Meet Persephone

Persephone is a sweet, smart, and sassy girl who gives lots of kisses, plays with her toys, snuggles, and occasionally gets the zoomies. She loves her people with her big Pittie heart and greets them (and tells them she wants something) by holding a toy in her mouth and wiggling her bum and tail.

Persephone knows over 12 commands too, including boop where she licks your nose. She is house-broken and extremely treat-motivated. She's a great home-office dog, normally taking a nap both after her morning and afternoon walks. She can be crated during the day if you work outside the home. She does not need to be crated overnight and prefers to cuddle with you on the bed but will sleep in the crate or on a dog bed or sofa.

Persephone had a short-term foster where she did well living with a similar sized neutered male. She also lived with another smaller, female foster dog. She can be dog selective and should meet any other resident dogs prior to adoption. Persephone would most likely see cats or other furry pets as moving toys.

Persephone came to the shelter with fear-based behavior concerns, which can make her slow with trusting new people. Since being in a foster home, Persephone became clicker trained, has overcome many obstacles, and grown in both her own confidence and trust in her handlers. The phrase you can't teach an old dog new tricks does not apply to Persephone, as her reactivity levels have drastically dropped. She now even enjoys walks on the bike path and sniffing around Antrim Park or the woods.

Persephone would thrive in an environment with an experienced dog owner who is willing to continue with her training. Persephone has a great relationship with the staff at All Paws Retreat, where she gets her nails trimmed and works with a trainer to overcome the last couple of hurtles. Since learning more about Persephone's specific needs, Persephone quickly made vast strides that increase her overall well-being.
