What a sweet little baby! Agnes is still very much a puppy, maybe 10 months to a year or so. She still has puppy smell and puppy breath, and she's very wiggly and clumsy with her feet!
She is very outgoing and super excited to meet new people, and she is friendly with both men and women! She gives lots of kisses and just wants to be close to whomever she can get to! She does very well with kids, and she is playful and friendly with other dogs she passes. People commands are very new for her, but we're working on sit!
She loves chewing on her nylabone, and loves squeaky toys even more. We're working on fetch! Agnes and her foster brother play nicely together; she's got a lot of puppy energy. She shares food, water, and toys nicely, and she takes treats gently, as well. She has not been destructive at all in our apartment. She grabbed a sock in her mouth, and brought it to me, but dropped it when I said No. She has been gentle to our pillows and furniture and rugs. Agnes was emaciated when we got her. She had a hard time keeping food down the first few days, but she's now up to eating full portions! She's putting some meat on her bones already.
Agnes is an absolute saint in her crate! What a great little girl. She goes in with very little fuss, and sleeps quietly through the night. We are keeping her in her own room, with doors shut, and that seems to help her stay calm. When she can see us, or see her foster brother out walking, she will get excited in her crate and whine to come play with us. She has never had an accident in her crate, and she has peed outside 100% of the time! She is starting to get the hang of pooping quickly on our walks, and this means that she's been totally accident free since her first couple of days! She's well on her way to being fully housebroken!
When she has gotten her playfulness out of her system, Agnes is just sweet as can be. She'll lay down next to you, or drape herself across your lap, or curl up in the crook of your leg and sleep. She loves to lay on you and give kisses. Agnes is a sweet bundle of energy and love. She's so excited to have a furever home and a family to call her own!
