So, the gorgeous Cindy is continuing to grow in confidence and proving to be a wonderful little "big" personality. She has really settled into "home life" with gusto and is enjoying all that brings. What a wonderful addition to any family she will be
She has now discovered toys which she is beginning to understand the purpose of...if soft and furry pulling apart mainly (got to love a terrier
), gravy bones, which she was burying in her basket but has now worked out can be eaten...yum, yum..and cuddles which she loves in abundance and she is particularly engaged with my daughter who she gets so excited to see...wagging, play bowing and just joyful - truly wonderful to see this little girl beginning to love and engage in life..!
With regard to getting the best from this lovely bundle if cuteness..she would benefit from some basic training and socialisation (especially good for terriers I think given they can be somewhat headstrong regardless of size). These classes / training can also be a lot of fun to do and builds a great bond between everyone. Also, building Cindy's confidence around traffic and cars would help her to relax more on her walks. Any loud noises such as garage doors closing, car doors slamming etc. at the moment make her jump, though she does calm down once confidently managed on the lead. So I think with a confident owner and maybe another dog who behaves well near roads on the lead, this would help enormously to help her she would overcome this nervousness very easily.
In the house she is very affectionate and wants to play and roll on her back for tummy rubs...she is very much still a puppy in her manner and has that endearing sense of fun and discovery for life. She has met and been okay with our Staffie Nelly (though perhaps a little jumpy and puppy for our 14 year old lady) and she is aware of my other two and has walked with them on lead which we will continue to do whilst she stays to encourage her to get used to other dogs.
Little Cindy really has it all - looks, personality, fun, love and is very biddable to training...and soooo much more beside to give!!!
Fingers crossed she finds her home soon
