At what age did you notice her being skittish for the first time?
Where did you get a puppy from that young?
Did you pick the puppy out or did someone pick it out for you?
Why did you pick this particular puppy?
When she is comfortable with you, then she takes off, what else is going on at the time? Meaning does anyone else enter the room?, is there a sound, is there another dog, are you just sitting or are you playing etc?
