5 Things You Should Know:
1. Arizona was named for Phoenix, my former dog guide.
2. Arizona fears nothing. At just 8 weeks of age, she leaped down 5 steps without any hesitation.
3. For the first month Arizona screamed anytime we put her into her crate – it was a rough time!!!
4. Arizona is an extremely independent-minded girl. Even if she knows something well, there is no guarantee she’s going to show others.
5. It takes Arizona a while to get used to anything different. She still hesitates to jump into water, even if it’s a well-known pond.
