The boys have a new foster dog. This is Magma, she’s just retired and is about 4 years old.
She is very pretty and reasonably smart, bullies Vulcan a bit (although she also wants to play) and ignores Raro. She has a beautiful coat and seems very fit and healthy.
She’s learnt a lot in the 2 weeks she’s been here, seems to be house trained, is less dependent on her crate, and figured out the stairs on day 3. She’s just starting to learn to keep off the kitchen benches. She knows there is a warm spot in front of the fire.
Good out walking, good with most dogs but variable with small dogs – if they are nervous she senses it and misbehaves a bit, but she does seem to be improving.
Very social with people, especially women, and she follows us around everywhere at home. She’ll make a great companion.
Of course, it is also pretty cool having a dog called Magma living here with a dog called Vulcan…
