Updates from Foster Home: 

Pupdate 1: Taffy sleeps quietly all night in her crate in the living room. Even if she hears you get up, she waits patiently in her crate for you. She's very good about going outside and promptly taking care of business before running and playing! She's been crated for 8-9 hours during the day with no incidents or accidents. She's happy going for walks and/or playing with the resident dog.

She is very eager to please, but she's also independent. She's content being in the same room as you, loves pets and attention but never demands them. Taffy hasn't had exposure to children in her foster home, but she's so laid back that, with proper introduction and interactions, I don't think there are any concerns with her living with children.

Taffy is best described as medium energy. She loves to play with the resident dog and run around outside - she's fast! - but she's happy to nap rather than eat your house if you have to shorten her walk one day. We're still working on leash manners, but she's a fast learner. She walks right now on a harness.

LOVES dogs - she's only met dogs 50-pounds and smaller thus far. She hasn't met any cats in her foster home, but with a proper introduction to a dog-savvy cat, I think she would live just fine with them.

Taffy is crated when home alone. She spends most of the time napping and occasionally chewing on a bone. She has no separation or crate anxiety. We're still working on the typical puppy behaviors so she hasn't been allowed free roam yet.

Taffy is currently taking medication for Anaplasmosis. She has no symptoms, so it's likely just antibodies to the bacteria that's causing the positive test result, but just in case, she's taking a round of medication. She's really good about taking the medicine - no hiding the pill in cheese, peanut butter, etc - it's mixed in with her meals and she eats it like it's just another piece of food! She also has a patch on her hip that may never fully grow fur. It's been checked out by the vet though and there's no cause for concern with that, either. It doesn't bother her.
