Sweet and gentle Gwen is excited to be entering her golden years with all of the new comforts that her trip to Canada has brought her.
Gwen is young at heart, but very low-key and calm and just wants to be loved. She is a bit shy when she first meets people but warms up quickly! She loves to soak up all of the pets and belly rubs her humans will give her and has the cutest little wiggle that she is so excited to show off! Even though she is calm, she is a bit nervous around other dogs. She is not sure how to play or interact with other dogs so is very timid about meeting them.
Gwen is very confident on a leash and has excellent leash manners. She doesn’t pull and knows heel, stay and come already – smart girl! She adores her walks and is not easily startled by the noises of the world around her – although she would really like to startle a squirrel or two if only they would let her catch them! Since she is quite interested in squirrels, cats are probably not going to be her friend either. Gwen is also potty-trained and crate-trained as well!
Gwen is very food motivated and is learning that food isn’t scarce – she tends to want to guard her treats, but she is working on it! Speaking of food – it’s a soft food diet for Gwen at the moment as she awaits some dental work – she may lose a few teeth, but it won’t take away from her beautiful smile.
Gwen is such a lovely, quiet, sweet and super smart girl. She is very low maintenance, obedient and just wants to please her humans and show them all of the love that she has to give.
