Nice to meet you, I’m Krystal! I am currently being fostered in Ohio. I’m about 2-3 years old, which my foster folks say is the perfect age – young enough to be active, playful and curious, but old enough to be housebroken, crate trained, and mostly well-behaved. I don’t mind being in my crate and sleep quietly through the night. I’m no longer teething, but I still like to exercise my jaws and need appropriate things to chew, like my favorite collection of squeaky pigs! I’m a very sweet, happy girl who loves playing with my toys – I know how to keep myself entertained - and I am sure my clownish ways will entertain you, too!

I am very intelligent, treat motivated, and eager to learn. I have mastered basic training, such as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘touch’, ‘here’, ‘kennel’, ‘share’, ‘where’s your bone?’, and ‘wait’ plus I walk nicely on leash at a heel without pulling! I am the kind of dog that LOVES to have a job to do. For this reason, I’d be an excellent partner for agility, rally, canicross, and running. I’m not as high-energy as many young pointers, but I do need regular mental challenges and physical exercise to bring out my best behavior.

Very young children won’t appreciate my enthusiastic and bouncy play style, but I would probably enjoy older kids. I don’t currently live with any cats, but my keen interest in small critters suggests that I would not be compatible with them. I would be fine as an only dog or would do well in a home with another calm, confident dog. Before moving to my foster home, I didn’t have much opportunity to socialize with other dogs, which makes me stressed around them. I am making up for lost time because I am currently living with LOTS of other dogs in my foster home. I have made huge strides and have gotten much better around other dogs, but I would benefit from someone who has experience with under-socialized dogs, or has a willingness to learn, and is committed to continuing my socialization training.

I am fully-grown and weigh 41 pounds. I am spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and tested negative for heartworms. I am currently on monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. I am well behaved for nail trimming, ear cleaning, bathing, and brushing.

My foster family looks forward to speaking with you and telling you more about me!
