Anja is a smart and sweet girl with a whole lot of enthusiasm for life, as most puppies do. She is relatively soft, but still needs someone who is willing and able to take the time to teach her all things a good doggy citizen should know, take her to places like dog obedience and who can provide her with consistent rules from day 1. Anja will benefit from positive socialisation around people, kids, cats, dogs, stock, chickens and the like. She loves attention and will thrive in a regular, stable home environment with lots of daily outings and adventures thrown in to keep her life interesting.
As with all Pound Hounds Rescue dogs, Anja must be allowed inside the home (including to sleep) so she can really be part of the family. She will also require a comfy bed, quality (puppy) food, and regular flea and worm treatments.
