Injured What Angel has been waiting for since Marquez first came home.

Tomorrow will be 1 month since we brought Marquez home, and since that time Angel has been waiting for Marquez to give her cuddles the way that he does with the hubby and I. It's been hard for her as all dogs immediately fall in love with her but she understood that patience was important with Marquez because of the way he was living before and not being around children. This morning she got her first real hug from him and she was over the moon.

Trying to get ready for school, Marquez decides he wants cuddles from Angel.

After all that, Angel didn't end up going to school because the hubby forgot that the driver had today off so she got to spend the day at home instead with Marquez. (excuse the unmade bed  I dont want to s )

Extremely patient. This is a girl who has grown up with dogs since she was born and has only ever known them to be always there in her face one way or another and who all loved to be cuddled by her. When we first got Marquez 1 month ago she was a bit sad for her when he didn't immediately come up to her and was actually quite wary and not really want to go up to her. It made her even sadder when she saw how quickly he became attached to the hubby and I basically from the beginning and she was starting to question whether he liked her or not.... She just wasn't used to any dog let alone her new one being so aloof with her. I did some research with her and we found out that older adopted dogs can sometimes take weeks or months to warm up to their new owners so that made her feel a bit better knowing that it really wasn't personal especially since he obviously wasn't raised around children. She knew she had to be patient and to give him his space and not force herself on him and that he would come around to her in time. It was so funny each day watching Marquez slowly get used to her and how excited and happy she would be by it.

I'm glad she (and us) went through this because I feel it did teach her more about the psychology of dogs and that some of them do have issues that need that extra bit of work and patience and seeing how rewarding it can be with every bit of progress they make. They are definitely not like puppies who basically come home with a clean slate and no issues. She even said that she appreciates him more because she know he didn't have a comfortable life before and that he's also had to learn and get used to us and having a family. Watching her this past month and how she's handled this and worked with Marquez especially with his apparent issues/fear/not being used to children has made us so proud.

It's not only the staffords that get misunderstood but basically any muscular large molosser breed as well. When we had dogos, I can't tell you the number of people who hadn't met ours would be shocked when we showed photos and videos of how extremely gentle they are around children.
This is one of my favourite videos of Angel before she turned one with her big brother Kostya and sister Zoe making a short appearance.
