Hi I'm Fancy! I love to relax where the people and other hounds are and having my neck and head scratched is a close second. I like toys but I'm not compulsive about them in any way. I haven't been on many leash walks, because I have a fenced yard to play in, but I'm definitely into them! I have no major malfunctions! I'm a gentle, somewhat shy and reserved mama dog. I have no annoying personality traits (unless you are a cat or a small dog). I have a bit of an overbite, and a pair of perky, forward-facing ears. I am pretty quiet. I like to nap a lot. I am not food motivated, and so far, am somewhat suspicious of food in general. I like to eat it later in the day, opposed to my roommates. If I'm ready to eat, I'll eat like a pig, but if I'm not ready to eat, I'll look at you like you are putting a bowl of poop in front of me, which, by the way, I do not eat. I get along with everyone I have met so far, which is lots of people older than 12, and excluding the cocker spaniel. I remain untested in the small child arena.
I would rather not sit through a thunderstorm, but if the windows are closed it's more or less bearable. I pant and worry a little. I need a little more confidence on the stairs, but I'm pretty functional as it is.
According to my foster family and I quote: "Wow, what a great dog! Kind of a Mary Poppins--Practically Perfect in Every Way. If she starts to stray from perfection, she's easily corrected with a "no." I can't get a sense of whether she could be an only dog or not, we have no easy way of testing that. She sure integrated into our routine in just a couple days. She would get in bed if we let her (we don't) and would make an excellent snuggler. She currently sleeps with us and the other 3 dogs in the human bedroom (on a bed on the floor). She sleeps like a champ, no surprise there, though."
