Sunny has been with us since Saturday morning. She is a very sweet girl and we are learning more about her.
She is very much a people person. She loves to be around us and has bonded quite a bit with me. The first night she slept in her kennel on the main floor and she wimpered and whined for about 20 minutes. The second night we let her sleep in our room and she laid by me on the floor all night. She's stayed there each night since...
We've learned that she is very interested in our cat. I'm not sure if it's an aggressive nature, but we feel she'd be best in a home without cats and perhaps small dogs.
She has no anxieties or guarding issues and has been great with our toddler son. When we leave the house for errands or work, she goes in her kennel. She will wimper as we leave, but I'm sure it is for a few minutes and then she settles in for a nap. Soon we will let her have free roam when we go. She is completely house trained. However, I do come home from work at lunch to let her and Lucy out for a break. This would be nice to see in her forever home.
She and our Lucy are a bit stand offish with each other, but each day it gets much better. I think it is mostly due to Sunny being in an unfamiliar environment and being a bit nervous in her new surroundings. She has settled down quite and bit and is able to relax when we sit down for some TV.
She very much wants to be petted and in the same room as you. She is very loving and very loyal. Her recall seems to be pretty good.
Sometimes when you go to pet her, she will squint her eyes and cower a bit. I'm not sure if it's a trust issue at this point or something from her past. Regardless, she warms up immediately when you first start to pet her.
Sunny is a total doll. She gets so excited to see us get home or wake up in the morning.
Now the really good news.... She has a family coming to meet her on Friday night. Hopefully it will be a good match. Wish her the best. She deserves it.
Thank you for reading up on her.
Sunny, Lucy and I pray every night for Mozart's safe return. We love you Mozart....!!
