She’ll be 5 months on Dec. 6.
She likes going places and exploring. But people are so touchy.
When she was about 10 weeks old a young woman saw her and screamed, “Omg! Can I meet your puppy?!?” I said sure. The woman ran with arms flapping, scooped Zelda up in her arms and hugged her. It happened so fast. It was over before I could react. Zelda was so frightened by that. The woman apologized for her behavior.
I’m not sure if that experience has anything to do with the way she brushes hands off or not.
As long as people are just talking to her, she’s fine.
UH oh, my bad ... it was many, many years ago but I was that guy/girl! I'd just lost my Boxer/Bully, Stewie mix in an automobile accident, it was my fault. I failed Stewie he was to smart and I thought he understood more that he did???
But rescue day event and a lady was walking a young Bull Dog! I screamed, ran at the dog from 10 yards away and slid into him grabbed him by the face and said face to face,"Who's a good boy???" The dog was of course startled at first and tried to step back??? But I had him by the face but he recovered quickly and started licking me and seemed quite happy.
Finally, getting a grip ... I realized what I had done and apologized and explained. Honestly I moved so fast that few could have stopped me??? To fast and a first base slide ... WTH??? Most likely that's kinda why I tend to stop 5 feet away and do a body block (step in front of my dog) in the beginning ... just in case???
So yeah, I get it, still that type of craziness is not the norm??? Most likely what you saw was a once in a lifetime occurrence??? I've never done anything like that again and most likely that lady won't either??? It just takes a bit more effort on your part to keep people out of his face. You just need to show her, that everyone is not an "ambush petter???"
