Jess is a 5-year old ex-breeding Shih Tzu girl who is being fostered in Rhondda, South Wales. She is looking for a patient home where she has another similar-sized dog for company.
People – Jess is shy with people to start with but once you have gained her trust, she loves cuddles and fuss from adults. Due to her shy nature we will not rehome Jess with small children.
Dogs – As an ex-breeding girl Jess would have spent most of her life around other dogs. She is sociable and happy to meet new doggy friends and loves the dogs in her foster home.
Cats – Jess has not been cat tested
In the home – Living in a home is all new to her so housetraining is a work in progress. Household noises like the television, music, washing machine and doors slamming will take her a little while to get used to but with love and kindness her confidence will grow. She is happy to be left for a couple of hours in the company of another dog.
Out and about – Jess has ventured out on the lead and as it is new to her this will need work. Her adopters must be understanding of this and be prepared to work with her as they would a puppy. Jess is fine in the car and vets.
Type of home – Jess is looking for a quiet home with at least one other similar-sized dog for company. Her adults should be around for most of the day and able to work on her housetraining and general socialisation. She will require gentle and patient handling. Any children in the home should be over 10 years old due to her nervous nature.
Jess is neutered, 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 Rhondda, South Wales.
