Reishi is a beautiful, loving, and extremely cuddly 2 year old female mix. She is wonderful dog and also needs the right person to meet her working breed needs.
I got her in May from someone who got her from a shelter and couldn’t keep her due to her high prey drive. She loves all adult humans, but I don’t know about small children. She is a moderate energy working breed dog that is happy with a daily run and daily stimulation. She loves to work, is well trained, and loves to lounge too.
Reishi needs an owner who has experience with dog training and working breeds. She has a high prey/hunting drive and cannot be in a home with cats, free range chickens, or other small animals. She is also dog reactive and needs a patient and confident leader to support her in working on this. With training, her impulse control continues to improve. She has never aggressed on another dog, but needs a single-dog household for now and a large fenced yard.
I love her and am not able to meet her needs.
