I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.
Hello....my name is Mali. I am a sweet, albeit shy, petite 3 yr old silver female. I am on the smaller side as weims go and weigh about 60 lbs. or so. I am a very pretty girl with big amber eyes, lovely flat well set ears and a very beautiful and expressive face. I came to GLWR as my owners family and home situation changed and I could not stay with him any longer. The nice folks here at GWLR said they could help find me a new home....so here I am.
It is nice here. I get to free roam the house and I am a very good girl when in the home with the other dogs. We also get to go in and out as we please when everyone is home and so I learned how to use a doggie door very quickly but it was kind of scary at first. I am a bit on the shy side and do not like loud noises so having the other dogs around is comforting for me. I like having them here to play with as well...have you ever hear of the "bow, pounce, and jump" maneuver...ha ha it gets those boys every time! I like to play a lot and it is one of my favorite past times along with lying in the yard and either catching some rays or lying in the grass and cooling off in the shade. I used to live in the city so I am really liking living in the country with all the smells and scents in the air. I often get to see the deer and the turkeys go by, but sadly they always seem to be on the other side of the fence and my weim buddies and I can never get very close to them!
A little more about me....I am a bit on the shy and skittish side, especially if things move fast or are loud. Once I settle in though I love to cuddle with you on the couch and take a nap or just snuggle with you.Your lap is a great place for me to rest my chin and is even better if you scratch my ears at the same time! I get to free roam the house and have always been a very good girl I like to hang out and lay around with my weim friends too. We often can be found sleeping on top of each other. I like using one of my buddies as a pillow...it is so comfortable. On that note, although I was an only dog and raised initially with a small child, GLWR thinks it best if I find a new home that will be a little quieter and have another dog there. I really like having a buddy to hang out and play with and it helps to build my confidence up a bit. Like now, for example, I am learning how to do the "weimie zoom" in the yard as we play. It is really fun to run that fast! I like to do other things to like, ride in the car, chew on bully sticks or kongs, dinner bowl time and snuggle and cuddle time. I like to play with toys and like to show off my new "zooming" powers!
I am very gentle and take treats nicely. Once comfortable, I love getting pats and attention from my family members. I have not lived with cats so I do not know how I would respond if I had to live with them. I think I could be taught to leave them be, but I would have to have someone who is patient to teach me (umm...I probably will be more frightened of the cat than the cat of me...don't tell any of my weim buddies I said that though). I also have not really been on a leash much but the folks at GWLR are trying to get me used to walking in a Sporn harness when I go out. It would be important for me to have a securely fenced in yard to wander around in when we are outside together so we can play and I can develop some time to trust you and know that all is well when you are around. Being off leash when away from my home, at least for a while, is not something I am comfortable with. The big world out there can be so very scary! Oh and also, a spot or two in the yard where I can dig a little now and then would be a nice little extra if that can be managed! I think too that I would really like to take a training class with you too so we can both learn together. I like to learn new things!
All that said, what do you think? Are you and I maybe a match? I sure hope so...zooms and kisses....Mali.
