Dax is Very Sweet And Very Feisty.
Guest Pet from Oakland, CA
How did you know that Dax was the right pet for you?
I grew up with as much as 13 dogs at one time but I never had a small breed dog. We live in a small apartment and a small dog is the most feasible breed for us. I always wanted Maltese that I even had a Maltese Calendar the year before we got him. My then partner ( He's my husband now) and I just fell in love with his picture on the Internet that we drove to his location that same day.
What’s his personality like?
Dax is very protective of us and he's also very curious. Whenever he's in a new house, who would inspect every nook and cranny until he's satisfied. He can both be very sweet and very feisty and he could be defiant at times too.
Do you have any funny stories to tell about her?
I have a couple, when he was still a puppy, about 2 1/2 months old, we would put him in the bathroom and place a doggy gate so he won't go roaming around the house and hurt himself. One evening while having dinner, we were surprised to find him in the kitchen cause we know we placed him in his room. My husband hid behind one of the rooms to figure out how he gets out and he caught him climbing up the doggy gate that was 2 feet tall. We increased the gate's height to 4 1/2 feet and he still figured out a way to climb out of it. We gave up trying after that and just gave him free reign to the house.
The other one was he actually saved us from intruders one time. He sleeps on the bed with us but one early morning, about 4, he just jumped out of bed and ran to the front door barking. I ran after him because I didn't want the neighbors to complain ( we live on the 3 rd floor of a condo building). When I stepped out of the bedroom, I discovered that our front door was wide open. Nobody could have left it open because it would be in the way if you go to the bedroom through a narrow hallway. We couldn't thank him enough for alerting us. No one was hurt and none of our belongings were taken.
