Sammy is approximately 1.5 years old. When she was rescued she had had a minor spat with her brother. They both only received some minor scratches. The owners were very upset and wanted her gone immediately. She was spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm tested (negative) on February 24. She had never been around cats but lived with 3 very small children. She now stays in a home with 5 dogs of various sizes and 6 cats. She has started playing with one of the cats and for the most part ignores the other cats. She plays with the bigger dogs and ignores the little ones. She is a bit possessive. She was kept in a kennel most of the time so she hated the kennel. She is going through training to help her accept her kennel. She is doing great with the training. She loves her kennel and is possessive of it. She growls at the other dogs if they get too close to her kennel. She is a little possessive of her foster mom so will growl a little if the other dogs come close to the foster mom when she is by foster mom. Foster mom is doing positive training to correct this issue and is helping her to learn to find her place in the pack. She is a loving sweet baby and loves positive attention. She is very eager to please.
