We expected that since she's a rescue dog, there would be many things that would come up and we're slowly discovering who she is.
First and foremost, we were hoping Ginny and Sugar would become great friends. Ok, maybe we were just hopeful they'd tolerate each other. We quickly found out that would not be the case. Our cat lover, Grace, is absolutely devastated that Ginny scared off our cat. She was gone for 5 days! One good thing that came out of her disappearance was that she came back skinnier. We now have to keep the house divided; half is for Ginny and half is for Sugar. We have tried a variety of ways to try and introduce them and have them in the same space but none has been successful yet. Ginny still looks like she's out to get Sugar if they get within reach of each other.
Barking at other dogs
When we first met Ginny at the SPCA, she didn't have any response to the other dogs that were around here. Since then, she's become a barker on our walks. Unfortunately, it's unpredictable. At first, we thought it was just small yappy dogs but she has also randomly barked at larger dogs in the last little bit. We just feel bad when she barks at other dogs because it's a loud, deep bark and really gets to you.
Ginny doesn't know how to play with toys. It has been disappointing for Jeremy. At least she is able to go on runs with him and is so loving. But he would truly love it if she played with him.
