Of course when you rescue a pup, it makes absolutely no difference what the breed(s) are... it's just important that you and the pup "click"... and it certainly sounds like the two of you have. She's cute as a button!

Indeed. And we definitely clicked. ;-)

I think the reason the place was so sure of her breed (and projected height and weight) is that she may have been a mill or BYB dog originally (or a 'surprise litter' between two known breed parents). She took right to her crate the first night and used piddle pads right away with no problem. Which from what I read isn't typical for mill dogs. We wonder if she was given up because of her health issues. We literally had to put food in her mouth because she wouldn't eat. She was 1.8 pounds and a week after we had her she still was 1.8. Or that maybe she had been rescued from a mill that got shut down.

Whatever her past, she is 5.2 now. We used to could eat pizza right next to her and she wouldn't be interested, but now we have to put her up so we can eat in peace. And no, we don't give her people food.

Btw does anyone here post pictures from an iPad or iPhone? Is there a secret to get it to work? Or do I just need to do it from my computer?

The same here with Nina. I can't even cook now without her barking up a storm. We just ignore her barking but it might be really anoying when people come over. I hope over time she will calm down.

What I learned from my trainer is to ignore the bad behaviour and reward the good. When she is quiet, tell her what a good girl she is and give her a treat. When she barks ignore. She's smart, she will figure it out.

Ha! I sounds like she definitely knows she landed in the right place! I'm glad you found each other!

I haven't figured out a way to do it... which is a pain, since I like to check the forum in the evening, when I'm in bed. I have to remember, and post photos the next day from the computer!
