Her coat is soft, like silk, and she could be a soft toy if she were not a living creature. In artificial light her fur glows like glass fibre. She is very alert and has pointy ears that stick up when she is interested with tips which waggle when she is running eg back with a ball. She was described by someone as delicate looking. He hit the nail on the head, but she is far from delicate in constitution, having come from a Traveller site, and she is like a little athlete.
Her only 'fault' if you would call it a fault is she needs to play all the time! She bullies with the ball and will put the ball where you’re bound to touch it with the next step or jump up and put it by you on the couch or chair. She will do this all day if she is not out and about, yet at the first opportunity she will be fetching and returning balls anywhere.She sits back on her haunches and keeps looking first at you with reproachful eyes and then down at the ball as if to say, ‘Well, come on then! Get on with it!’ But her very favourite thing is to chase a football, a light one. She goes mad and yaps excitedly as she does it with a Yip Yip Yip.She tosses it on her nose and dribbles it at speed as she returns it for you to kick it away again. If you take her over to the
He only fault, if fault it is, is that she needs to play constantly and bullies with a ball or toy to throw. If you seem disinterested she when you take her to a nearby field to do it she is jumping up at the ball you are carrying all the way there and back. If she finds it in the car she is playing with it there as she is being driven along.
When she finally settles down at night she is adorable.
Her owner lives in a block of flats for retired people and is not allowed to have a pet, since no animals are allowed to stay overnight, but he has trained her to be in a small holdall and not move, so takes her in and out in this way. She has been in restaurants, supermarkets, etc. and no-one knows unless he chooses to reveal her. He thinks that the people in charge know he has her but they cannot prove it, because he has been seen out and about with her She never barks in his flat; not even if people bang on his door. Yet when she visits me, his friend, she barks quite freely.
She a very clean little dog. If she gets muddy, she looks like a little scruff, but in no time at all, when she is dry, the dirt just comes off and she looks as good as new.
She looks like a Meerkat when she begs. She goes to church every week and is no trouble, but when we go up for communion she has to go in the bag or she gets anxious.
She is a mother and had one little girl who didn’t look like her. She has found her other half who has slightly shorter hair and is not quite as pretty, but he has the same sort of character though, unfortunately, Casper has been castrated, even though he caught her on her last heat. We know that she would make a great mother again, but it would not be at the flat because she screamed when taken away from her puppy to do her business. She would also ideally need to have more than one puppy because of the greater ease of giving birth to two smaller puppies. Her owner told me that when he used to wake in the night, when she had her puppy , it was to see Gypsy looking at puppy with ‘great big loving eyes’.
We attach photographs taken by a professional photographer to show why her owner thinks the world of her and why I am so smitten
