Sweet beautiful Panda is such a bundle of excitement when she sees you she gets so excited and loves her walks so much. Panda loves to get tummy rubs and loves human affection, her favourite thing is when she has a few human friends and they are all giving her pats and belly rubs. She loves the car and gets in and out calmly, and is very well behaved while the car is driving. She also sits calmly and still to get her harness off.
Panda was quite stressed and scared of dogs when she first came but has really come out of her shell and is so much happier offsite, again with non-reactive dogs that walk past at a distance and she ignores them. She ignores dogs onsite if they don’t bark at her but she does bark back onsite if she sees a reactive dog.
Panda is an exceptionally friendly sweet dog. Her tail never stops wagging. She suits kids 10+yo. She does jump up but in a friendly manner. Our trainer says: "Copes with kids rough and tumble play". She can be a bit reactive to other dogs on lead here at the shelter and is not suitable around cats. She is best suited in an environment where she can be walked without coming across too many dogs. Walkers say: “Walked well and long distance. Needed distraction to pass a few dogs but very good!”, “Very loving dog. Loved head scratches and back rubs. Reactive to other dogs and very alert to sounds of other animals”, “Walked well on loose lead when we passed majority of dogs". "She walks calmly on loose lead, and ignores cars and dogs as long as you don’t get too close to other dogs. She loves people and loves being patted and loves her belly rubbed." "She loves off site visits to the beach and showground with no reaction to other dogs. Tail wags when she sees other people”. She has a short coat and weighs about 22kg.
