DanaWilson Posted March 28, 2015 Report Share Posted March 28, 2015 We live in a very rural area where it's not uncommon for dogs to free roam. We don't ever allow Ruckus to do it but plenty of people do. Anyway, a little girl has been skirting our property and finally worked up the courage to approach us. She looked pretty rough, no collar and no microchip and after posting her picture on the neighborhood watch app, no one has come forward to claim her. It's been 2 weeks and she seems to have decided she wants to be our dog. She looks like a border collie and she definitely had some nice genetics somewhere because once she was clean and brushed, she's silky soft. I'm just surprised by her personality. She's quiet and calm almost to the point of being timid and she's probably only 25-30 lbs compared to Ruckus's almost 50 lbs. We aren't leaving her alone with Ruckus unsupervised because we're pretty sure she's intact/possibly in heat (we have a vet visit scheduled to look her over) I was just curious how to go about building her confidence and getting some basic training in place. Ruckus is so outgoing and boisterous, he picks up commands in a matter of days and loves everyone and everything. She's sweet and gentle and just acts like she wants to be held all the time. How do I bring out her inner border collie (if that's indeed what she is)? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
