During the day she gets frequent breaks every couple hours for the exercise, but easily goes all night 10p-6a without any issues.

In need of obedience training? Absolutely

Personality and additional information:

 Bowie is a sweet, spunky girl who will need an experienced owner to handle her 60# ball of energy. She loves to hike and is working on leash manners and other commands, but can be quite stubborn when she wants something. She would do well with another dog of same age and energy who likes to play-wrestle and can show her the household routine. Our 13yo foster tolerates her but doesn't appreciate her zest for newfound freedom when it includes jumping on or diving under him! Having survived on the streets, she is very independent and strong-willed. With time, training, love and security, she will blossom into a wonderful family member.
