Introducing Aurora: The Energetic Companion with a Heart of Gold

Large and lively, Aurora is a spirited lady who embodies a zest for life that's as infectious as it is endearing. In the short time with her foster family, Aurora has made significant strides in her training journey, showcasing her complete house and crate training and an eagerness to learn new commands. A fast learner, she has mastered sit and stay. Aurora's adoptive family will need to focus some training efforts on her penchant for chewing on clothing and jumping/mouthing when she gets excited. For this reason, she may do better in a house without small children.

Her heart of gold and affectionate nature shine through in her love for her people and her insatiable desire for playtime and cuddles. Preferring to be with her people than on her own, Aurora is more of a homebody than an outside explorer. That said, she has endless energy to play with and be pet by her people, and would likely do well in a home with a canine companion to romp around with.

Aurora's dynamic personality and energy make her a unique gem among her peers. From her love for hot dogs and food-motivated training sessions to her charm and playfulness that's impossible to resist. With patience, understanding, and plenty of love, Aurora is sure to captivate the hearts of her forever family and bring endless joy and laughter into their lives.
