Finally, I can say princess is really doing well and feel completely at home. She has finally taken to the toys...specifically, Rudy's toys. She gets them and goes nuts...she is very aggressive with the toys, but she is having fun. I always seem to interrupt her when I get out the camera. She is much more playful and runs around a lot more than when she first came to live with us.
She also seems much more open to me and we have not had any serious biting episodes, since I used some alpha methods to deter the behavior....like holding the back of her neck when I picked her up and she growled or tried to bite. She jumps in my lap and acts like a normal dog most of the time, which is a huge improvement of the snarling bundle of nerves she used to be!
Rudy, our other rescue, fit in so fast and so well. I never expected it to take so long for Princess to get to the same place, but I think she is finally there.
