Hannah: Doing Better



Hannah is doing so much better since first coming to our program!
She came to us late summer with a litter of puppies – they have all been adopted, of course.  Hannah has needed more TLC due to the fact that she came to us terrified!  Just the swinging of the leash end would send her trying to crawl into the ground.  Here is a link to an early blog.  Now that does not  bother her anymore and she does well walking on a leash. 

We have spent a lot of time walking her, giving her time in her crate, letting hannah10_oct_31_2010her get use to being in the house – she loves to climb up on the Kuranda bed and chew a rawhide as much as climbing into a laundry basket of clean clothes with her rawhide!  She has grown self-confident and is turning into a fun dog.  She is going to make a great pet to someone.
Here is her alligator on back legs pose:  you can see how much her hair has thickened and grown since coming to us.  It’s a rich dark brown and much of it is really, really curly!  Short and curly.

Here is a video of Dennis playing with Hannah.  We are actually working in the garden to get it ready for winter.


We are not sure of her mix:  maybe boxer, maybe some pit bull, certainly a good dose of lab, and maybe hannah12_oct_31_2010some Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  We certainly have plenty of irresponsible breeders for all those breeds in our area.

She is working hard on house training and really likes it when we let her sleep in our bedroom at night.  She sleeps on the floor, but honestly, hannah7_oct_31_2010that depends on how much she rolled in the dirt that day and how clean she is not!  Hannah is ill named when it comes the lady like department  for she is all tom boy.  She can run, dig, race and jump with the best of them.  And she can roll around in the dirt too and doesn’t care how dirty she gets!

She is a dog.

While she has done fine with the smaller dogs, I’d feel better if she hannah13_oct_31_2010were in a home with another big dog.  You just never know.  She has been good with the assortment of puppies that have come and gone.  When she has a chewie, if they take it she will growl at them.  She eats in her crate.  Around other dogs, when food is in  her crate, she will growl.  However, I’ve stuck my hand in there so many times, right into her food bowl, even with hannah4_oct_31_2010another dog right there and all she does is look at me, wag her tail and give me a kiss!

She loves to be in the water – you can see her here getting a dink in the little pool by totally climbing in.  It was not a hot day.  We were preparing our garden for the upcoming snowy months.

Her brown is rich contrasting with her white markings.

Here is a nice photo of her.  She blends in with the autumn colors.
