My husband came across a stray dog a couple years ago and we still aren't sure what she is. She is white, black stripe down her back, curled tail, red tips on her ears. She only weighs about 45-50 lbs and has the strangest temperament. First of all, she was "wild" when my husband took her in (scratch at the walls, doors, windows, etc.) pace wildly, shredded Sheetrock trying to get out. She ran away for a week the first time my husband let her out and came home on her own. Secondly, I've never seen a dog more loyal or attached to my husband. She heels naturally, follows him like a shadow. When he says no, even if she is in a dead run, she freezes. With her loyalty she is also super protective of my husband and their shared space. Never been dog friendly, especially if they get in her bubble (she has adapted to our other dogs, but it took a LONG time). She dens. She has dug a hole so deep she can get all the way in it and then turn around. She likes "cubbies" or little nooks. Incredibly picky eater. Refuses bread. Really only eats meat, egg, oils, etc. some of her behaviors I have attributed to her fending for herself for who knows how long. She also has incredibly hairy paws on the underside, I mean excessively long. Last thing about her, escape artist to the max. Jumps 6 ft fences, squeezes through tiny holes to get out and go explore/hunt (always comes home) but we have yet to find a pen to contain her, so she goes with my husband everywhere (work, store, vacations). We once had a 4ft high chain link pen with livestock panels wired to the top and bottom...she pushed through a 4 in x 4 in hole at the top of the pen and was waiting for us at the gate when we came home. My husband believes she may have been crossed with a coyote due to her "wild" antics. I believe she may be white shepherd/husky mix, but can't be sure because of her small stature. Would love some extra opinions, any comments welcome!!!
