Good evening friends & followers. If your Monday was anything like ours, it was highly successful because you didn’t stab any rude person with a pen.
So let’s celebrate our success by pouring a beer (or glass of wine, or pitcher of margarita) and talk about one of Bounce’s adoptables - Mickey.
Mickey can be described as rough around the edges. Not only is she a bully breed (if you don’t like bully breeds, please click the ‘Unfollow’ button), but Mickey is also a complete tomboy. She loves playing hard with other dogs…like rough and tumbling hard…like WWE hard. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with this. But she will certainly require a home that doesn’t mind the occasional sound of stampeding elephants as her and her canine brother/sister play over a toy.
Unfortunately, Mickey doesn’t show very well at adoption events. This is not uncommon for many of our adult dogs. Events are high-energy, stressful, and confusing. In Mickey’s case, she doesn’t appreciate dogs walking by her kennel without causing a minor barking scene. Some would call this barrier reactivity, we like to call it being opinionated. While she is diligently working on filtering her opinions with training, she will occasionally have an outburst at our events, which understandably, discourages adopters from giving her a chance. (Please note, the very same dogs that she barks at behind a barrier later become her best friends when a barrier is not present.) Mickey is also not a fan of species from the feline (Felidae) family. According to Merriam-Webster, the family includes 40 species including lions, tigers, jaguars, cheetahs, cougars, bobcats, etc. So she would do best in a home without any of those.
Mickey is a huge fan of people, including children. She will happily whip out all of her basic commands for pats, kisses, and hugs. Lastly, she kindly requests that any future home provides balls and opportunities to participate water activities.
