Pet’s Information

Pet’s Name: Laika

Biography:

Laika is a gordon setter mix and about 50-55lbs. We are heart broken to look for a new home for her after having her for nearly 10 years. She has lived in apartments, townhomes, and single family houses without issue. She's spayed, fully potty trained, up to date on vaccines and heartworm prevention, and chipped. She loves people and can't get enough pets or belly rubs!

We added another dog to the family in 2015 and they got along together great. We added another at the beginning of 2020 and something changed-- Laika and the other dog started fighting (not the new one, the old one). They had gotten along for years and we tried everything from behavioral therapy to medication with no luck. It's maddening-- Laika gets along great with the newest dog, all of our friends' dogs, and all of the dogs at the boarding place we use. Just not the one she lived with without issue from 2015-2020!

Laika does have some anxiety and does not like thunder or fireworks. She will let you know my aggressively cuddling you when she hears them (a thunder shirt really helps). Prior to the incidents in 2020, she took no special medication, but we now regularly give her anti-anxiety medication. She is not food motivated/aggressive and knows some basic commands (sit, stay, shake).
