    Please check out Sorrel! This beautiful girl came from the reservation and as you can see she has the BEST ears! Foster mom calls them radar ears, because they go straight up when she's interested in something. 

    Overall Sorrel is a young girl with your typical needs like basic training, learning not to jump or be mouthy, crate training and walking on a leash but she is learning more and more each day! We are currently working on sit right now. She's pretty accepting of the crate too with just some slight complaining when she first goes in.

    She loves everyone she meets (people-wise), once she gets over some initial shyness. She is still a little anxious and wants to be within sight of foster mom or the resident dog all the time. She ignores my cat and did fine when meeting the resident dog at the park. Slow intros to new animals is always best to ensure a smooth transition! 

    Sorrel is learning how to walk on a leash and is doing great with it! Foster mom is currently using an easy walk harness with her. Also, she can be a bit reactive when seeing other dogs on her walks. With continued training this should get better! 

    Overall, Sorrel is a wonderful girl who is excited to finally have a family of her own. Does that sound like you?!

    Sorrel is from the Cheyenne River Reservation in SD. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
