Sugarbaby

I posted before that I thought she was from a puppy mill. However I found out from the shelter she was at befor she went to the foster ppl that she was with a homeless person. I think she was kept in a shopping cart. That would explain some things about her behaviour. She dosent behave as if she was abused, but hadnt got enough food, her pads were bright pink and tender. Not house trained( but starting to get it), very shy of strangers. She is 11months and still clumsy. Is that typical for a havenese of her age.

Carma, can you define her clumsiness a bit better? At 11mos Simcoe had just finished another growth spurt and didn't yet realise that she didn't fit some places she used to and also did not realise it took less steps from one end of the room to the other due to longer stride which resulted in a few banged heads and nearly running in to walls but she understood within a few weeks. Your dog's lack of spatial awareness might be from that, too.

Yes. I notice it the most when she is running up stairs and stumbles. Also when she tries to jump on the furniture, she will slam into the side.

Hmm. Keep monitoring - if it keeps up I'd say it wouldn't hurt to go in for a vet visit just to rule things out, but I don't think it's unusual for her to be doing that unless it's excessive.
