Little Maggie is a 4-5 year old ex-breeding Yorkshire Terrier who is being fostered in South Wales. She is finding her feet in her foster home and is adopting to life in the home. Maggie is looking for a quiet home with a calm dog for company.
People – She is fine with people, but takes a few minutes to come around to new people. She will shake when unsure but is fine with being touched and brushed. She hasn’t met any young children but we feel Maggie would be happier in a quiet home.
Dogs – Maggie would be better with a calm dog as a companion to show her how to be a dog, she doesn’t like bouncy energetic dogs as she gets scared
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – Maggie is a very quiet dog, who is happy to sleep in a crate or on the sofa. She has only been left for a few hours and is fine. She prefers to eat in a quiet area away from other dogs. She is getting the hang of housetraining and is currently only having accidents overnight now.
Out and about – Maggie has only recently started going out on lead for short periods of time because she is scared of noise and sudden movements and the big wide world, but slowly exploring a little more each day. She is fine on short journeys hasn’t been on long journey in car yet. She was fine in vets
Type of home – Maggie needs a home that is calm; where she can build her confidence slowly. She is a nervous, scared little girl but is not aggressive at all. She would benefit from a calm dog to teach her how to be a dog and would not be suitable to live with small children at the moment. She is a lovely little dog I’m sure she will grow in confidence daily and become a relaxed happy little girl
Maggie will be rehomed with a neutering contract and a discount voucher is available. It will be a condition of adoption that her adopters arrange for this as soon as possible and follow up checks will be done. She is chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in South Wales
