Mica is a 7 month old pit bull pup who needs a forever home. She a little under 30 pounds so she's going to be a tiny girl. She was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, wormy, beat up and a fearful.
In the few days I've had Mica she has opened up and turned into a very solid little pit bull! She's a lover and a cuddler through and through, she wants to be as close to you as possible at all times.
She is very food motivated and SMART! She already has a strong grasp of what the clicker means, and is constantly pushing herself further to get the click. She is always willing to learn something new for a bit of a cheese and even works for boring old kibble! I think she'd be a stellar obedience dog. Food is more important to her then other dogs on walks!
Dogs: I'm unsure of how Mica will be with other dogs. So far my assessment is-she has no clue how to interact. Ashes is not the easiest dog for another pup to get along with-but so far I have been pleased with their interactions. There were two scuffles while they were playing, but I have yet to see that side of Mica since. She has a strong desire to snuggle and be close to Ashes, if only Ashes were more willing! She takes correction well and backs down with Ashes "claims" an object or food.
Cats: I think Mica is very workable with cats. When I first brought her home she was zeroed in and ready to chase them down. After only a few days, she can now be in the same room with them on leash and is far more focused on me then them. She even got smacked in the face a few times and backed down with her ears back. Its a definite possibility!
Mica is full of energy, but so far its easily expelled. I think she'll be a fetcher in no time! She walks well on the leash, but is still a little unsure about walks. Mica takes a minute to adjust to new situations, but I feel confident this will pass with time. Her ability to move on form "scary moments" is admirable! She responds to verbal correction and redirection very well, its not hard to get her to stop doing something undesirable. I gentle "ah ah" will have Mica running towards you asking "well what DO you want me to do?"
She is learning the crate is a positive place, but separation anxiety is going to have to be worked on with this girl. She is brilliant with work to eat toys!
She will go to her new home up to date on shots, with heart worm/flea preventative and spayed.
