Grasshopper is a lively, loving, happy female. Though her name was given when she was a puppy, she lives up to the name and enjoys jumping for play or treats. She is affectionate and enjoys being with her humans at all times. She has spent most of her life with her Cocker 'brother'. She is socialized and treats all humans and other dogs with respect and love. When walking on a leash she tends to pull a bit, but loves going for walks and visiting the local park. She has lots of energy for a dog who is 10 years old.
Grasshopper knows sit, stay, off, along with 'calm' - she has so much energy she needs to calm herself down. She also knows 'go potty', 'bedtime', and 'kennel' as well. She knows to go into her crate when it's time for the humans to leave, and of course loves to hear the word 'treat'. One of her favorite treats is ice straight from the freezer. You will not find her far away when she hears the ice tray cracking.
She lost sight in her right eye when she was about 1 year old, and had it removed about 6 years later, but she doesn't let that stop her. She has a little bit of arthritis hip pain, but an over the counter Glucosamine regiment removes all indications of pain. She recently had her teeth cleaned and was an excellent client during her Spa Day.
If not already, Grasshopper will be micro-chipped, spayed (if age appropriate), and up-to-date on her shots prior to adoption. If you would like to meet Grasshopper to see if she is a good fit for your home, please fill out an Adoption Application online.
