Update on 2/20/2011: Lovely (now Josey) and Sparky are really enjoying playing together and Josey seems like such a happy girl. She really learns fast, already housetrained, comes to her name, sits, lays down and shakes on command. Working on "roll over" and she’s almost got it every time.
I just wanted to send you a quick update on Lovely. Her trip back went very well and she was very calm throughout and very easy to travel with (other than carrying her in the travel crate, at 24 pounds).
She has adapted much quicker to all of the changes than we would have expected and really seems very happy in her new home. Other than one or two early nips while playing with Sparky (our whippet mix), with just a little correction, she really has behaved well and plays very nice with him. We just started an advanced (older puppy) obedience class at PetSmart and I think she’s going to do great. We’re making sure she’s getting good exercise and lots of play time as she continues to get used to her new environment and routine.
I really don’t think we could have ended up with a better dog. She is very sweet, with a touch of sassiness, and seems to be quite smart. I can’t really understand why she hadn’t been adopted earlier, but glad she wasn’t.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance and the good care you obviously provided to her over the last several months at the shelter. I’m sure not all dogs come out of other shelters in such good shape and I feel very fortunate that we were able to adopt her and have her in our lives.
We will follow up with you again soon and let you know more about her progression.
Thanks again for everything.
