Meriwether is an extremely smart dog with a calm, devoted sweetness. She has an excellent memory and does not forget what she is taught. She is on the submissive side of the spectrum and she easily submits to another's will. She is a follower, not a leader. She is not bold and lacks some confidence, however, she enjoys affection from others and is not shy around people she doesn't know. She prefers intimate one-on-one relationships, rather than superficial, lively gatherings. She is not quite confident in herself and is initially nervous about different places, people, or other dogs. Meriwether is bonded to her owners. She is fairly calm and has a lot of patience to handle when she needs to wait. She is not energetic. Meriwether is highly alert to her surroundings and takes in many things all at once. She notices a great deal happening at a good distance and uses clear discerning skills to make decisions simply by watching how others interact. She is not much interested in playing and is more on the serious side of life, although she loves to go for walks and run down the trail. Meriwether is not sound sensitive and does not instinctively fear thunder or gun shots. She has a high pain threshold and she can take a lot of pressure before she communicates.
