This is Momma. She is appx. 1-year-old Fox Terrier. She weighs 16 pounds and is 20 inches long and 10 inches tall.
Since the birth of her 5 babies, her true character has come forth. She is a clown. She’ll Dig to China at breakneck speed then roll over on her back like she is exhausted, all the while checking to see if you’re watching. She loves Choir Practice and has developed a beautiful howl along with the barking. When she joins the others doing Zoomies, she leads the pack hands down. Another thing she loves to do is lay on her belly and drag herself, looking at you with this silly look on her face, like, Hey, I need help over here !!!
She loves Chewies of all kinds. Stuffed toys don’t have a long life with her. She hoards socks, we found a pile of missing ones at the end of our couch. Of course, she looked so innocent when she was asked, “Did you do this?” Oh yes, she loves to kidnap your shoes, she’ll show you, then take off running with you in full chase!!!
Her diet is Nutro Adult Small Bites Chicken, Whole Brown Rice and Oatmeal. She takes a Chewable Vitamin every morning. Once a day she gets 1/4th of a Lean Pepperoni treat. Since she had the babies her coat has developed the most beautiful sheen. She has no food aggression and shares wonderfully.
She is trained to Wee Pads 100%. A lot of times she will come tell us when she did her numbers so we can go pick up and lay down a clean Wee Pad. Due to having babies we have kept her No Paws on the Ground (outside).
She loves all dogs, big to tiny. No cats or children have been around her since arriving here. With adults, she is so sweet. So far not a lap dog but does prefer to lay either next to you or behind you in back of the couch. Just looking at a Fly Swatter or belt, sends her cowering. We have kept those out of her sight. Sudden loud noises send her into a barking fit, we have been working to get this under control.
She is leash trained, does pull sometimes but generally she does fine. A harness works best for her. She does “stay”, “leave it” and we are working on “sit”. She prefers to sleep in her own bed or on the back of a couch.
