From the Foster:
This beautiful lady knows how to chill on the couch. She loves to snuggle but she is also a handful when she doesn’t. She loves being outside and go for walks but she is scared of almost everything. The only place where she feels safe is in the couch (with you) or in your bed, day or night.
She is crate trained but doesn’t like it very much so we let her roam the house when we are gone. She used to spend her nights in the crate but she needed to pee a couple of times during the night, so we gave up on that and she now sleeps in our bed and she sleeps through the night. It was just like having a toddler again. She is house broken, on a schedule, but she also occasionally anxiety pees, so if she is worried or anxious, she might have an accident, even if she was outside 5 min ago. It has not happened in a while but might happen again when she moves to a new family.
She is great with other dogs (we have not met a dog she doesn’t like) but do not like cats, and its
mutual. We just adopted her former foster sister and having another dog in the house has really help her with her anxiety, but she still has a long way to go.
This lady is all legs and such a puppy. She has no clue how big she is and she doesn’t know what personal space is. She just wants to be loved. She digs and she counter surfs, but we love her goofiness.
Bailey does not like when we are not all together as a family so she will voice her opinion, the same goes for when you should go to bed. She barks very little but she talks.
We lovingly call her Sheldon due to that if someone has taken her spot on the couch, she doesn’t know what to do. Same goes if someone has moved something or put a bag where it wasn’t one before.
We would not recommend her to a family with smaller children due to her playstyle, no clue about personal space, sudden noises (any noises) is scary and her non-awareness of her body.
When she gets older and stop being so scared, we think she will be a very fun, loving and outstanding
If you are willing to spend a lot of time on her for training, have a lot of patience and as a reward have a super snuggler, this dog is for you. She has taken a few classes and we do see improvements.
