Personality: Sandy is a couch potato. Likes her couch or her corner and doesn’t move too much. she is extremely docile and therefore good with dogs and kids.grass trained. Likes short walks. understand “no” and “sit”. She likes food and her walks. Doesn’t like sudden actions or extremely high energy dogs. Doesn’t react to them but gets visibly uncomfortable. She walks extremely well on the leash. Will stick close to you and provides inputs on where she wants to go. She can sleep alone at night. Doesn’t bark/whine when left alone. She doesn’t chew on stuff but will raid the dustbin if she is hungry at night. low energy. She is extremely intelligent. For example, she will wait for you to get the leash even when she is out the door before she starts walking, remembers the way to and back to the house in one walk, can use her nose to open sliding doors. Very food motivated and hence, extremely trainable.
For the first month with us, Sandy hid in her corner, trying to be invisible whenever we came into her kennel. However, she would be completely co-operative whenever we took her to the vet, staying completely still regardless of what the vet was doing to her.
Come second month, Sandy started wagging her tail whenever we approached bearing food, and she would gobble down her medications without fuss. She slowly started to grow on us.
As we approach her 3rd month with us, Sandy made a breakthrough. With lots of coaxing, we managed to take her out on leash, despite the sweet girl being so terrified of the leash seemingly threatening to tighten around her neck, the strange sounds the vehicles made, people shuffling their feet as they walk past.
Today, Sandy is one of the favourites at the shelter, always diving down to kiss our feet whenever we come into her enclosure, and eagerly waiting to go out on her walks. She has come a long way, and now, it’s time to find her a home to call her own.
