Becky Lynch was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Very sweet but nervous and tense. Easily handle able. Did well for all medical handling and procedures
Lying in back of kennel with a low, tense body. She tolerates petting initially, turning her head to smell my hand, then begins to lean in and raise her rear into the air as my hand passes along her back. She rolls over onto her side and turns her head back to head-butt my hand. Sweet, warms up quickly once approached. Doing well!
