Our Zelda was bouncy and affectionate. She enjoyed attention and would often enjoy couch time with us, even insisting when trained otherwise.

Her size and energy made her a great working / high-energy-family dog, but those same traits meant we had to be careful with her around young children - not out of fear of violence but that she'd accidentally do them injury from sheer exuberance.

While she had a thin, sleek coat, her hair would tend to stick in fabric.

Sadly in the last few years of her life, our dog developed aggressive mast-cell carcinoma that persisted after several operations to remove visible tumours.
