Ms. Lady arrived from Kentucky on Saturday and she is a beautiful little girl. She was diagnosed with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever prior to her arrival, so when she got here she was exhausted and not feeling 100%. She is on medication and we expect her to be fine in a couple weeks. Even though she is tired and not feeling 100%, Lady gives kisses to anyone that will let her. She is just full of love and loves her people.
Lady has been a quiet little house guest. She sleeps a lot but she also plays hard with the other dogs and her foster daddy when we take her outside. So far she is getting along with the 3 resident dogs (1 female Rottie, and 2 Boxer boys). We have had no potty accidents in the house.
She has been sleeping next to me at nighttime on her own dog bed next to our bed. So far I have not heard any snoring and she sleeps through the night. She has been an absolute dream.
Lady has been eating twice a day and we have seen no food aggression from her. She eats just as her name says…like a “Lady”….she does not inhale her food, she eats slowly and small bites at a time. She is the first one to eat and is always the last one to finish.
One thing we are noticing with Lady is that she does not have obedience training. She is a very calm girl so far, but if she was a real spit-fire we would have our hands full. We are starting to work on “sit”. I think she will have this mastered in no time. She is not motivated with milk bones, but we have found that she loves cheese. Cheese will be my treat of choice while working with this sweet-pea.
Lady is only about 40 pounds right now and is skinny. I would guess that once we put 5-10 pounds on her she will be one great looking little girl. As you can see in the pictures, she has a petite head and is just so adorable.
I would suggest you get your applications in if this girl looks like she would fit into your home, she will be finding a home quickly!!!
