This poor girl came to us from a high kill shelter. There are no words to explain the horrible condition she was in. As soon as we rescued her, she was taken to our vet.
At her former shelter, Tesha had a horrible life. Greatfully, 2 amazing people fell in love with her and were on a mission to get her out of that shelter. They told us that she is a wonderful dog with some quirks, and that it might take some time for her to warm up to you, but when she does she becomes your best buddy:)
She loves the hose and chases and plays in the water. Maybe she'd like a pool?
Based on her former interaction with humans and dogs, she is unsure of new people and animals in her space. A patient owner who will introduce her slowly to new people and dogs is reccommended.
When out for a walk, Tesha notices all dogs, squirrels, cats, etc. that she passes. The best way to keep her focused is to offer her a treat. She is learning to tolerate other animals in her space as long as she is rewarded with a treat. Tesha walks really well on a leash and she knows, "sit," "paw," and "shake."
Tesha has a big heart and we can see she wants to trust people. A home without children is best at this time. Tesha would probably prefer to be the only pet in the home .She has been training with other dogs in the house and is coming around.
She loves to play and run around, so a yard is required. A fence may be required after further assessment.
Dingoes can be a wonderful family companion, who can be both playful and gentle. They are equally affectionate with all family members, but will look to their alpha/primary owner for direction. Owners should be the pack leader, but also patient, calm and consistent with the training. Dingoes do not respond well to rough or aggressive voice/body language as they are very receptive to their owners emotions and cues.
Special Needs: Tesha aka Dingo came to us with horrible skin condition. We got her from Lake County Animal Shelter.
