Alyx has been a pleasure to be with. You would swear she had been in our home right from the start. She DOES NOT like a cage at night... now who can blame her I guess. She will go in but takes a bit of work. We have started to let her out at night and she seems to be doing ok with it. We keep her in our bedroom and by morning she has managed to get up in our bed. She is the most loving dog you could ask for.
