Temperament

Just a regular gal about town.

Rhu ("roo") is a do-anything dog.  Reliable and steady, she is a confident and mellow sort of dog who adapts well wherever she goes. From early puppyhood, Rhu has come to "work" every day, where while everyone else toils she sets about her own duties: being a decorative element who placidly greets customers from all walks of life. She is unobtrusive, too familiar with the comings and goings of strangers to feel they warrant much interest, but pleased to be spoken to and pet. She adores her people, greeting her favorites with enthusiasm and wiggly, happy dances. 
 

Gentle with puppies, and patient with young dogs, she serves as an adult mentor to friends bringing up young puppies as a neutral adult who engages in just enough play without risking the health or wellbeing of an infant dog. She's rational, more than anything else. As with many spitz-type dogs, training activities such as skills in obedience or general trick training are ones where she's been encouraged to play along with the game, but it was not an inherent bidibility that motivated her. Rather, she genuinely enjoys any activity where she is included: she likes working with her people, however she isn't so insensible that she doesn't demand a fee (cookies. it's cookies.) 
 

She's shown successfully in conformation, an activity she probably enjoys as running in the big circle and being pet is genuinely pleasurable. Also, she is plied with cookies. There is a theme there, obviously enough. In a fairly short career, Rhu has swept up 7 Best in Open Show wins and ten additional grou placements. She is the first US Bred Eurasier to earn their Certificate of Merit, the second CM holder in breed, and the first in breed to earn their CM2-- in six weekends! From here, we anticipate continuing to show but hope to prioritize a new puppy soon. For Rhu herself, we hope to send her into the Junior Handling ring as she is adaptable and savvy enough to play Dog Show regardless of who is at the other end of the leash. It's a very fun game for her, and the opportunity to present FSS Breeds to a wider audience while allowing a Junior Handler to showcase their skills as a handler feels like a win for everyone. Particularly Rhu, who will likely be plied heavily which chicken to her endless delight.
 

Outside of her various professions of Office Dog and Show Dog, she enjoys a long meandering walk in the city or town, offleash where appropriate and legal, as well as swimming, herding the cats and cozying up to every barista at every coffee shop we pass by, as the reinforcement history is strong and folks in aprons give cookies and whipped cream.
