I am fostering a puggle named Bailey. She is about 10 months old andis a real brat. She was in 5 different homes or shelters before she came to us and has not had much success with obedience training if she has had any training. She is not housetrained and has been real stubborn about being trained. She prefers to go on the carpet instead of outside. We have been keeping her crated unless we can be with her and she seems to be holding everything instead of going outside to potty. She can also get somewhat aggressive when she plays and wants to do a lot of mouthing with her playing. When we play fetch, she goes after the ball and brings it back but doesn't want to give the ball back without doing some nipping. She also gets into a crazy mode where she starts running in circles around the livingroom jumping on sll the furniture. We have fostered and found good homes for 5 dogs all of them lab or goldn retriever mixes but this one is the worst which is funny since she is much smaller than the othes. We started fostering last December. Our last dog, Saber, was a golden retriever that died last summer at the age of 11 and the house was so quiet without a dog so my husband and son that lives with us and I decided to try fostering for a while. We have two cats and my husband says only one dog at a time so I can't adopt a dog and still foster. Any help you can give would really benefit Bailey since I don't think our dog coordinator is going to keep trying to find a place for her. There are a lot of other dogs that need to get into a foster home.
