|Any additional comments regarding temperament that haven’t been covered by the questions above?||She’s very timid and defensive at first, growling and snapping if you get to close. While fostering her we had a crate that she treated as a “safe space” and she also was content to sleep there overnight.
Needs some more training when it comes to barking in reaction to small noises around the house, and people she hasn’t warmed up to.
|Profile Information||At first pocket is a reserved and timid dog, but once you gain her trust through time (and some treats), she becomes a loving snuggle bug who loves to stick by your side. Once she
comes out of her shell, she’s a little firecracker who may surprise you with how much she loves a game of fetch, and a good belly rub.Pocket’s a quick learner as she has picked up how to sit, stay, dance, and how to indicate she needs to go out, in her time with us. She would thrive in a family without children, that can spend most of the day at home with her, whether thats by your side on the couch, on your lap as you work, or burrowed under some blankets waiting to surprise you.
