Clara (formerly Keagan) is a sweet year and a half year old. In just a few short days she has settled in to her new environment. Her temperament is very easy-going. She loves to play with her new toys, and to chase tennis balls around the yard. However, she still has a lot of puppy in her, and occasionally finds my shoes and socks more interesting than her toys. She's made good friends with my Miniature Dachshund and often follows him around the yard. She walks well on a leash and harness, is not aggressive toward passing dogs, and behaves well when passing or stopping to chat with other people. She has not had a lot of experience in the outside world, so many things are new to her. Consequently, she is a bit on the timid side, and responds best to a lot of love and patience. She loves to be petted and cuddled, and can frequently be found curled up with me on my oversized recliner or on the floor with me, drifting off to sleep while I brush her. She has a few lessons to learn. Getting in and out of the car is still a challenge for her, and she is just being introduced to a crate. I have no doubt that she will quickly overcome all these challenges, and make a perfect companion.
