Hailey is an 8 month old female Dane. Her hearing and vision are good, though she has "intermittent" or selective hearing loss (doesn't hear what she doesn't want to). She is completely untrained and fairly timid. She also seems very willful. She is used to getting her way and to being the "big dog on campus." So she will have a period of adjustment as she gets used to being one of the smallest dogs in our house. She and Tillie are the same age, in fact they were born only a few days apart. Hailey is considered small and underweight for her age, but she is still considerably bigger than little Tillie. We have full vet records on Hailey. Hailey was surrendered by her owners because they both work long hours and did not have time to properly care for her. Hailey's mom worked at a vet, so she got great vet care. She is HW neg and has been on HeartGuard. We do not have Heartworm in our area so we have discontinued the HeartGuard. She is up to date on all her shots

We will be doing temperament evaluations on Hailey and will also start working on her socialization and teaching her some basic manners, such as on leash behavior, no counter surfing, etc., plus we will start her training. We will post regular updates here.

07/05/03 - Hailey is a very affectionate, loving dog. She gets along well with all our other dogs. She does not like to be locked away from her people, but has not been destructive or anything, she just cries a lot. We will be working on this with her She tends to be just a little bit skittish, but given the big change in her life, this is not really a concern. She does bark at any "spooky" noises, but is not a chronic barker or anything. Again, she is on heightened alert in this strange new environment and this will likely pass with time. She likes squirt bottles so they are not an effective deterrent to her. She knows sit and will come when called. She is crate trained.
