I will update on her condition as I learn more…
Foster mom Alyssa has written a bio about Florence…
And yes, she’s got legs for days!!!
Florence is young, she is big, some kind of Wolfhound or Wolfhound mix. She is full of energy. She loves running and playing. All of those things are what we look at for a good match. Good with kids? We don’t know, but we know she’s got enough energy to be knocking kids down so that has to be taken into consideration.
Florence is on about a year to a year and half old.
Florence looks to me for cues inside, but walks have just been really difficult bc there are too many distractions. She can get over-excited and we happen to live in a neighborhood with lots of rabbits, squirrels and other people walking dogs. Florence needs the exercise of a walk but I was coming home frustrated a lot. I tried the slip lead and I tried the harness and I just thought I had more control with the harness. So I *finally* get the chance to listen to the podcast yesterday morning and realize the issue with the slip lead is user-error. In addition to the podcast, I watch a bunch of YouTube videos and we practice around the house and in the backyard. We went on our first official walk with the slip lead where I actually know what I’m doing this morning …. and it was fantastic! We both still have some learning to do but I believe things will be night and day moving forward! Thank you!! (and Ken is currently shopping for a slip lead for our dog)”
She barked at the donkeys a few times but has decided they’re ok and will just watch them when we go out. I’m feeding her 3x’s a day in hopes of putting a little weight on. She’s taking her medicine without any problems and will sit and wait for me to put her food down. Such a good girl. She now has an open crate during the day but I do keep an eye on her though the camera. She’ll look around, pick up a toy and play or chew her Nyla bone. Next thing I know she’s back sleeping in the open crate or in the middle of the room. Florence is tall and very beautiful. Her coat is coarse and wiry except for the ears which are super smooth and silky. What a gorgeous dog!
Let’s all hope and pray that is not the case.
