The Teddy Bear
Girl • 9 years old • Sagittarius • Black • 32kg • Mixed Breed
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 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.
Usually very calm, Demi gets excited when fed or playing. However, she’ll sit and wait for your instructions the moment you give the command.
Slightly nervous around strangers, but easily controlled with food.
Easy to lead. She is seldom stubborn, but in those instances, it takes only a little persistence to get her to compromise.
Adapts rapidly to new environments, she’s more of a big-hearted dog. Even when startled she will do her best to keep a calm demeanor.
