Dog of the Week: Rhea

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi, my name is Rhea but my foster mom also calls me “Ray” and “Ray Ray.” I am about a year and a half old and have the typical young dog energy. I love to play… I play well by myself but also love a good game of fetch or tug of war with my people. I get along with other dogs and try to play with the dogs in my foster home but they’re kind of lazy. My foster mom took me to doggy daycare and I did great there… I had so much fun! Sometimes I get the zoomies and race around the house or yard which always makes my foster mom laugh! Once I’ve burned off some energy, I like to hang out with my people, snuggling and getting belly rubs! I am house-trained though, as with any dog, I may have an accident or two as I adjust to a new environment. I’m also kennel trained… I might occasionally whine just a little if I’m in the kennel and know my people are there but I settle down pretty quickly. I might also whimper or bark when I get excited or want something but I’m otherwise a pretty quiet dog. I know “sit,” “shake,” and some other commands and am pretty easily redirected if I’m ever doing something my people don’t like. Because of my energy and history of jumping 4 ft fences, I’d do best in a home with a 6 ft fence or people committed to taking me on regular walks on a leash and monitoring me in the yard. I’m about one and a half years old.
