Meet Bonnie, a friendly girl that loves to meet new people. At first, you might think that she’s a little shy, but within minutes, she will start to show you how fun and lovable she is.

Bonnie’s favorite thing to do is play fetch. Whether it’s inside or outside, she’s always up for a round. Usually, she will bring a toy to whomever she wants to play with, but she will also get excited when you initiate and throw the toy first. If you ever get the chance to meet her, try throwing a ball or toy to her. It is more than likely that she will catch it her mouth and then bring it back to you for more. She also likes to play with other dog toys; soft toys are for fetch, hard toys are for chewing on her own. Bonnie gets along with the resident dogs. She would love to play with them more, but she doesn’t always know how to initiate, and tends to badger them rather than play. She would be fine in a home with other dogs, but she would also do well as an only dog, due to how much she loves human attention.

While Bonnie is mostly easy-going, she does vocalize her needs through barking, she will let you know about a passersby, and alarm you about some noises in the yard. She will need some help with learning how to communicate appropriately. 
Shortly after coming to CRGI, Bonnie tested positive for Lyme. She is not showing any symptoms at this time, but she is currently taking doxycycline to reduce the chance of any potential effects.

Bonnie is a good listener and a quick learner. If she is doing something she shouldn’t, she will stop when told. When asked to get a toy, she will stop and think for a moment, then go and get the nearest squeaky toy. She responds to her name and knows a couple commands, like “sit” and “crate.” She is learning “stay,” but hasn’t mastered it yet.

Bonnie is able to jump in and out of a car. She rides nicely, and mostly just lays down during the trip. Bonnie is really good on a leash and enjoys going for walks. The only thing she doesn’t like about walks is not being able to meet every single person she encounters.

At night, Bonnie sleeps in a crate, and that is also where she eats each meal. She has no issue being in there, and will go in willingly when it’s time to go to sleep or eat.

Shortly after coming to CRGI, Bonnie tested positive for Lyme. She is not showing any symptoms at this time, but she is currently taking doxycycline to reduce the chance of any potential effects.

Bonnie’s sweet and gentle nature makes her the perfect dog for just about any family. She will require a fence, since she was known to wander off in previous situations.
