Courtesy Listing: Paisley is the Pibble Princess love of my life. If it were in her best interest she would live happily ever after with me, drowning in a snuggle puddle of love until the end of her days. Alas, it isn't meant to be. Paisley happens not to be an ordinary princess but a warrior princess. A 4 year old gladiator. 45 pounds of raw muscle and unconditional Pibble love. Squirrels fear her if they know what's good for them. Having only a moderate energy level (and a definite prey drive) she doesn't need gobs of exercise, but she excels with a walk every day, the occasional hike (she loves to run short distances next to a four wheeler), and something to do with her brain. She is a straight A student, people! That's brawn AND brains, which is more than I can say for most people (just kidding -- but seriously). Paisley is a dream in the house. With all the courtly manners of a princess, don't let her gladiator facade fool you. As long as she gets her moderate exercise she will pour tea neatly and drink it with a pinky up -- that is, if she had a pinky. She knows sit, down, stay, kennel, bath, leave it (no), come and wait. She would love to learn more. Especially if there's cookies involved. She is spayed. Here's the catch -- she's a gladiator, I mentioned the squirrels, remember? Paisley is cat reactive and dog selective. Good with all people, she WILL chase livestock. She is currently living (and doing it well) with 3 other dogs and 8 cats, 4 horses, 4 chickens and a turkey. As long as I'm with her she is trustworthy, but she needs a firm leader (not someone who wants to dominate, but someone who wants to understand who she is and accept it, along with the responsibilities of providing her structure and stimulation). I do not leave Paisley home alone with the other animals unless she is in her kennel, which she loves. Paisley also sleeps in her kennel and at about ten o clock will put herself to bed. She requires that you tuck her in, snug as a bug, before you close her door. You must also tell her she's a perfect Pibble Princess and kiss her head. I will be sure to instruct you in the proper technique when you come meet her. She is a hikers dream and she LOVES to play with other dogs -- HARD. She plays like a small furry wrecking ball which is her biggest problem, because if a dog doesn't want to play and nips at her in warning she will just as soon play as get into a tussle. It's all about expending the energy for her -- gladiators love to spar and she is no exception. She has gotten into arguments in front of me and it has not been difficult for me to break it up. This is why I say exercise is a must, though. Pibs are intense dogs, and with that intensity comes responsibility for their guardians. They are not a breed for everyone, and certainly not for the faint of heart, but for someone willing to give a piece of their heart, they will give everything. Paisley is a perfect example of this, and for that reason, and to do credit to my love for her and for this breed, I will say goodbye. Paisley deserves to be your everything, as you will be hers. This small, furry nugget of gold will happily die for the ones she loves and in return I will require clarity of understanding and respect for who and what she is in her guardian. I cannot safely give her the freedom that is her right while she remains in a house full of others who might be vulnerable to her more primal urges, which means all that's left to me is to offer her up to someone who's in a position to house her more suitably than I. So the time has come and my loss is your gain. I give you a piece of my heart, as this dog will surely take it with her when she leaves. Paisley is located in Dillon, MT.
