Oh poor Mama (aka Sandy). She wants to be a part of a family so badly, but just hasn't been one of the lucky ones to have found a forever home. Thanks to Jodi and her daughter, Alex, Mama enjoyed a couple of play dates with Cole (thanks Alex for sending some of these pictures!). We wanted to see how Mama would do with a new canine buddy.

Mama had a blast with Cole, but definitely had a little more energy than he did (Cole is a very calm/laid back boy). She was not near as mouthy as she used to be, but she did try to entice Cole at times by nipping at his feet/legs when he wouldn't play with her. Therefore, she would do best with another canine companion that matches her active play style. She could even be an only dog as long as her human companion has time for her. She even got to spend the night to see how she would do in a new environment. Mama did great for the most part, but still needs to work on some house rules (not getting on the couch, not all stuffed things are toys, etc.). However, she is a very good listener and stops immediately when told. Sadly, her foster parents do not have as much time as they would like to work with her on her indoor manners (she is inside, but is crated more than they would like). Mama stills loves to go on car rides and truly will make a terrific family dog.
