Pet Friendly Millie

Postby Amy Hendrickson » Fri May 22, 2009 7:55 pm

Millie is a super sweet gal. She's as american as apple pie and just as sweet and absolutely starved for affection. She's another shelter transfer that was a neglected chain dog. She was a little skinny but picked up weight in the shelter and is doing much better in foster care. She is crate trained and very good in the crate. She doesn't like to go in but once she's in she will stretch out and chew a bone or just sleep. She's just happy to be clean and on something soft. She's a flashy piebald girl that may have originally been obtained for breeding but she's now spayed so she can be a pet.

She doesn't like to get a bath and you will end up just as wet as she will, hopefully she will learn to like them. She doesn't mind getting her nails trimmed or her ears cleaned. She accepts all handling with ease, including bear hugs and pinched skin. She is extremely submissive to everything - cats included. At the slightest hint of aggression from another animal she goes belly up or hits the floor. She will need a home with a mild neutered male dog and someone who won't let her get picked on by other animals.

As to be expected with a neglected chain dog....she knows NOTHING, not even how to walk on a leash so we are starting with square one to teach the basics and housebreaking. She seems very responsive to training, food motivated and eager to connect. She hasn't quite gotten the hang of the gentle leader harness yet. Doesnt' seem the sharpest tool in the shed but she's mighty sweet. She is a lap dog, loves the opportunity to sleep in the bed. Her personality seems to be the goofy, silly, lightly dense, and super sweet. She's our goofy little fruitcake.

She has an old broken leg that healed on it's own and while it doesn't slow her down - nothing slows her down right now, it may later in life. You hardly notice it except that her foot turns out sometimes when she's standing still and you can see the awkward bend go the leg. She may be more prone to arthritis in that leg when she reaches old age.

Spayed, fully vetted, microchipped and HW negative. on glucosamine for her knee

She's one of the most "user friendly" dogs we've had in a long time. She could probably easily go to a first timer or someone who is just learning about the breed
