Summer Adventure #1 Part III

I was contacted by one rescue group, who is willing to list her with their site, if I foster her. Which I can for a couple of weeks at least. So we'll see what happens!

I've also decided that she has never been taught to potty on leash. She pottied once this morning and only because she couldn't hold it anymore. It could be easily labeled as stubborness, but that won't deal with the real issuse, which is a lack of knowledge. Guess who gets to deal with it!? If I do nothing else with this dog, but teach her to potty on leash, I will doing a great thing. I never realized that it was something that had to be taught. Shows what a sheltered life I lived only working with puppies/service dogs with a ton of rules.

She's calmed a lot since last night, still very hyper but she just hopped on the desk and laid down in my lap. Yikes...is that a piece of my heart melting?!? NO! NO! NO! I REFUSE!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOo.

BTW- I'm changing my breed diagnosis to Chihuahua mix or something

Oh my dogness! What a beautiful pup!

What's one more in the grand scheme of things? :)

She looks Chihuahua, Jack Russell something. Jack Russell would certainly explain the hyper.

She sure is cute! She looks part Jack Russell Terrier to me. I hope she picks things up quickly!

Read all your posts....wow!! interesting story and dilemna you have. Sure hope she can find a new home and I understand what you mean with dogs not knowing rules. What we think is common knowledge with dogs, is a "trick" with some other dogs.
Good luck!! Long road, but you can do it! Afterall, you have three excellent helpers :)
