Exuberant Cher is full of affection. She loves attention and being near her humans, and she'll follow right with you as you go about the house. Cher weighs 15 lbs. and is probably 3 or 4 years old (no more than 5, says her vet). In her foster home, she loves to play with her foster brothers, chasing and wrestling with them or just hanging out together. She did not do so well with the canine residents in a former home, however, for unknown reasons. So new doggy introductions need to be slow and deliberate to give her time to feel comfortable and ensure that all will be congenial. Based on how she will tear across the yard to chase squirrels, it is doubtful that she would do well with cats. Cher doesn’t seem to have learned much in her former life before coming to rescue, so she is now being introduced to all kinds of new things like walking on leash, staying calm when her people leave the home, sleeping quietly in a crate at night, coming when called, and responding to other verbal cues. Since she is one of those dogs who makes good eye contact and can really focus her attention on you, she is making good progress quickly. She has already mastered the dog door and uses it to take herself inside and out when she needs. With the dog door and a set potty schedule, her house training has been good. Her best claim to fame, though, is the warm greeting she gives you when she is happy to see you, wriggling most adorably, with her whole body quivering in excitement and happiness and her little tail wagging so quickly that it is just a flickering blur.
