Hi! My name is Hershey! I am a young, energetic Aussie! I love everyone I meet and I love to jump, so I’m going to need some guidance from my people. I know how to sit when my foster mom puts my leash on. I am house broken and crate trained, but I don’t love being in my crate during the day. Overnight I sleep very well in the crate As soon as my foster mom gets up, I get to go outside and then I come inside for breakfast. I was eating in my crate during my heartworm treatment but now I get to eat in my foster mom’s room. I get a little possessive over my crate and my food, so I get to eat separately from my foster brother, Boomer. After breakfast, I get to go outside again! I love to go for walks but I pull on the leash until I have done my business and then I walk very nicely. I love to run and I am very fast. My foster home has chickens and I really love to run at their area and make them fly!! My foster family has to come get me to make me stop. I also love to sniff under the shed and the deck because I just know there are little critters under there! I check every time I go outside. My forever home should probably not have a cat… I don’t show any interest in playing fetch, so running is my main outlet. I just run and run!!! After we spend some time outside, I get to go back inside and I sniff everything. I don’t chew or get into things I am not supposed to but I will probably discover counter surfing at some point. That’s because I am really smart!! I do settle down and I am able to take a nap as long as my foster mom is close. I love to snuggle and have my belly rubbed!! When my foster mom goes to work and I have to be in the crate, I whine a lot. I could probably be trusted not in the crate but there is always someone from my foster family home so I haven’t gotten to test that yet. As far as my foster brother Boomer is concerned, I get a little jealous and sometimes get a little snarky about it. We have had one disagreement and I like to let him know that he is not allowed near my crate when I am in it. So, that’s my typical day! I’m a very good girl and I love to snuggle! I will need some training and guidance but I am very smart and will pick it up really fast!
