This is my dog Goose. She's a beautiful, 60 pound, 5.5 year old pit bull. Her birthday is November 18, 2012. She loves all people (even strangers), and is good with kids (while she hasn't been around them a ton, whenever she is around them she plays well and is gentle and gives licks and let's them pet her. She's been around my baby and everything has been good so far). She knows her basic commands - come, sit, lay down, stay (mostly), out (to leave a room or area), back (to back up), go inside, go outside, drop it, take it, leave it, go to your chair. She does OK with heel, but could probably use some work on this command. She's an inside dog; she loves to be with people and gets sad if she is left outside or kept from them. She loves going for car rides! She knows the command "in the car/let's go for a ride", which is also a great way to catch her if she ever were to get out; just head back to your car and ask her to go for a ride. She likes to look out of the window during car rides, but is perfectly happy to lay down in the back seat. She walks well on the leash and if she does pull, a slow and steady tug reminds her that the leash must be loose. She loves to go for long walks or even runs or sprints. We use the commands "get ready, and then let's go" to begin running and "easy" to slow back down. She loves belly rubs in the morning or at night when she's sleepy, and will nibble on a blanket if the scratches are really good. But she's up for a good back or early scratch any time. She's intelligent, learns quickly and easily, and has got a good amount of energy (she loves to play tug of war, chase the laser, and occasionally fetch), but is perfectly happy hanging out in the house too. She loves splashing in kiddie pools in the summer and chasing the water hose. She also has a no additional cost training contract with in home training company Bark Busters for her entire life. She is spayed, up-to-date on all of her shots, and is currently taking the flea/tick/heart worm preventative to keep her healthy and bug free. She likes to sleep with people, but can be a bed hog and is just as happy sleeping on the couch. She is fully potty trained and uses a doggy door.

But Goose is not perfect. She is animal aggressive, which means she can't be with or around any other pets; no dogs, no cats, no birds or squirrels. Dog parks are an absolute no, and public trails should be avoided. For neighborhood walks, she has to be on her own sidewalk or side of the street. Close contact of any kind is to be avoided. When another animal does come close, picking up the pace and telling her "let's go" is usually enough to distract her and keep her moving. If that doesn't work, shortening her leash and urging her on works fine. Because she is so intelligent, and has an uncanny sense of time, she sometimes entertains herself by getting into cabinets or trash cans if left alone for too long. She also does not care for crates, and will do anything to get out of them. I should point out that I've been told on multiple occasions that Goose does not react to other animals are worse when I'm not around. It may be that she is simply overprotective of me.

Goose is a beautiful dog who is capable of so much love, but she is need of a forever home with someone who can understand her, and who is really willing to work to make her the best dog she can be.

If you know of someone that has a place in their hearts and home for her, please let me know. Please know that if there was any way for me to keep her, I absolutely would. If at all possible, I would love to facilitate an open adoption for her, so that I could see her from time to time.

Thank you for reading.
