* Twinkie is not Apartment friendly

10/13/2020: Twinkie is a cuddle bug with a side of sass! Twinkie is very timid around new people and takes a little time to warm up to you. Approaching her needs to be slow and on her time initially. However, once she is comfortable, she has plenty of sass and personality.  She loves to play with a ball in the backyard and romp around with another dog.  Twinkie does have some separation anxiety and would do best with another dog to help her gain some confidence when being home without her human(s) or out and about on a walk. She has been barking quite a bit when I leave her for short durations, so an apartment setting would likely not be best for her noise level.  Based on the time I have had with her, I don't believe she would do well with being left alone, regardless of having another dog, for very long durations of time.  Otherwise, she is not a very vocal dog until a doorbell rings!  I have not been kenneling her when she is left at home with my resident dog, which may be trial and error to see what continues to work for her to be calm while the humans are not home.  

She is my little shadow around the house, wanting to know where I am and what I am up to.  Twinkie does great in the car - sits politely and takes in the view. She sleeps with me in bed at night and does great with her blanket that she burrows herself under and sleeps through the night.  She will cuddle if you allow her to!  If you work from home, Twinkie does great in the office space!  Cuddles up on the bed with a bone or a peanut butter kong and is very quiet and well-mannered.

This little girl is very worth the patience to get her comfy and confident in her space!  She is all about cuddles and playtime but also is fine just curling up on the couch or the dog bed to snooze when she wants to relax.

10/4/2020: This is Twinkie. She is a bundle of energy. She is 1-1/2 years old and loves to play with her ball and squeak toys. When she is tired, she likes nothing better than to give kisses and cuddle next to us in the chair. Twinkie does have some separation anxiety when we are out of sight. At present, she is on a medication to help with that and I don’t anticipate she will need to be on it once she has adjusted to her new home. A companion dog would also be a good benefit.

This little gal loves her walks but does pull some. We are working with leash walking and jumping behavior that she does when excited. Twinkie may do better in a home with older children as she may knock small children over unintentionally. She came with an intestinal infection and is presently being treated for that. She has improved and her stools are normal.

Twinkie sleeps in her kennel at night with the door open so she has freedom to roam the kitchen at night. I am not sure how she is with cats but she met two small dogs on the walking path and was not aggressive. Twinkie is a cutie and those green-brown eyes just melt you...not to mention those cute brown spots on her ears and matching brown nose!
