Profile

When I first met Mia, she was nervous, but fairly calm. The next time I saw her, she was in the clinic with many people around her. She was jumping up at everyone. Most people thought it was cute but I saw it as total insecurity. I did not allow Mia to do that to me. I took her outside where two techs said hi to her, but did not fuss over her. She was great. In the profile room, we let her be for a while. I noticed that if you went towards her too quickly, especially if you had something in your hand, she would get very stressed out. However, Mia would come greet us if we left and came back, and would sit for her pets. She would sit beside me on the chair, roll over and give me kisses. She also responded playfully to sticks and would take treats from us. Mia did fine with the greyhounds and was fearful of the cats. But I also saw how quickly she could regress. A volunteer that she is familiar with came into the room and Mia’s erratic behavior began again. She began jumping on the volunteer and then jumped behind me on the chair. When I tried to stop her from doing this, she tried to nibble on me. Mia is a very smart dog. So smart that she knows how to get around authority. Whoever gets Mia must know what they are doing. It will definitely be a process with her, but we feel she has great potential with the right owner.
