FOOD! Walks, guarding, barking, nosing out of the window, chewing on chews and bones, playing with Millie Mocha, sleeping on the couch, her 'den' (crate)

Woods and countryside... off lead of course

Arrival Story:
We were visiting our vets to give our cat his annual booster injections. We had lost our previous rescue dog about 6 months prior to this and had not thought about having a new dog so quickly. Our cat does not like other cats and prefers dog company so was pining for his lost mate. Anyway, the vet's nurses knew this and told us they had a puppy with a broken leg staying there that had been removed from its home by the RSPCA. We went to have a look and fell in love with her. It was a labour of love at the beginning because she had a cast on her leg for a few months and we could not get her injections done so were unable to socialise her until she was about 8 months old... this has meant we have had to do a lot of catch up work.

Bio:
She is very wilful and highly strung. She loves working for you... really she needs to be working all the time. She loves to spend time guarding my dad and his plot of land where he grows vegetables and fruits. She is an excellent watch/guard-dog. She is also great with all animals... we have gerbils, guinea pig, cat... and she is very gentle with them. She made an excellent 'mother' to my dog Millie Mocha and she tolerates her even when she is hanging off her neck and irritating her. I wanted to do PAT work with her, but until she will walk on the lead without pulling, that is out of the question... maybe someday! She sheds hair like there's no tomorrow and can fill a Dyson vacuum with hair EVERY day... but we love her all the same!
