Sweetie is as her name says, sweet. She likes to cuddle on the couch or for a nap with me but has yet to initiate the leap to the couch on her own. She is very curious and alert to any noise, which she must investigate. She is a bit fearful of strangers when they pass on the street or enter the house. But once they get settled she does as well especially if she realizes that she has met them before. She will hesitantly approach while barking and then back away. She has yet to meet children at my home. She enjoys the other dogs in spite of their hesitance with her initially, and while at first was merely curious about the cats has begun to think of chasing them as a game for which she has had her nose soundly batted a few times. We are working on this at present. She likes to lay on the couch, in a bed or even on the floor but is a younger dog and does have more energy than my old crew. While everyone else is napping she is often moving around the house checking on things and on alert for cats.
We are working on not snacking from the litter box, are down to an occasional small piddle on the floor and she is beginning to recognize and respond to her own name. She is crated when I leave the house and is quite vocal about it initially. She is in a vericrate due to her ability to escape from every other crate in the house, and I have just a sheet in with her as she shreds pillows in her stress.
She eats canned Science diet and zucchini slices in the morning with her Natural balance kibble at night. She is slowly gaining weight and filling out although she is still far lighter than one would anticipate. She has not shown much interest in toys to this point, but I feel her interest in the cats could translate to toys in the future.
We are waiting to see what happens as her coat continues to grow. She is quite fluffy with a pom pom tail and doesn't mind a gentle brushing although she has yet to matt. She is learning about leashes but still winds herself around everything at this point. She is doing well with walking around the yard as she likes to be where I am for the most part. She sleeps either with me or in the bed on the floor beside my bed as she wishes and tends to sleep through unless she hears the cats in the hallway. She does settle again after a quick drink and an investigation. In the morning she is first up and then we are out to the yard for our morning routine. She has her breakfast upon coming in and settles to watch the news or follow the cats around until she is in her crate for the work day. Upon returning from work I take everyone back out to the yard for a while and then a rotating walk for those interested. For the evening she roams and explores and naps with me and the other dogs on the couch. Dinner is served and then our evening trip to the yard before bed.
I think she would like to have a canine companion and must a fenced yard. She is an escape artist who spent her first moments on Canadian soil in a foot chase through the Toronto airport. She is a snuggly love, but not a purse puppy so needs someone who doesn't mind her bursts of energy. If her adoptive family did not have to crate her for long periods of time that would be wonderful, but would not recommend her for apartment or town house living do to the noise level when you must. People / teens need to respect her boundaries
Sweetie has arrived.
She is very much a very shy/ skittish dog in situations that she is not comfortable with. She had a brief 1/2 hr of freedom when she escaped his collar - but was contained safety back into care very fast.
She has no recall and will be learning.
She has no clue in what a collar/ leash is or crate- although is fine/ quiet when in one.
this poor gal has taken it hard for his trip into rescue... but we are hoping that once settled into her foster home that his true colours will come out so we can learn more about her needs.
Jessie and sweetie are fascinated by the cats from a distance so far
More to come as we learn / confirm this dogs needs as she settles in foster care..
We welcome your application for consideration .
