Day 4 of Dolly being part of the family and so far she seems to be settling in well. She is the sweetest, most loving darling we've ever met. love4.gif

Before we met, we were told Dolly had a few issues with being walked since her operation but she seems to have recovered from that quite well, we've had no issues taking her out 3 times a day. We've noticed she particularly loves a 100 meter sprint here and there!

On our way home from her foster home, Dolly was well behaved and cuddled into Rich all the way on the 90 minute journey. When we got home I could tell she was quite anxious, her breathing was heavy and erratic and a brief introduction to the cats exacerbated that. After a couple of erratic sleeps and a few toilet accidents, we're finally getting into some sort of routine and understanding of Dolly's behaviour. She's such a gentle soul and her cues for the toilet are subtle and hard to read but I think we're getting there at last.

After 4 days, Dolly is a lot calmer now, she's loving her walks and lots of cuddles. She met my boyfriend's 8 year old daughter yesterday and they adored each other on sight, it was lovely to watch. And my goodness does that girl love to sleep in the day!
I'm surprised at how well trained Dolly is, she knows and obeys so many of the obvious commands, she's very easy to be around. This is helping with the cat introductions, we've gone from Dolly wanting to chase on sight, to her being alert when they around and only chasing half the time! On Monday we nipped out and returned to find Dolly sat on the stairs with the remainder of the cat flap around her neck looking very sheepish! lol.gif

I wish the cats were doing so well - unfortunately 2 of them are constantly hiding away and scared and the third has left home, not seen for 3 days now. We know cat/dog introduction can take time so I think we're moving in the right direction now at least.

Thanks Dianna for all your advice, we'll keep you updated on Dolly's progress!

What a wonderful write and photos I do hope the cats becomes brave and Dolly chills further. If you have a few soft toy cats to place around so she at least gets used to the idea cats live here. She must respect them. I would have her on a short lead so you can support any entrance from feline friends so they feel safe.




Dolly was returned that week as she chase d a running cat , didnt do harm as didnt actually catch him but the family were unnerved by it

How is Dolly with other dogs now, do you think that she could live with another male?
