Carly is a dog who loves her people and time on the couch with her family. She also enjoys taking walks, although she can get over-excited and want to chase squirrels, and bark at other dogs, and ohhhh a car!!! So, a home with a fenced yard to allow Carly to exercise and indulge her desire to chase those small fuzzy squirrels is a huge plus for this dog!  However, a home with a cat is likely not a match, we fear they resemble squirrels a bit too much in Carly’s book. Carly is house trained and has great house manners, she is fine being left for a work day and is past all that puppy silliness. She is even gentle with her toys! Carly does enjoy her chews, and loves a Kong but she can be protective over her food and high value treats so she will do best in a home without small children. Older children who can understand that some dogs like to enjoy their meals and special things in peace are best, and honestly we do not blame her wanting to eat in peace. If we thought someone was going to try to steal our food we would get upset too. Carly likes to be with her person and if she is not snuggling with you, she is usually found nearby, giving you her best sad puppy dog looks so you will stop what you are doing and pet her. Carly is very treat motivated and quick to learn; while she has been polite in public with other dogs in the past, as she is settling in she is letting us know she would prefer to be the only dog in the home – we understand, more attention for her! Carly really just wants to be someone’s best friend.
