Cherokee is headed home
Cherokee is headed home


Cherokee was an owner surrender, moving onto a better life with a loving family.  She lived in her previous home with a number of dogs of varying breeds and sizes.  She was not getting the attention she deserved, has had no guidance, training or a pack leader.  She is a blank slate, but eager to learn.  She has no leash manners and will jump on people for attention.  Her new family will need to commit to training, guidance and consistency as Cherokee transitions into her new life and into adulthood.  


Cherokee is a sweet, intelligent, curious, alert dog who loves to play.  She is learning to walk on a leash politely, and has settled in to her foster home and routine.  She has learned about horses, and seems fine with them.  She loves to play with a jolly ball toy, which she chases, chews, carries, retrieves, and generally adores.  She is doing well with sit (her foster keeps little treats in her pockets at all times), and will sit now to get her collar and leash on in the morning.  Housebreaking is coming along quite well, and she has been perfect since those initial few anxious days in a new environment.  She has explored all areas of the farm, and helps with chores such as going into hay loft to toss hay down to the horses, and walks in the back field to check on the bees.  Cherokee is going to be the dog of a lifetime for the right family - she is loving, and wants so much to be part of a family. Children recently visited the farm, and except for wanting to jump up (a habit we are working on breaking her of), she loved meeting and playing with the kids.  Ask to meet Cherokee if she sounds like a good fit for your family.
