Updates from Owners:
Pupdate 1: Karma is 4 years old and I adopted her when she was a rescue at 4/5 months old. She was deaf when I brought her home and responds great to hand signals. If I shake my head no, she knows it means no. I don't recommend small kids as she startles easy and kids may not understand her signs when she doesn't want to be bothered. She has nipped at 1 child but didn't bite. She showed her teeth several times to be left alone and the child walked up and grabbed her around her nose and mouth. It was the only time she came close. It's for the best to not put Karma is a situation where she feels stressed and have to protect herself.
She loves sleeping on the bed and has to be touching my leg when sleeping in case I get up and she can follow me. If she is hungry or thirsty and her bowl is empty, she will let me know by pushing it around or bringing me the bowl. She doesn't go to the bathroom in the house and will lay by the door when she needs to go out. She knows who should be home and makes sure everyone is where they need to be before she is completely satisfied to sleep soundly. She loves car rides and sitting in folding chairs at any outdoor event.
She not a big fan of water but loves being outside and part of the family. Once she gets to know the smell of someone, she becomes best friends and gets excited to see them. She doesn't like hoods as it covers people's heads and harder for her to know who it is right away. She will bark and charge the door to protect the house but backs down immediately and gets excited. Its about the only time she ever barks.
She is such a sweet girl and this is very hard for me, but I know its best for her in the long run.
