This is what Darla's foster home has to say about Darla:
Darla is such a joy to have around...she loves to be rubbed on the tummy and lots of cuddles...and kisses. Wants to be close, especially when sleeping. Snores up a storm too!
Does fine with other dogs..I have 8 others that she navigates around....just not good at sharing toys...or at feeding time...
Would suggest no children under the age of 15 though...scares easy and will snap if startled...she is getting a? ?
lot better with this though.
When she first came to us she would spin in circles constantly...but now she only does it if there is a commotion going on...sort of a nervous reaction. Maybe once or twice a week this might occur. When you would reach down and pet her sometimes she would snap at your touch...that has become a lot less frequent now...because I am constantly reaching down and petting her trying to catch her off guard to get a reaction...guess she has gotten used to my touch because she hasn't snapped in a couple of weeks. She does however growl at times...no one is around her, it's like she hears something and wants to let everyone know she isn't a push over...I usually just talk to her and then pet her and she is over it.
Very easy to bathe, but hates her legs and feet to be touched...will actually bite you...so we are cautious of those areas...I feel in time ... with more trust this won't be an issue. Will not let you brush her...but doesn't mind the hair dryer...lololol weird I know!
She has buffed up since coming to live with us...and is actually starting to run around a little bit...we try to get her to chase us in the yard..kind of funny to watch...like a baby learning to walk...navigates stairs with ease...actually seems to like going up and down...
As for being house trained...well if you regularly take her out...usually no accidents...but she doesn't actually let you know...she will start walking around with a purpose and then I ask her if she wants to go potty outside and she will head for the stairs. So progress is baby steps.
She loves to eat! We feed her 2x a day and she will down it all and keep looking for more..
The only commands she knows it come and no...doesn't want to cooperate with sit and stay is laughable...but she moves slowly, so controlling isn't an issue.
In the short time we have had her ... she has become one of the crew and is very comfortable wandering around with everyone....
We love her to bits....and anyone who chooses to adopt her will have a wonderful loving friend for a long long time!...
