March 25, 2013: Gretel is genuinely sweet; loves people, craves attention.
Riding in the car is her most FAVORITE activity; she associates the leash with going in the car; therefore, becomes very excited when I pick the leash up.
Must be ONLY dog, but was fine with cat at previous owner's.
The crate is her safety haven.
Very intelligent, knows sit, shake; responds to treats.
SCARED of camera; will try to hide and bury her face; it is thought that she is afraid of the flash.
She is currently on Cyclosporine, 3 times a day, both eyes and Prednisolone, 3 times a day. Recheck in 6 weeks.
