A second hav- what to look for?
I have a question to ask everyone- I am having MHS, and am in the process of looking for a puppy. But my question is how do I determine what type of personality is a best match for my hav Parker? Parker is loving and sweet with the family, but is extremely shy with anyone and everyone else- it takes him forever to warm up to anyone who comes into the house- if he does at all. We have a caretaker 24/7 in our house for my mom, and after 1 month, he stil won't go up to her- he has gotten closer, but won't let her get too close. When he is near other dogs, he will at first bark and pull on the leash to get closer- but is definitly shy when he gets near to them.
Parker loves to cuddle, but usually when it is his idea. He is both a velcro dog, and independent. I sometimes have to remind him that he was supposed to be my lap dog and to just sit with me while I scratch him. Then, he will get comfortable and enjoy the attention.
So, what personality would I look for in the next hav?
