Flower Lion Farm's (FLF) "Apple" is carrying the sobriquet of Althea while she is staying in the Timber's of Fennario. We will be hosting a litter with Crack O' Noon kennels, bringing more of those fantastic Colorado Mountain Dog genes into our breeding program.

Temperament evaluations are begun the second our dogs walk through our door. We begin to record observed behavior as soon as the pups are born.  Through careful observation of the dog's "baseline" reactions and inherent coping mechanisms, we can gain an at-a-glance understanding of the dog's behaviors  before and after our influence.

1. Loves people, will gladly go to a person before she interacts with other dogs.  Loves food too, highly food motivated

2. Will follow closley, desiring to be a part of what you are doing.

3. Holds still and waits. Fearful of reprimand she will hold still for a harsh tone, but wiggles out of your grasp otherwise.

4. Waits by the edge of the fray for attention, is unassuming. A wall flower unless engaged.

5. As long as the emotion is happy, she's very upfront with her feelings. She hides or ignores most other emotional responses.

6. Tasking may be hard for her to grasp. I need a little more time with her one n one.  She will perform, but tasking might call too much attention to herself and she wouldn't like that.

7. Resistent to feeling discomfort, doesn't complain when she does. Responds slowly to touch "cues" like being tapped or directed.

8. Sounds don't bother her a bit. OK with Thunder and has a stable response to human loudness like cars and metal clanging.  

9. Doesn't spot things right away...if she does she does not react to it.  Follows people with her eyes easily but cannot follow a toy thrown to it's end point.

10. Stability is her most present attribute. Very solid andunflappable.
