Justine probably lived her whole life in the basement she was rescued from, so she is afraid of some everyday household objects. If you take the time to introduce her to these scary objects she will release her fear of it. (Her foster can tell you how to do this.) With that said, she is afraid of NONE of the regular dog fears: fireworks, sirens, jack hammers. Justine will need a home that is calm, consistent, and will not reinforce her fear by attempting to comfort her when she is showing fear.
Justine is great in the car, and has been very well behaved with the kids she has met. If the kids are too hyper it will get her excited and she often starts jumping on people. Justine has been trained to ask for permission before getting on the furniture. (How cool!) She loves chewing toys, playing tug, and is used to regular walks. Her command repertoire includes: Sit, Down, Stay, Go Crate, Off, Leave It, and Touch.
Due to her rough start in life she truly appreciates the small things in life. She is over the moon on “clean blankets” day. She loves to spend time with her people and has even graduated to sleeping in bed with her foster mom and furry foster brother.
