Meet The New Kid

Please meet, The New Kid. What her foster family calls her. She's between 2 and 3yrs old. We don't have kids, so we can't vouch for how she is with kids. But as far as being around my husband and I, she's shown no aggression at all. And at the vet's office she was very friendly towards ppl. Any dogs that was in the lobby while waiting, she seemed to have curiosity to want to meet other dogs. Wasn't able to have any interactions at the vets office with other dogs. Naturally ppl kept their dogs at bay in those situations. So, the only dogs we've seen her with is our 3 furkids. Since she's been here, I'd say her temperament is friendly with ppl, loves to be wherever you are. Some separation anxiety, but I wouldn't say terrible and with consistent reassurance, she'd wait forever till you came back. She escaped our 6ft chain link by going under it only once thus far. I was only a mere 80ft roughly from the fence checking on our chickens in the chicken lot. I didn't see her get out, but one second she was watching me from inside the fence, i turn around and she's right outside the chicken lot and her only concern was how to get to me. She will 100% take off after deer, so untrustworthy off leash. So i introduced her to our furkids. Wasn't too bad. She flopped on her back and showed her belly. We have 2 males 1 female. Our female Siberian husky wasn't crazy about her but gave her stink eyes and would do sneak ups and nip the new kid. Which she never went after McKenna for it, but she got distrustful of McKenna. The new kid as we've been calling her, has no issues with accidents in the house. She's young with a lot of energy but has zero problems settling in on a comfy bed and staying put. At bedtime she never leaves her bed. Same for just watching tv etc at night. Have seen no food aggression with us. She can sit and wait for food pretty darn good. Needs to learn boundaries as far as if you have other dogs and everyone gets a treat in order. She just comes right on in. And same with giving affection. She will kinda barge in, our furkids are not fond of. She's actually pretty good in a crate as well. If she’s left alone is when she'll start whining. But it's not a panicked state. She'll cry for a bit, then settle, then cry then settle down. She loves to what I call them get running spells in the backyard. Some ppl call it the zoomies? She's super sweet and very alert. So would definitely let you know of strange noises or ppl coming around. Bathing, toenails clipped and ear cleaning she had zero problems with. Didn't get upset at all. Getting brushed or ear cleaning she just laid there and relaxed. Currently she's a little underweight at 46lbs. Another 5 lbs or so would be ideal for her.
