From the Foster:
Amelia LOVES her people. Looking for melt in your lap cuddles? Check. Morning kisses? Check check. Cutest, most expressive ears ever? You got it.
When first meeting new people, Amelia is cautious, but has warmed up quickly to everyone. She might give a few barks and often pees a bit but will be offering her belly before you know it. She does do best with 1:1 greetings vs. a crowd of people (so, walking in a crowded area would be a bit much for this nugget). She is pretty fearful in grooming scenarios (i.e. a new person putting something over her head and touching her paws), so finding a groomer who can work with this would be good. Or perhaps nail trims and baths will be best done at home, she seems fine with it there!
She is doing super well with house training, but does best going in a yard. We’re working on going while on walks, but it’s definitely a work in progress. She can get spooked occasionally and will try to back out of her harness. A slip lead is imperative when venturing outside in a non-fenced area, at least while she gets used to her new home.
Amelia doesn’t yet go in her crate freely, but doesn’t protest if you place her in there. She sleeps in her crate very well at night, though she is an A+ cuddled and will lay as close as possible to you if you let her.
Amelia is VERY curious about cats, but not aggressive. She’d do best with a cat that is very dog-friendly, one that would maybe play back. She has done well with all the dogs she’s met and seems to adapt to different playing styles pretty well.
Overall, Amelia would do best in a confident home. Probably one where new people aren’t frequently visiting. She needs someone who can help her feel safe, comfortable, and confident. Someone that won’t push her limits. But, oh, the reward for this work will be high!
