Wren was dumped in the country up East of St. Joe. She was thin and wasn’t using her left hind leg. After a trip to the vet, we found out that Wren had worms and an injury to her Achilles tendon. We were worried at first, but after taking her to an orthopedic vet, we found that she would probably heal fine with rest. This has proved true; she no longer limps and she runs like a deer, in spite of not being able to enforce the resting part…she doesn’t like to rest.

At first, she didn’t seem to know how to play, but she has learned to chase a tennis ball or stick. She LOVES her Frisbee, though. She tries very hard to jump up and catch it, and with practice has gotten better at it. She’s not too good at bringing it back yet, but she’s learning. When she’s outside, she loves to play with our dogs. She drags them around even though they are about twice as big as she is. She will also entertain herself by bouncing a tennis ball on the patio and chasing it. She tries that inside, too, and seems disappointed that it won’t bounce on the carpet.

We are guessing that Wren is about a year old. She weighs 22 pounds and is very slim with long legs. A friend of mine said she looks like a dog version Barbie. Wren was very shy at first with people. She would only come up to my son. We have had her about 2 months, and she has warmed up to us and will let us pet her. She is still a little uneasy if you reach out towards her collar, like you may grab her. She has been around strangers a couple times lately and has let them pet her. She gets along fine with all of our other animals. She will chase cats if they run, but will leave them alone when she catches up to them. She has not had any accidents at all in the house and is crate trained. Kids are not a problem, she is fine with our 11 year old, and I think would be fine with younger children, too.

Wren is a very smart, and pays close attention to everything going on around her. She learns very fast from what we tell her and also by observing our dogs. She is not aggressive to other dogs, but she is active and plays hard with them. I think she’d do best in a home with another young, active dog to play with. Because of her past leg injury, we try not to play frisbee or any activity that she has to jump for very long at one time so she doesn’t re-injure it.
