Smile New Parents To An Adopted Girl!

Hello everyone! I must say we are both super excited. My boyfriend and I rescued a 10 month old girl from our local pet shelter! Unfortunately, she was left abandoned with her sister who thankfully was adopted shortly after we adopted her! (Shiloh). This is his second GS, but it's my FIRST dog EVER. She was prescribed to be from a physician to ease anxiety and depression. I must say she makes me much more relaxed after a long day at work! It's quite exciting.. I feel as if I'm a kid on Christmas. She's such an astonishing little girl. Right now she is 15 pounds underweight for her age, but with a little TLC we hope to get her right to where she needs to be. What I found surprising was how immediately obedient she was towards the both of us. She doesn't bark, at all. I mean it, not a sound comes out of her. We are hoping she gains a little spunk in a month or two. Getting in the car she doesn't have any trouble, she hops right in lays down and takes a nap! That's quite different from other dogs I've seen on the road. One thing that bothers us is that she is refusing to eat at the moment. She's extremely affectionate in the sense that she loves to be near you, but won't lick you or nuzzle you. She craving the company which is awesome. I've done some reading and I'm assuming she contracted the Kennel cough. Anyway, I can't wait to learn more about her, she's just so special to me.
