Hello! I'm Laika.I have almost two and a half year since I was born in August/2010. By my name you can see I'm a female. Sausage is good at any time. But I would love to "eat" anything humans have on their hands including non-food stuff which drives my owner crazy! I like to play with balls and tug toys, but I don't like frisbees. I sleep, wake up, try to use my cute face to get human food , sleep again, do tricks , run ,pull my owner to a walk, convince everybody that I'm a cute well behaved dog, sleep more... Most of the time I'm a very polite dog, but sometimes I like to do exactly what I'm not supposed to: run very far away and don't come back when I'm too busy exploring, try to greet people and dogs even when they don't want to, pull the leash, destroy plants, jump on any kind of water (one time I even jumped into a cistern)... I'm extremely smart, a trick learn lover and very sociable. I'm a very shy and fearful girl, but I'm constantly increasing my confidence. The thing I most hate is when my owner gets stressed and angry around me... The thing I most love is to take a trip to any place: I can go next to my family in the car, know new places sometimes OFF leash and even sleep on the bedroom!! Some people think I would be better in Artic or any place that snows, but I generally enjoy brazilian heat getting into water... By the way my owner is called Tâmara and loves me very much! I have an increasing list of tricks : Paw and other paw Sit Down Stay Where's it? (Find stuff by smell) Jump Crawl Come Do not eat;eat Weave legs 8 Bang!
