ADELA IS A WORK IN PROGRESS SO NEEDS A PATIENT HOME WITH LOVING PARENTS
Adela is a 5 year old King Cavalier described by her foster mum as the sweetest little poppet and one look at her pretty little face and soulful eyes will melt your heart for sure. She was very nervous and hand shy when she first arrived and would cower away from any human interaction. She is now starting to gradually interact with her humans and is learning that life in a home is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. The day she rolled around the garden on her back as if to celebrate her freedom is a day her foster mum will cherish forever.
Adela does have a heart murmur which does not at present require medication. This does need to be closely monitored in future.
Adela was quite shut down when she first came to rescue but gradually, she is beginning to come out of her shell. She has bonded well with her foster mum and her tail wags when she hears her voice. She now enjoys ear tickles and being smoothed on her terms. She has met several visitors to her foster mums house and she has on occasion tentatively approached them to say hello. She responds really well to her name (Della for short). Initially she would spend most of the time in her bed but now she happily sits sprawled out on the sofa next to foster Mum watching tv in the evenings.
Della has met her foster Mums young grandson and although she didn’t interact with him she was happy to spend time with him in the garden and wasn’t fazed by his boisterous play.
Adela lives with four cats. She has accepted them as part of the house she lives in but doesn’t interact with them.
Adela is more or less housetrained. She has had the odd accident when foster mum was out but she mostly takes herself outside. She has been left for a few hours and has been absolutely fine with the other dogs. She sleeps in the kitchen with her foster brother at night and she is good as gold. She’s starting to enjoy the comforts of living in a home and it’s wonderful to see her gradually starting to relax.
Adela has yet to go out on a lead. She is very wary of a lead so this is something that her new family must be willing to work on.
Adela needs a home with at least one other friendly resident dog who will help her to continue to learn the joys of being in a loving home. She needs someone who understands the patience needed to allow her to come out of her shell and flourish in her own time. Someone home most of the day or at least part time in order to work with this. She really is a lovely little girl who will be an amazing addition to the right home. She has the sweetest nature and so much to give and if you’re willing to help her on her journey she will reward with a lifetime of love.
