Tulla is fostered in Valley, NE. UPDATE from her foster home: After having her for a week now, she is starting to eat out of a bowl instead of my hands, she must have been fed with a group of dogs because she has a very strong desire to eat out of the same bowl as my dogs. My shepherd is normally extremely protective of his food, except with his sister Bean and Tulla for some reason. She has no desire to chase squirrels or rabbits in the back yard. She has met 6 dogs since being with me, 3 are my moms, all super easy going, and 1 is the neighbor dog who is a young small yippy dog and got along with all of them. The other two being my dogs. She appears to be gaining weight, but will have her weighed at vets this week. We had a housewarming party today and had about 35 people over including about 10 kids. She was in her kennel but people went in to see her and she was silent and well behaved. Never made a peep. She is learning to like her kennel, although she likes no blankets and beds in there. She will destroy them. She runs and plays with our shepherd in the backyard and looks so brave next to his confident stride she follows him around the whole yard when he is out there, yet she loves to cuddle with my pm boxer. And she just learned how to jump on the couch. She does not like the stairs, only will come up by herself. Has to have a lot of assistance going down. She is the sweetest most well behaved dog. She is very smart, she knows her name, and several key words like potty, outside, bed time. She loves my mom and dad, even ran downstairs tail waggin to greet them. She is very very VERY patient with me giving her all her drops, and ointments and medicines. She does not have a mean bone in her body. I just can't say enough how sweet she is. She is terrified of leashes, she just freezes, she is getting used to her collar. I think, in the short time she has been here, that she would do good with children who are quiet and well behaved. She is not as skiddish as I have seen but she likes to be able to have her "safe spot" some where quiet that no one will bother her. She is a nervous pacer. Oh gooooosh, our main level can be walked around in a circle and she will walk for an hour if you don't tell her to lay down. I keep telling her she is walking off all the extra calories I give her. She has no food toy or bed aggression. She and my boxer despite having three beds and two kennels around the upstairs like to cram themselves into one kennel. She is so sweet now, I can't imagine how sweet she will be when she is healthy and pain free. She is going to be a very very good family dog, I think she would like a confident fearless dog, she seems to hold her head higher when she is with our shepherd. I don't know if she feels protected or she just likes his energy or what. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tulla is a breeder release to a shelter who knew she needed some TLC and reached out to NPBR to help her. Due to her life of being a momma she has some medical issues and will be getting fixed up in the next few weeks. She is a shy and timid girl that is leary of people. She has already started her road to healing and with the help of her foster family and fur siblings she will be opening up in no time. She will do best in a home with another dog. Tulla is a great example that adoption fees do not cover the medical costs when many of our dogs come into rescue. Please consider donating to getting her healthy and ready for adoption! My adoption donation is $ 150. Please see our website for the services our donation covers. Adoption donations rarely cover the expenses put out to make us kids healthy. Our boxers are fostered in homes across our 5 state region (South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and North Dakota.)
