Persimmon is looking for an adoptive home who is willing to work with her on becoming a respectable member of dog society!
Persimmon came to us in very bad shape, with almost no fear and sores all over her body from demodex likely caused by extreme neglect. She was very ill for a long period of time but has almost completely recovered, with some occasional skin flareups.
Persimmon is, as far as we can tell, about 3 years old, and seems to be some kind of pit/boxer mix. She’s crate trained, has a solid sit, and some basic leash skills (that at this point aren’t solid when there are any distractions).
She is dog and cat reactive, but will move past quiet animals with consistent reinforcement/distraction. She needs to be crated away from other animals. We do believe that with slow introductions, positive training, and patience, she may be able to interact appropriately with other dogs.
She is an incredibly happy dog who will play for long periods of time, whether she’s on her own or not. She’s excited about learning new things (and good at it), but has a harder time adjusting in environments where there’s too much going on.
Persimmon is, at her core, a super sweet, funny, and playful dog with a terrific personality and will light up any room she is in.
