About August

August is a very loving, hyper-active, cuddly, playful pup who I adopted when she was around one years old. August loves to play with her toys, go for long walks, and cuddle up on the couch and snore for hours. She listens well, though sometimes her excitement overtakes her. August has a crate, but I don't put her in when I'm away as she does fine hanging out in our small apartment. August does well with most other dogs, sometimes just doesn't know when she is annoying them ( does better off leash with this). There has been only one occasion where she did not get along with another dog. August does not do well with cats AT ALL, and is very upset by squirrels. August uses a head collar when walking, due to her strength, she doesn't usually pull, but in the case of a squirrel appearance, it's best to be safe. August is a very endearing pup who is loved by all who have known her. Still- she needs someone VERY comfortable with dogs, she's a lot to handle in the energy department, she is very "puppy-like" in energy and personality.

    I have had people watch August in the past who did not give her enough "out" time, or expected her to ask in some way, and so she had accidents. August does not normally do this if taken care of properly.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    Sometimes the energy of children is too much for her and she can end up jumping on them. My young nephews love her, but know not to run or play rough around her or she'll start barking/getting upset. She gets along with kids but it needs to be a very controlled environment, with children who can understand her boundaries. She loves them though. I would feel most comfortable if she were not around kids when I am not there.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    See my info about August for more about this. She loves other dogs- she just sometimes annoys them. Only had one bad experience with another dog- but this other dog does not like dogs- both myself, the owner, and the trainer believe August was just reacting.
  • Gets along with cats: No
