Mea is a 5 year old female Pointer Mix. She arrived on 28 December 2018. If you are interested in adopting Mea when she completes her training, please contact her rescue, Tara's House Animal Rescue at http://tarashouse.org/?page_id=10, then click on Adoption Process.
Week 1. Mea is adapting to her new surroundings. She is such a sweet girl, but the noise and activity in the housing unit make her a little shy and scared. Like Dorey, once outside she runs and plays with the other dogs. She is making progress becoming more open towards people and she will let you pet her without running away. She has already adapted and is confortable with her handler. Other than being nervous and shy, she really doesn't have any issues. She has no resource guarding issues and zero people/dog reactivity. She walks well on leash, and her handler is beginning to work with her on her other basic cues/commands.
Week 2. Mea is still having a little trouble adapting to her new environment. She wants to be near a person when inside the housing unit. She's shy and still a bit afraid of all the noise and movement. She's bonding well with her handler. She has no regative reactivity to people and plays well with the other dogs, but tends to want to hide from new people. But when she is outside, her tail is wagging and she is so happy. That's where she is happiest. She already knows sit and paw and she is very comfortable in her crate, which is her safe zone.
