Puppy Update!

Happy Thursday friends! It’s another beautiful day here in Northern California, its getting to be a little bit hotter than I would like, high 80’s low 90’s. I would much rather be cold than hot but I am currently in the wrong location for that so for right now I m learning to deal with this heat.

A lot of you guys have been wanting a follow up to my post about my parents new Sheltand Sheepdog, Indi. Well I m happy to report that she is doing amazing, she has fit into our family perfectly, like she was always meant to be with us. Potty training her was pretty easy, although I don’t live with my parents anymore, from observation, it looked to have gone pretty easily. What makes being a sheltie parent so easy is that they love to please their family members, she saw the disappointment in our faces whenever she potted somewhere she was not supposed and figured out really quickly that going out in the lawn made us doing crazy, exciting, happy dances around her with treats! So she caught on pretty quickly!

This was one of the last updates that we got from the breeder before she was shipped to us.

She is an absolute sweetheart, and I have to say with my brother and I out of the house now, I worried that we wouldn’t have the same connection with her like we did with our other family dogs because we didn’t live there anymore, we didn’t see her everyday and now she was more my parents dog than a family pet. But she imprinted on all of us very fast and we get happy dances like you wouldn’t believe when we come walking in my parents front door.

However she is the typical sheltie, for those of you that aren’t familiar with this breed. Shelties’ are not go getters, they aren’t the happiest dog in a room filled with other dogs or strangers, shelties’ prefer to stay by their family members and are wary of strangers and new dogs. She gets a little bit timid when anyone new comes into the house and tends to stay glued to my mom until the stranger leaves. She is the happiest dog you’ll ever meet, however she does stay true to her breed and tends to go into her shell a little bit with anyone new, but this isn’t a problem enough for any of us to try to correct it and make a drastic change, it is just part of the breed.

From the pictures, I m sure some of you can tell that she is pretty small! Needless to say, she is the smallest Sheltie we have ever seen! She is right around 7 lbs and doesn’t look like she is going to be getting much bigger. Although she is small, she loves her food and has been described by our vet as a little bit “squeshy.” Several people have asked us if she is a mini Sheltie, although we don’t know for sure and I’m not even sure if there is such a breed, what I can tell you is when we purchased her we were expecting to get a full grown Sheltie, 12-19 lbs, so we are not really sure what happened along the way but we love her to death. We have not trained her ears yet either, most shelties’ ears naturally want to stand straight up and you have to “train them to bend in the middle.” We have made a couple failed attempts at this and looking to really buckle down and get these suckers trained!

Next up on the agenda for Indi, is puppy school! My mom is currently scouting some good puppy schools to take her to because we hope to maybe do some agility with for the fun of it after she completes puppy school. She is really smart and super athletic and we think that agility might be a great way to help with her energy level along with exercising her mind a little bit.

Till’ my next Indi update!
