Mayhem's mother is a Norwegian Elkhound. Her father is not known but assumed to be a German Shepherd mix. Mayhem was born in the Howard County Animal Control Facility in Columbia, Maryland.
Mayhem is a very intelligent and michievous dog. To channel her intelligence and energy, she has been taught to do many useful things. In her repertoire she has:
- Fetch and Deliver newspaper
- Open and close door to deck to let oneself out and in
- Open refrigerator and fetch a beer
- Fetch Lead when wanting to go for a walk
She performs many tricks to get treats as well.
This is a picture of Mayhem when she was 9 weeks old performing the very first trick she learned: Sit. She is sitting outside of our old condominium in Ellicott City, Maryland. Close by the condominium is a little pond where she can be seen with a family friend Steve Bleezarde. And as a good American dog by birth she is brought to Washington D.C. to learn all about government. After her lessons, she is ready to take over.
