She is fine with children, adults and other dogs but she may hide in her crate initially until she feels comfortable with them and then venture out to see them.
Her best friend here is Barney, also listed for adoption http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/11232716-huntsville-alabama-rat-terrier-mix, an 11 yr. old rat terrier/JRT and they explore and often relax with one another. DeeDee is definitely more active but has adapted beautifully to a low activity household. Loves her treats, chew toys, rawhides and bully sticks.She comes a-runnin' when ever she hears the treat bag.
She would do best in a home with not a lot of loud activity (initially) just due to her shyness. She has never attempted to react when stressed but is the type of dog that retreats to her comfort zone and withdraws to her crate. She is a the kind of dog that can be in your home but is never obtrusive as she is able to be independent. I love her dearly and she may be slow to bond with her new family, so she would do best with someone who has patience. DeeDee could be best described as a dogs' dog as they are her best friends.Dee has been fostered with large and small dogs a loves them all. She doesn't exhibit any separation anxiety and isn't scared of storms either. She loves to run and zooms about when off leash. She would love a yard to explore as she is intrigued by wildlife.Her barking is minimal and usually at other animals/people when passing my home. As I stated before it may take a little time to earn her trust but she is well worth the time. Anyone who has spent any time with her can't help but fall in love. She is one adorable pup!
DeeDee is currently fostered in Huntsville, Alabama., but transportation can be arranged to the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic States.
