Make way for Daenerys, Queen of Dragons and Breaker of Chains! Ok, she wasn’t chained, but she has had a rough start to life, being tethered in a front yard and getting tangled up… now we have her in our care and she is a spunky little gal! Daenerys is a Mountain Cur/Pitty puppy and only a few months old. Once she is full grown, she will probably be in the mid 30’s to low 40’s range.
Daenerys and Meadow are foster sisters and she’s building up her confidence with that little diva around. She is still a bit hesitant on the leash, but can you blame her? Being tethered outside all the time with little space to move can be traumatizing. Luckily, she’s just a floppy puppy who is learning to enjoy life in a safe home with friendly 4-legged friends. When you pick her up, she goes completely limp and just hangs in your arms. It’s too cute! All she wants is love, and so far, she’s got more than she knows what to do with now 🙂
Keep in mind, with as cute as puppies are, they take a bit more work than a seasoned dog. Daenerys isn’t fully housebroken but she’s nearly got the hang of it. When she is about to make a mistake, she sniffs a good bit and walks toward the door. As soon as Foster Mom sees that, it’s time to go outside! It shouldn’t take much longer for her to be housebroken, so long as there’s consistency. Daenerys is a little shy at first when she approaches new people or dogs and basically belly crawls. Once she gets to know you, it’s all belly rubs and kisses! While she is hesitant to approach new things, she hasn’t been overly scared of anything.
Crate training was easy with Miss Daenerys. She even puts herself down for a nap in her crate without being prompted! Practically running in on command, she’s crate trained like a champ. As far as cats and children go, she hasn’t been around any but would probably do fine. Keep in mind she has puppy teeth, so the children would have to understand what playing is vs. aggression, and there ain’t no aggression here! Wrestling with Meadow is her favorite thing to do and she has learned to give the older, less playful pups their space. When meeting new dogs, she is very friendly and can’t stop wagging her tail, but she likes to stick close to her generation.
If you’re looking for a self-entertained puppy and have the time and TLC to put into training her, Daenerys will make you proud. She is an alert and playful gal but is happy to chew on toys and stuffed animals. Playing with other pups is enough exercise for now, but as she gets bigger, she may require more. Receiving affection is where her happy place is and she likes curling up on the couch with Foster Mom. Show little Daenerys how to love and she’ll be yours forever!
