    You just recently adopted Mickey, right? I have noticed that most dogs need time to settle in to a new home before they start barking. Give him a little time and he may bark a little more.
    We've had him about two months now. He must be settling in slowly, as he wont even venture to the hallway or up the stairs to our rooms.

    Coming from someone who had a mouthy beeotchy girl for 9 yrs (love the hell out of her)... quite is so much nicer. Banks barked at everything and anything, even us if we moved and she did not want us too -- grumble, gumble, bark, bark (get back in your seat,,, is what it meant)

    Bella also does the statue at the stairs for potty time.

    She rarely barks, but when she does, she means it. LOL!

    She doesn't even bark when someone rings the doorbell or knocks on the door. She just jumps up and runs to the door. She will give a couple of low gruff barks if she hears something on the deck. I also heard her bark when an ice chip unexpectedly fell from the fridge ice dispenser. The thing that will most likely make her bark is if another dog is wildly barking, as was the situation in puppy class.

    I'm happy my girl is very quiet.
