Hi, I’m Twix!
I was born around the end of October, 2019. I’m part of the Candy litter, along with my sister Reese’s and brother, Hershey. We are Dobermann/husky mixes. We may also have some German Shepherd ancestors, as my coat feels like a shepherd. I am probably around 40-45 lbs and still growing! We had a rough start in life- we hadn’t been touched by a human during our puppy socialization period, and then after we were brought to a shelter in Kentucky we ended up getting parvo. With vet care and proper nutrition, we have become strong and healthy! We are looking for a patient, dog savvy adopter who is willing to help us learn that the world isn’t such a scary place. We will also need a home with a fenced yard and would probably benefit from a friendly, confident dog to help us learn to trust humans. We will also need a house with no young children, as we can get scared if we feel trapped by a human. We need slow repetitions on a daily basis using positive reinforcement to help us learn new things. We love other dogs and we live with two cats, but we do tend to bark at the cats sometimes. We are still working on housebreaking but improving. I am still working on making friends with humans but I will now let my foster parents pet me, even without a treat. I am very food motivated too. I love playing with my brother, Hershey. I am getting pretty good at having my harness put on, and I will walk on a leash in quiet environments. I am a smart girl and know sit, down, touch, and watch me. We make small gains every day, and the right person will find my progress rewarding.
