Queen Daisy, as we like to call her, is twelve pounds of activity and affection. Her royalty will pick the largest and fluffiest dog bed suited for her foster brothers, but she thinks is just perfect for her majesty. She came to us very quiet and reserved, but we realized this was a ruse as her antibiotics took care of her shelter kennel cough. When she's released from her crate in the mornings, she bursts out performing 360 twists and scampers for the door zooming outside for her morning break. She enthusiastically inhales all of her food, and is always ready at our feet, to help us keep the kitchen floor clean while we meal prep.
She is a Beagle mix. Although the vet said Beagle/Aussie, we suspect there is some Whippet in her bloodline given her long legs and brindle coat accents. She has the Beagle nose (but not the Beagle bark), intently sniffing every corner of the house. She'll relax quietly in the house after she gets the morning zoomies out of her system, and she'll have bursts of energy throughout the day, especially with stimulation. She's playful with her foster brothers, both with toys and tug-of-war and loves to dare them into wrestling as she sneak attacks them in the yard.
She's fairly well behaved but would do well in a puppy obedience class. We haven't tested her with children, but we suspect she probably wouldn't be great with small kids given her energy level and concern that she'd knocked them over. We have also observed her nipping at the heels of our dogs. We haven't tested her with cats. We crate her at night or while away from the house. Although she'll fuss for 5-10 minutes, she settles down and will sleep throughout the night. She is still young enough that she wants to get the day started around eight. She is well potty-trained with consistent and regular breaks. She also limits her chewing to dog toys. She is small enough to picked up and snuggled.
