All about Cheesecake

Cheesecake is a 1 year, 1 month old female Medium Mixed Breed who weighs 20 pounds.

Age: ~ 1 year
Weight: 20.4 kg (45 lbs)

A bit about me:
- Unknown history with cats and small animals
- Unknown history with children, older kids recommended due to nervousness
- Unknown history with other dogs. Potential for select other dog in home pending successful dog to dog.
- Adopters must be willing to work on confidence building at dog's own pace and comfort level as well as all other potential behaviour modification using force-free, science-based, positive reinforcement training methods.

Hi there! My name is Cheesecake and I'm just as sweet as I sound. I was found as a stray, so my past is a bit of a mystery, but I'm looking forward to making the most of my future with my furever family! I love getting pets and ear scratches, but I can be a little nervous when I meet you for the first time or am faced with new situations. That doesn't mean I'm not interested though! I just don't have many social skills yet, but I promise you that I'm more than happy to receive your affection once I warm up to you. I will definitely need help building my confidence using positive reinforcement - AKA tons of treats, praise and pets! I think I would do best in a home with older kids who will be able to read and respect my body language, especially when I'm uncomfortable. I'm also still quite young and would love to have lots of mental and physical stimulation. Well, that's all you really need to know about me! I hope I've convinced you. Come find me today!

Note that many dogs do not reach full size until they are about a year and a half old. The weight listed here is the dog's current weight.
