Shocka is a terrier mix around 2-3 years old. Even at only 24 lbs, she takes her job as a security guard very seriously. If you are a single person who would appreciate extra security as you walk, shop, or sleep, Shocka is your girl. She keeps track of activity around your home by keeping watch out of the window. She alerts when she sees another person or animal walking around your home. Any suspicious noise in the middle of the night, shell get up and secure the perimeter. Shell alert by growling or barking if she senses any person or animal who dares to come within feet of your home. If you share walls, Shocka might not be the dog for you. Shes a very agile, energetic, and loving dog. She loves walks and is potty trained, but she does not appreciate the cold. If its too cold outside, she wont choose to go outside to do her business, but shes really good at going on potty pads. It took some time, but shes now very friendly and comfortable around my other dogs and cats. She can get a little territorial around food, so it would be best to feed her in her crate where she wont feel threatened. She does well in a crate, but its not her place of choice. Unless shes eating, her crate door is always left open. I only keep her in a crate for an hour at most, but I think shell do well for longer as she just gets comfortable and rests until you let her out again. She can get car sick at times. She jumps when shes excited and loves belly rubs and attention. Shes very protective of her human which means she does not like when strangers approach, although some people earn a tail wag while most get aggressive barking and lunging. She tends to pull a little on her leash, but if you distract her or redirect, she will stop pulling. She loves taking apart her toys to see whats inside and if its edible. She loves to sleep tucked up tight next to her human and is one of the best feet warmers Ive ever known. Shes very playful. If youre looking for your own personal security guard with a lot of love to give Shocka is your girl!
