Progress Updates

May 22, 2021

She just arrived, we’re all getting to know her. She is active and needs to learn her manners, but she it not at all aggressive toward anyone, even Blade who is doing his best to intimidate her. She just turns it into play!

May 24

Everly is loosening up a bit now and is becoming affectionate. She is not a barker – I can’t say I’ve heard her bark yet. She cry a little when I put her back in her kennel after play, but settles down quickly. She has been absolutely quiet at night – a blessing since the kennels are right outside our bedroom windows and the windows are open at night right now.

May 28

Everly really wants to play with the others dogs. All the other kennel dogs, but especially Luna. Everly will go to Luna’s kennel and shove her snout through the fencing to lick Luna’s nose. It’s so sweet. they’d probably be fine together but I want to wait until I have someone else here to help with “introductions” and managing their play until we see for sure.

Everly is doing well after her spay surgery. When she was first released from Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital, P.C. she was one pitiful pup. And she soon began licking at her incision, so I had to cone her, making her just that much less happy. At one point she walked over to the fencing between her room and Blades, pressed the cone up against it and implored, “Help me Blade!”. He came and sniffed out the situation but wasn’t able to offer a solution.

Over the past few days Everly has steadily regained her energy and perkiness. Today she wants to show you how well she now obeys the “come” command (video above). She goes back for her post-op exam on Wednesday then will be available for adoption or rescue placement.

June 28

Everly is doing well with her surgical recovery and was de-coned today. She is everly so grateful.

July 10

Everly has had several meet-n-greets over the past week. For the first one, Everly got all excited about someone new being here and was jumpy. I had her on a lead and controlled her as best I could, but she was determined and the woman beat a hasty retreat. Not interested.

Two more came days later and Everly greeted each enthusiastically. But they persevered and Everly calmed down. She let them pet her, she gave kisses and she even went on a leash walk around the yard with each. They both pronounced her a sweet girl and are both interested in adoption. She has a couple more people interested in her. We’ll see how those go before Dennis makes a final determination.
