However today was a totally different experience! They took to each other immediately and played chase, dove through tunnels, dug together under the playhouse and just had the very best time! Golly, was I a happy camper to see this!
Gunny missed her social interaction time as a youngster due to her breeder's illness. I knew this ahead of time but felt with lots of exposure and slow interactions, Gunny would learn to accept strange dogs and people. We have made great strides and today was the frosting on the cake! :+)
Hannah, the black and white parti is a social butterfly - nothing makes her happier than to engage with new dogs or people. She is the girl I kept back from the Charlotte x Rocky mating. Having a girl that is so confident and friendly like Hannah, provides Gunny, who is learning to embrace a more confident persona, a furry friend to lean on and learn from.
They had a ball and I know Gunny came in after all that playing and headed for a soft bed to take a nap. :+)
|They are very close in age and size.|
|Hannah typically comes through the tunnel like a bullet, but Gunny was waiting for her this time!|
|Wrestling like they were littermates. They are not.|
|Whose turn to run??|
|Looks like it is Gunny's turn.|
|Chase, chase and more chasing.|
|A friendly duo takes a break.|
This outing is huge for Gunny and has proven to me that she can and will adapt well. I will continue to expose and train her until the right guardian family comes along.
