Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted June 19, 2015
Coat - short hair, shiny, soft, constantly shedding
Body type - Jack Russell body with chihuahua head and legs. She looks like she was put together with extra pieces.
Temperament - this dog loves everyone from those she sees daily to those who are walking up the street.
Playfulness - She used to be much more playful, but she has gained weight (and is now on a diet) and her idea of playing has changed from fetch to "throw the ball directly towards me.
Trainability - this dog is extremely intelligent... however she's also extremely stubborn. Just because she knows how to do something doesn't mean she will, she may instead figure out how to do a work around. (ex. she has her own bed for nights. Each night she jumps into bed but instead of going to sleep, she waits until we're asleep then sneaks out into the bed with us.)
Quirks - toes. Kretzie loves to do walk by toe licks. As soon as your feet are bare, she licks (one lick) your toes.
Health - she is extremely overweight. I've had her on a healthy weight dog food and try to get her to exercise as much as possible, she's still happiest in a chair watching tv or better yet, sound asleep.
