier as she is a digger).
She is spayed, UTD on her vaccines, HW-, crate trained, house broken, and a lovable pup who just wants lots of love. If you would like to meet this bundle of joy, please complete an application.
