Venom is an interesting dog. She's very friendly with people and bonds closely w/her people. She lived w/kids and was fine w/them, but she is a typical Dutch and can be mouthy and powerful. Given this we'd recommend a home w/teenagers and up. Venom is crate trained and doing well w/her house training. Venom is NOT good w/cats (high prey drive). She can get along with non-dominate male dogs of her size or larger but doesn't seem to do well w/other female dogs.
Venom came into foster care and I couldn't tell if she just never had any life experiences or if she was dropped on her head at birth or stepped on or something. She acts like a lot of very "common" things are brand new for her. Like fans, gates, walking through doorways, etc..she acted like she'd never seen stuff like this before. I took her swimming when she first came in and she didn't even try to swim- she just floated. No sort of survival instinct kicked in and told her to try to move her legs..instead she just...floated. She's kind of an odd duck. Her foster home has been exposing her to more situations and she's doing well, but I think she'll always kinda be like Dory on Finding Nemo.
Venom is not a detection/sport candidate (if you didn't already gather that...). She is highly food motivated and does like to play with toys, but there is that whole focus and retention issue. She'd probably love learning something like agility, obedience, rally, etc, though. I think she can do things (and using her brain is a GOOD THING), she just needs a patient home who doesn't give her unrealistic expectations. Venom is a great size- 40# and she's solid muscle. She'd probably be a great hiking/jogging/running/camping partner as well. Venom does not need to go to a home w/previous Dutch Shepherd experience but it will help greatly if you are familiar w/the breed.
