Good with older children.

This energetic, playfully mischievous young Dobergirl came to us from a home where she had lived since a pup but where she had more recently started vying with the older female dog for top position.   This is a common circumstance and comes as no surprise in this instance, where the other dog was older and the former resident/top dog, and this young, now-maturing upstart with a dominant attitude tried to take over.  As a result, she has found herself without a home - probably not the outcome she was seeking but one that makes her a candidate for a home that’s a better fit.

Her new-found attitude is something she’s still learning how to manage, and she’ll need a home with an owner who has the savvy to finish her training so she can realize her full potential.

Now to be sure, despite her acting up with the other female in her former home, she’s a sweet, loving lap dog who has been more scared (initially) than anything.  She’ll bark with false bravado at a stranger approaching, but all she really wants to do is be made of and loved on.  In fact, our vet said she jumped up and gave him kisses on her visit with him!  At the same time, if other dogs here bark at her, she seems petrified.

The short of it is, this is a lovely Dobergirl who hasn’t quite figured out her place and needs a bit of nurture to build her confidence and help her settle in.  Clearly she is thrown off and disoriented by the change in circumstances and, in my opinion, is still trying to sort out her feelings and emotions, so to speak.  A little loving and patient guidance will certainly bring her along and help her settle into her newfound adulthood.

She loves to be a lap dog and is used to sleeping in the bed and lying close to her owner with head thrown back on a pillow, giving kisses to owner at night!  She loves kids and likes to play.  She especially enjoys Frisbees and balls, although so far she’ll retrieve but not bring them back (such a brat!)  

Volunteer comments:
    “At first this blue fireball seems to be a bit anti-social with her barking as you approach her, but this is just a cover up for her fear of the new and unknown.  Turns out as soon as she sees you’re one of the good guys, she starts wagging her tail and coming over for some attention and love.  I got a chance to take her for a short walk, and she did very well on the leash.  I stopped a couple of times and called for her and she came right to me and gave me a couple of gentile kisses.”

    “Isola is a shy little miss.  She’ll be a lovely family member if someone gets to know her and gives her love to build confidence.  She was very curious about the jolly ball but didn’t know how to play with it.  There’s definitely a lot of potential in this small, blue body!”
 
     "Isola is pretty vocal and was a bit shy at first.  It took her just a little while to warm up to us when we first arrived.  It didn’t take long though!  We just sat for a little bit and let her come to us.  She sniffed us, let us pet her, and she decided we were fit to be capable volunteers.  Haha!  She then gave us kisses.  The second time ML and I were out with her she came up to us right away for more kisses.  She’s just one that you can’t rush.  You have to let her come to you, but once you earn her trust, she’s all over you in a good way!  She’s a cutie pie"
 
                                
The discerning reader will see the wonderful Dober this is - one that just needs some guidance as she completes the maturing process.  If you think your home may be a match, and if you’re the perceptive, confidence-building type, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved, and come see what you think.  

If you should decide to make her a part of your family, I suspect there’ll be blessings all around.
