She absolutely loves playtime and cuddles. But does have moments where she is good at self-regulating and goes to lay down on her own. She is a BIG chewer, so making sure she has options of toys to chew on and given to as options will help any teething being taken out on your kitchen chairs.
At the moment, she really does not like her crate. Maybe it's because she was stuck in a little cage where she grew up, but she is NOT a happy dog in there. We keep trying to make it her "safe space" but that is not the case. She would be best living with an active family that enjoys walks, hiking, playing in the snow and lots of attention in the house. Absolutely not an apartment dog and not a couch potato.
She did have worms, and it took a couple days for them to pass, but she is feeling much better now, and all bowel movements are healthy. When we first got her, she weighed 14.8lbs and is now up to 16.2lbs
Are they good with cats:
Has not been introduced to any cats but is such a sweetie I don't see it being an issue
Are they good with dogs:
Yes, she absolutely wants to be everyone's best friend. We have two dogs that she currently lives with, a male 135lbs mastiff who is her best buddy and a female 60lbs pit bull mix who tolerates her lol
Are they good with children:
Has not met any children yet
Do they bark:
If the other dogs are barking at something outside, she follows along. She also barks quite a bit if you put her in her crate, but eventually settles down.
Are they house-trained:
Work in progress as she is so young and had never been in a house before. But she is getting very good at letting us know when she needs to go outside.
Are they good in the car:
Yup, usually sleeps
Are they good on leash:
Surprisingly very good for her age on a leash
This young lady comes from a neglect situation in Smokey Lake. The Humane Society was involved and was forcing the removal of several dogs from the home. She was at risk of euthanasia, but we found a foster home for her.
