Foster Update: I am the sweetest most expressive pup - just look into my eyes, they will always be on you expressing how much I love you, trust you, and need you. I never stray but stay close to my human family. I am not a huge cuddler, but I want to be near and I do love belly rubs now and again. I am still learning not to jump for my food, but a slightly stern voice reminds me I should sit. I am quite smart and learn quickly even if my instincts take over now and again. I am a protector of my pack - human and doggie - and will bark if something comes near that I do not know. I stop immediately once I have an introduction though - as I said, I trust my human family. My foster would say I am very soulful!
All of the pups from this litter are extremely food motivated and train well with treats. They understand a stern voice and quickly stop doing what they are doing if used. They know “sit” and “gentle” in English and Spanish. Although they go to the bathroom frequently, they can hold it all night and try to go away from their living area when they do need to go. They always go to the bathroom off trail, in bushes, or away from human scent. For the time we had them they did not chew on things.
Nueces has been tested with cats. She seems distrustful of them but doesn’t attack them; more that she is unsure of them.
