My story

My story

Demi is a big black-haired girl. With her birthday falling at the end of November, she’s like the best parts of a Sagittarius and Capricorn combined in one dog. However you look at it, Demi is a great furry companion. She is mature, stable, friendly, well-behaved, and feels a sense of responsibility for her home and family. All these characteristics combined make her the perfect dog!

Demi

Personality

Demi is like a big, friendly, warm doll, with big paws. She loves being pet by others, and will crawl into your warm embrace when she wants to be pet! Typically cool and calm, the moment you try to play with her, she will get excited and become your joyful playmate. Demi gets along well with cats, dogs, and children. Even when she encounters a rude dog, she knows to warn them first and will not bite. During general physical examinations (teeth, ears, mouth), she cooperates calmly. Demi is simply a gentle, big dog with a loving personality.

My Behavior

My Behavior

Demi is calm, stable, and not overly enthusiastic. She is the ideal dog for families with plenty of room for big dogs or who can frequently take her out for exercise. Demi is most relaxed when she is playing. At other times, she is calm and accommodating. Her tail typically droops, and she doesn’t have a distinctive way of showing when she’s happy or relaxed. However, after playing with Demi, she’ll beam at you with a huge smile.

My Behavior

Tolerance Levels

At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These oservations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.

Demi is friendly to strangers, as long as they first get acquainted through some simple gestures.
