Thank you, Christine, for tagging me (sending you LOVE)...
Hello and welcome to EBN...GOD bless you for rescuing Daisy and giving her a
loving home. As a new EB owner, there is a big learning curve but you have EBN
to help you learn fast I have rehomed two bullies by now, Cami has been here
a year at the end of this month. Both of them took some time to adjust, trust and
show their true selves to me. Both were just as sweet as could be and both minded
well but it was a revelation how much MORE they had to give once they finally gave
me their heart...it made me tear up as I wrote this, remembering! Since Daisy is a
rescue, you have no idea what her background is or how she's been treated. It's to
her credit how very sweet/loving she is AND...she may be older, like 4 or 5 yrs old.
Brutus had been rehomed many times & didn't know how to play, with people or toys.
He was learning tho and was a great bully in every way, such a gentleman and such a
big goofball. Once he opened up to us, he made us laugh so often and was very gentle
to Mother who has Alzheimer's and would drag him across the room to lay beside her,
thinking he was her Pug and fat with puppies and scold him, it was hilarious!
Cami was a former breeder/bitch for a kind & reputable Breeder and then adopted out
when retired. Sadly, they got divorced and neither could keep her so I took her. She's 6
now and is much like Daisy, very lazy and when her business is done, she too, scampers
indoors immediately. She will not walk or even stay outdoors, she hates outdoors! It took
Cami even longer than Brutus to open up, we really bonded deeply just 3 or 4 months back.
That doesn't mean we weren't close or she wasn't loving, she was but more reserved longer.
Like I said, wait until Daisy adjusts a bit more, your other dog has fully accepted her and she
knows that your home IS really her home, she'll steal your heart with her love & loyalty.
Read the great articles under Forums and learn about this awesome breed, they are so very
different. Please continue to share your journey & how Daisy grows with your love. GOD bless!
