Poppy would always go to anyone and allow herself to be petted, and then at 4 months of age..Wham! she became the protector of the house, family and me big time!
If we are out and she is in my arms, she will try to bite anyone that touches her..and it is embarrasing I know! No matter how I tell her its ok, she wont let anyone touch her.
When someone comes to our door, she barks like a crazy thing and when I pick her up and answer the door, she is there with her growling and barking. It has got to the point where I put her in another room before I answer the door! They are dear little beings and it is flattering that they want to protect us..I just wish I had a solution for you, I am still trying to work out how to calm Poppy down with strangers. And the silly thing is, I socialised her like mad from the moment I got her!
