Aphrodite is a 3 year old Lab mix. She was rip-roaring rowdy when she first arrived at PETS, Inc. and her family was thoroughly frustrated with her. She was a sweet dog but had no social skills. Now that Aphrodite has had some time in a home with an experienced foster family, she has learned how to be a great house dog. She knows a few commands (sit, shake, etc) and is perfectly housetrained ... but most of all, she's learned how to be a well-behaved family companion. The other dogs in her foster home have helped her learn what is acceptable for dogs and humans ... but Aprhodite has not learned how to interact properly with cats. Her instincts and agility when chasing squirrels make us wonder if she will ever be trustworthy around cats. And she is probably still a bit too active for toddlers.
