Despite my age I’m still quite spry and can jump a 5-foot fence, and boy do I like to run! Once I get going I don’t like to stop. If off-leash I will wander away and go exploring in my own. I need to have a very secure fenced yard to be sure I’m not getting into something I shouldn’t and I also need to be kept on a leash anytime I am outside of a secure yard to be sure I’m kept safe. I know ‘shake’, and am learning ‘sit’, ‘lay down’, and ‘kennel’ (though I don’t really like that one).
I like to be left alone during meal time as I really don’t want to be disturbed during a meal. Thunderstorms scare me and I need someplace to hide when there is one. I tend to like women more than men, but will warm up to anyone if given time to adjust as I’m a little shy of strangers.
