Aura is in foster care in Secor, IL.
Aura is very friendly and looks like she is smiling all the time as she is such a happy little dog. She has bonded with her foster Moms’ 14 year old daughter and follows her everywhere. She doesn’t just wag her tail, she wags her whole body! She loves to be petted and shakes hands on command. Aura is still learning a few things about normal life with a family instead of living in a cage at the mill she came from. She is still uneasy about jumping up on the couch but she will sit nicely and wait for you to lift her up. She is still scared of going up or down stairs too and hard surface floors give her a real problem! She will start inching her way across the kitchen floor by hugging the wall and then about half way through the room she turns around and finishes her march across the kitchen backwards! She is so cute to watch and in time will feel comfortable with these new challenges in her life.
Aura has not had an accident in the house for a very long time so I would say she is very close to being potty trained. She also loves to play with the other dogs by chasing them and she likes her soft, furry toys. She likes to tease the other dogs by prancing in front of them with her toy and then playing tug of war.
