Workaholic by day, Couch Potato by night!

I’m Eden. I’m about 18 months old, I’m healthy, a bit nutty and love life.

I came into PRO about 9 months ago. I was dropped off at a shelter with a damaged tail and those that dropped me off (the father of my owner) told them they didn’t have time for me.

Besides having “Happy Tail” I had two vertebrae in my tail that were broken and causing me a lot of pain. It was decided that my tail would need a partial amputation, and that I would be left looking like my German Cousins. In all honesty… I probably have some of that German blood in me too.

Why is a young good looking girl still hanging around this place for so long? Well – I’ve had some chances, but I’ve decided that I’m gonna hang around for the right fit. I need a job – or I need a home where other dogs want to play with me!

I love life. I love people, I LOVE other dogs, I love food, I love balls … I don’t love cats. I enjoy car rides and walks, and other farm animals. There are chickens in my foster home, and while I loved them for a while – I’ve since learned that they bite with a hot wire, and stay away from them.

I love to play with other dogs. I go to daycare twice/week and exhaust my little body until I can’t play anymore. However, with this LOVE of dogs comes my challenge. I love most any dog that wants to play with me at the level that I do, but if you don’t want to play with me – then I might not like you today. I get frustrated when other dogs won’t play with me, and it causes me to get into trouble.

While I love to play, I do really well when other dogs aren’t around too. I’ve been an only dog in the house, and that suits me just fine too. I love to play ball and to hike. – I’m learning some basic commands and I’m super smarter than most of my colleagues. I want to be with my human, but that human is going to have to be savvy at keeping me busy. I would love the chance at flyball, agility, or hunting. Heck, I love farm life – teach me to herd and I’ll keep your ducks in a row.

I’m located outside of the Capital of this Country in the Virginia countryside– and while I can travel long distance, if I’m getting a sibling, I’ll have to be able to meet them first.

My house manners are coming along, and I love sleeping in my human’s bed.

I’m not afraid of anything. While I’ve heard the over-confident term used, how is that possible? My foster brother is just jealous that he’s afraid thunderstorms, and I’m not. I don’t dig, I don’t test fencing – I understand hot wire, and I do okay in my long kennel run during the day.

I’m looking for someone who is active, or has a big yard. Can teach me a job – or give me a playmate that keeps me occupied. I’ll be loyal and keep your entertained with my endless energy.
