With People: Nyx is great! She adores people, loves to go for walks, loves to learn, loves to be in laps and will provide entertainment better then most programs on TV.
With Dogs: this is hard. When she loves a dog all is well with the world. Her bestest friend right now is an 8 month old female dobe, Lady. They even sleep together at night. They do not eat together. But they play and play outside and when in a large walk in pen.
She can be with other dogs in a live and let live existence but if someone challenges her or she takes an instant dislike to another dog (typicall the big black ones) then she can be like a little Tasmanian devil! I will say, neither she nor another dog have ever been hurt but they sure make a lot of noise and it can look bad.
So, we are thinking a home where she is the one and only with no thoughts of going to a dog park may be the best thing for her.
Participation in a dog obedience class would be great for her so she can learn to respond to her new owners commands and learn how to behave no matter what is going on in her little brain.
Pet Therapy! Despite her reaction to some dogs, training can help with that and she would be a great pet therapy dog. Teach her tricks, put on a little show-off of her tricks and then visit with people. She could b great.
