Her brain is incredible - she's so curious, smart and very good at figuring things out. Which means, in a new environment, she will absolutely explore and test everything to see what it is. It also means she's incredibly trainable. And she is very food motivated. In the short month I've had her, she's learned how to sit as well as become completely house trained (she was not at all at the start). I do feed her outside though because she had somehow gotten into the habit of peeing immediately after eating. Not sure if this is a weird quirk or not, but could probably be dealt with with a quick post-meal walk as well.
She's also the sweetest thing, will follow you around everywhere, and she LOVES a cuddle. Seriously - she just wants to be in your lap or right next to you always. She's very mouth-fixated, and as such sleeps with her paw in her mouth (!!!) for comfort like a child sucking its thumb. It also means she's adorably snippy when playful but has never once even come close to biting me or any other human she's met. Instead she walks excitedly up to people asking for pets please! We've worked on the nipping, and now she knows to give licks for love and chew on her toys instead. She just gets excited sometimes that she's hanging out and getting attention (I don't think she's had lots of love in the past, unfortunately), so I've just had to set clear, consistent boundaries with her. Usually supplying a ball, bone, or some toy for her to nibble on instead does the trick. She has a night time lacrosse ball that she soothes herself to sleep with, and she sleeps soundly in the bed as close as she can get to me.
She's not super high energy but she is very interested in your attention and toys. She loves to tug ropes and chew on stuff like bones, balls, etc. she will absolutely rip soft toys apart, so I wouldn't count on her having like a favorite stuffed animal for long. This chew instinct does play out to household objects sometimes.
