Kringle was picked up by Newport Animal Control as a stray. She was held, but no owner came to claim her. No one was willing to adopt either and she was in danger of being put down, so N.A.C. called Steele Away Home and asked us to take her. We needed to board her at Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital until a foster home became available. Cedarwood also treated her for a bad case of worms.
Known Issues & Progress
Kringle is excitable and effervescent when first let out of her pen, but it takes only a short time of running and playing for her to calm down and be enjoyable to work with. With a little training she should become a good companion.
Kringle is high energy at first, but she calms down and is a sweet gal. Obedient too, she’s learning her commands.
Gets Along With Other Dogs
Good. She got to play with Josephine, got too rough, Josie told her to back off … and she did: calmed right down, then walked away to find something else to do (video below)
Kringle has been in the yard with all the house dogs, no issues with any of them.
Kringle and Lucy got a play time together (video below).
Kringle is gentle on her bedding.
