I adopted Karma 11 years ago when she was 8 weeks old. Overall, she's been an amazing friend and companion through the years and it is very hard to put her up for adoption.
She's always been a dog who's said hello, very loudly, to visitors. She takes a quick minute to warm up to a new friend, but after a couple sniffs and a pet, she won't leave your side.
She's up to date on all her shots with her vet being the Animal Hospital of DePere. She also goes in for a haircut and pawdicure every month or two at PetSmart in Green Bay to keep her looking fresh.
Where Karma is at her happiest is in a consistent/calm home. What I mean by that is a home that doesn't have a lot of different visitors frequently and is fairly quiet. She takes a minute or two to warm up to new people, and when there's a lot of chaos, she tries to find a quiet, safe spot to hide. If there isn't a place to hide, she can get a little agitated. Since she's gotten a little older and we had a child, Karma gets agitated a little more quickly and is more protective around new visitors, which has had us shy away from having her home when they come. She is a herding dog, so she does nip to help steer you in the right direction.
Karma loves to go for walks and play fetch with her frisbees. She's been on numerous 5k and 10k races and enjoys taking car rides, boat rides, and anything else where she can hang out with the family. She will forget she's not a lap dog and take every chance she can to sit on your lap, even though she's about 60 pounds. Somehow, she knows when you're down in the dumps or if you're not feeling well and will try to snuggle at your feet to let you know she's there for you.
