Health Conditions: Megs is currently being weaned off of Prozac.
Housetrained? yes
Dog surrendered to Rescue because: Too hyper
Other Reason: Megs was removed from the litter too early and needs some help with her socialization. But she's a smart girl and we feel that we will see a lot of improvement with her in a short time.
Good With:
  • Other Dogs
  • Strangers
  • Cats
Dog Likes:
  • Water
  • Retrieving
  • Car Rides
Working Ability:
Working Comments: We know nothing of her working abilities at this time. But Megs loves to retrieve. We are not sure if she has been introduced to water - so we will be learning all of that about her as we spend time with her.
Behavioral Problems:
  • Excessive Barking
Other Behavioral Problems: One of the biggest issues her previous owners had with her was that when she was uncertain of something, she would stand back and bark. As she is just settling in and is not yet comfortable, we haven't had this happen yet and so will work on it when and if it becomes an issue.
Bitten? No
Bite Explanation:
Commands known:
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Come
Tricks:
Other Info: UPDATE: Meg has been in foster care for a week and we are already seeing improvement. The barking has not been an issue. She kennels when told to, she walks nicely on leash, and she pays the cats no mind. She is still scared of loud noises, things she doesn't understand,and quick movements. If you have time to show her that the world is not always scary and can be a lot of fun she will make a great companion. She has been water wading and appears to love it. At this time hunting is probably a No but again - with time, patience, and training she may well make a good hunting dog. Meg is smart,quick and agile. She has been tested off leash with other dogs and came when called. She just needs someone with a slow steady hand to teach her, She is a loving sweet dog who has never been shown the world is fun. She needs someone who can excersize her alot daily to keep her moving forward.Best of all she is a little girl,runt of the litter so we were told.But don't let her size fool you this girl has a huge chessie heart ! Please Visit our Facebook Page North Central CBRR&R for more pictures and updates on our dogs UPDATE-9-2-17 Meg is coming along nicely. Though a bit timid with new people and situations she has made great strides. She loves and I do mean loves the water and retrieving. Everyday her natural instinct become more obvious. This girl could excell at dock diving, agility, speed retrieves and with a all knowing gentle hand possibly be a hunting companion.
