Hello folks! I’m Mika. I’m 8 years young. I absolutely love going for long walks. I’m very good on a leash although when I spot another dog, I can easily get distracted. Thankfully it doesn’t last long as my foster mom is good at redirecting my attention. Exploring gopher holes and checking out new scents are also my favourite activities.
Do you like to play fetch? I sure do! I’m very good at bringing the ball back to you so you can throw it again, and again and again. And when you get tired (and you will), don’t worry, I know how to throw my own ball and can even catch it. Pretty talented, eh? My talents don’t end there. When you meet me, ask me to show you my army crawl. My foster parents were impressed and so will you! I’ve also mastered - sit, stay, lay down, shake paw, high five. So it’s safe to say I’m super smart. Nothing pleases me more than to show off my wide-ranging skills and multi-tricks to my family and other admirers.
I love to snuggle and won’t go on your furniture unless invited. I’m content just being around you, sitting at your feet and gazing into your eyes until you give me some attention and pets. I particularly like belly rubs and having my paws rubbed. I don’t really like other dogs that much. They make me nervous and I sometimes growl when they’re too close. If I’m going to be around other dogs, it’s best if you muzzle me. For that reason, it’s best if I’m the only dog in your family and I don’t have to share your love and attention.
I’m well behaved and perfectly happy being home alone when my family’s at work. I haven’t had any exposure to little kids, but I’m sure it won’t be a problem as I’m gentle and loving around all of the big people I’ve met.
