Additional Details:

Shakira just arrived. She is a tiny 50lb girl that is an unusual blue brindle color. As tiny as she is, she raced 106 races and did pretty well getting up to the top A level. Her racing owner just decided to retire her even though she was racing well. Her last race was an A level race. Her sire is Speedy Trent and her dam is CTW Trivia. Shakira is 3 years old and will turn 4 on June 9th. She is pretty timid at first in new situations and places. She will shiver some and pull to get away on leash sometimes when walking in new places. Her shyness seems to be situational and not toward people though. She likes people and will stay close to her foster mom and follow her around. Very very sweet and friendly. She is not timid with other dogs at all and can be pretty bossy. She did pass her cat test and her small dog test. She plays nicely with other dogs outside and enjoys their company. She was a little growly with all the new dogs in her foster home at first but has calmed down and will share her beds and space with her housemates after the first week so it seems like she only has space issues right at first with dogs she doesn't know. The only place she is protective of is her crate and will growl when other dogs come by it, silly girl. Shakira hasn't had any accidents in her kennel so far. After the first night, she has been very quiet in her kennel so would probably be a good dog for an apartment. She seems to do OK when left alone so should be fine as an only dog. Cute girl with such a puppy face! And so tiny!
