Funshine Bear has the sun on her tummy and a smile on her face. She's ready for a party anytime or anyplace. Funshine loves to play and tell jokes all the time, but sometimes forgets that there are times in life you must be serious.
Funshine was a stray at large picked up by animal control. She came in very thin and did not look well cared for. Despite a rough start, she came in smiling and ready to love everyone. She was immediately selected for our program due to her great disposition and super friendly demeanor.

Funshine is in great health. No meds and her coat is filling in beautifully. No known health issues at this time.
Medium size, cutest face and very nice built. Funshine has gained the weight she needed since her rescue and her coat is now nice and shinny. She's a doll!
Fostered in a home with 2 adults, 3 teenage kids and two middle-aged dogs. There is a large yard with privacy fence in her foster where she enjoys zoomies and exploring. Funshine is crated when no one is home and sleeps in a crate at night. Foster family reports no issue whats-so-ever with this friendly, outgoing and lovely little girl.
Funshine did great on 3 hour car ride to NE. She slept on backseat and even wandered up to the front seat to snuggle with passenger for a minute. She is loving all the attention from her foster family (both human and dogs) and is learning to cuddle on the couch. She's a little nervous of the bath, but easily calmed with belly rubs. Tugs a little bit on the leash at first, but settles down after a few minutes.
Funshine has quite a bit of energy, but is your typical pittie with zoomies for 10 minutes, then it's naptime. She goes into her kennel willingly and without accidents. She's curiously cautious about meeting new people, but warms up immediately after a pat on the head or a smell of the hand.
She is food motivated. Not aggressively, but seems to always be interested in food. We do feed her in a separate room than our other dogs and she doesn't mess with them while they eat. She patiently waits for them to be done, then will go eat any leftovers.
Behavior with people:
Funshine seems to love everyone she meets. Anyone that steps into the house is an instant friend. While on a leash she is cautious about those she meets, but after a head rub or treat, she is instantly at ease.
Behavior with children:
Funshine is learning to distinguish rough play with her foster dog siblings and fun play with her foster human siblings. She is responsive and eager to please. She can get a bit nippy with snacks or during playtime, but instantly knows that she wasn't supposed to do that and will try to make it up to you. She handles correction very well (i.e. jumping up on people or furniture), but doesn't really need it too much as she's very well behaved. Since she is still in a learning phase tho, we do not recommend a home with small children for now.
Behavior with other dogs:
After a slow introduction to both of her foster dog siblings (1 large young adult male Pit bull and 1 large older female American Bulldog mix), she enjoys supervised playtime with them both. Funshine may be a bit much for an older dog, but would do great with a similarly sized and similarly aged male. She isn't dominant, but holds her own.
Behavior with other animals:
She has not been introduced to other animals and has been too interested in playing with foster dog siblings in backyard to notice the squirrels and birds.
Funshine knows sit, down and roll over. She is crate trained and housebroken. We are working on a few more commands ("stay" and "go to kennel") and she seems to respond to treats best.
Funshine has a way of making you fall instantly in love with her. It may be her looks or her fun personality or her princess eyes, but once you meet her you will love her.
