    It takes a few days/time for them to get used to their new surroundings. We brought Ruby home over a week ago; for the first few days she stayed really close to me. Now, I have to chase her down, she is all over the place exploring new things and "tasting" the remains of the chair supports Amber was gracious enough to leave us once she was finished teething. Your baby will be running circles around you in no time. Welcome and good luck!

    First, Welcome to EBN!! Emma is quite shy, especially out of her surroundings and she's been this way since I got her. But she doesn't run and hide. I would just give her a bit of time too and try coaxing her out with loves, lots of loves. Just like people, some dogs are more outgoing and some are shy. With Emma, she uses caution when she's not familiar with a situation or a person. She also used to be an excitement piddler when she'd meet someone one.....she grew out of that though. She will cower down too when meeting knew people. She doesn't do that as much as she did before though. Now she's just standoffish. But at home, she's a wild woman.

    Keep us updated. I'd really like to know how she's doing with her shyness.

    Lucy isn't shy at all anymore, our little monster loves running and playing all over the house. She especially likes finding shoes and hauling them to her crate. Needless to say we have bad to put the shoes where she can't reach. Thank y'all for all the responses and everyone seemed to be right about it not taking her long to settle in. She is adorable and our family just loves her.
