Whitney

Hi! My Name Is Whitney

Whitney’s Story: Just a few months ago Whitney was abandoned and starving. Thankfully, good Samaritans came to her rescue in late January 2024. The vet determined she had no significant health concerns—except her weight. She was spayed and brought current on vaccinations, before going into a home where she has since been treated like royalty. Several weeks of good nutrition and loving care have worked their magic, and she’s now the picture of health and vitality.
 
Compatability: Whitney enjoys making new canine friends—particularly those of similar size/weight. She is totally in her element racing—and we do mean racing—around a spacious fenced yard with an athletic doggie companion, but she also entertains herself well outdoors when only human friends are around—doing zoomies, patrolling the perimeter and finding all the best sticks.
 
Whitney needs a fenced backyard where she could run and play off-leash. She would love a doggie sibling but would also be okay as an only dog if she has a way to get exercise and stimulation to help burn off some energy. Due to her size and energy level, she would do best in a home without small children. A home with people who match her athleticism and interest in being active outdoors would be just perfect for her.
 
Initially, Whitney may be nervous in a new environment, but it won’t take her long to get comfortable in her new home. She is a sweetheart, and her affectionate nature will shine through as she builds trust in those who show her love and kindness.
 
Training: Whitney is working on her leash training as well as basic obedience training. She would love to find a family who can continue to work with her on this. She responds well to the “sit” command and is beginning to learn other obedience basics and house manners. She appears to be a quick learner and is definitely eager to please.  
 
Whitney doesn’t seem to mind waiting in her crate for her people to come home. But she’s delighted to see them when they return! She exhibits apprehension toward getting in and riding in a car. Currently, it’s best to pick her up and set her in. Over time, she is becoming more relaxed while out for a ride.
 
She’s a little bit of a mooch! Whitney will gaze into your eyes and lean in for a neck rub—and she’ll soon be tugging at your heart strings!
