I know the saying goes after adoption from the shelter, 3 days the dog is weary of new home. 3 weeks they see what they can get away with and 3 month the real personality comes through. I've been doing loads of reading with shelties and kota is nothing like them. She is a one of kind. She doesn't herd anything, even ducks, timid of people who walk toward us on walks even when they ignore, her instincts is to turn around and go the opposite direction. She doesn't bark at any noise even knocks at the door. Doesn't howl when sirens pass by or other dogs. She is sleeping or napping almost all the time and she can't hold her attention for too long when training. (The longest we've lasted is about 30 seconds). She swallows her kibble instead of chewing them,yet she will chew dried hard meat. She's already had a dental, had five teeth pulled and has healed, but even before the dental she would swallow her kibble. I've resorted to using a chock collar when we go for walks because shell slip out of her normal collar if someone is walking towards us. When she does try to turn around, I stop and slowly give in to the chain so she doesnt hurt herself. Shell then just lay there until the person passes. I instruct people to not pay any attention to her as they pass. Once the person is gone, she's fine for walking. I'm trying to get her to realize that people walking towards us are not scary and she doesn't need to worry. Ok so the title is a bit off, but she isn't energetic, doesn't herd, and doesn't bark. Doesnt even whine. I know its only been two and half months, but I'm wondering what her real personality is after the 3 month mark. I still love her no matter what. When I cry or laugh she comes to me right away. Shell even try to comfort me. I'm wondering if she was maybe an ESA? Oh, how do I get her to like drivers? Its hard to groom her when she freaks out over the blow dryer.
