Isn't this a beautiful face?!!!! This is Bunny. She is about 18 months old and has had a litter and they are already weaned. Bunny was brought in last Friday with porcupine quills in her muzzle and right eye. She had been in a dog fight and had puncture wounds in her shoulder as well as under and over her right eye.
Bunny is the happiest foster we've had. She is very social and, this is so unusual, she is very LOW energy! My daughter took her out for a walk the other day and Bunny got 1/2 a block from our house and Bunny decided to simply sit in the middle of the sidewalk. She finally got up and a block later sat again. She doesn't really run. She is a big girl and really knows how to enjoy life!
Bunny isn't big on barking (YAY!). When she goes for a nap, one of many on any given day, she goes to a quiet place and will sleep for hours. Bunny is a very happy, mild mannered, seriously low energy dog. She is very loving and is showing to have very nice house manners, unless something yummy smelling is in the garbage. She just needs gentle reminders that she doesn't need to rely on garbage to survive anymore because food is always available. She is fully house trained and behaves really well on leash.
Bunny has a very gentle mouth, taking treats without snapping or hurting. She is terrific around kids since she isn't easily startled or excited. She has wonderful dog manners and has done very well around my whacked out, high strung shelties.
