Fostered In: RCT South Wales

Hobbi is an 8-year old Yorkshire Terrier fostered in RCT, South Wales. He is a quiet, sweet boy who is terrified of the world. Having spent 8 years on a puppy farm he is understandably bewildered to have now found himself in a home.  He is desperate for love and will come to you for a gentle cuddle once he trusts you but any noise and he’s off hiding. Hobbi has a Grade 2-3 heart murmur

People – Initially Hobbi is frightened of everyone but given time he is learning to trust. Once you are sitting on the sofa he will stand with his front paws on waiting for you to lift him up for a gentle stroke. Any sudden noises and he’s off again though.  Hobbi would need a quiet home with no children running about and no shouting or sudden noises

Dogs –   Hobbi needs at least one quiet dog in his forever home to copy and learn from but he also likes his space and wouldn’t like to be jumped on so no young dogs please 

Cats – Not tested but should be fine to live with a cat or small furry

In the home –  Hobbi is an easy dog to have around. He sleeps quietly in a crate on his own overnight and would be happy to be left for a few hours during the day. He can only eat wet food or pate due to having no teeth and loves some chicken. Initially when he came into foster he would shiver with fright at meal times and he has clearly never eaten from a bowl so a separate feeding area where you can sit with him and reassure him would be ideal.

Out and about –  Hobbi has never walked on the lead and is spooked by the big wide world so this will need to be worked on in his forever home once he has settled and he gains confidence         

Type of home – Hobbi needs a quiet home where he can learn to trust at his own pace. It is essential he isn’t rushed as this will set him back. No noisy children and at least one other dog is a must. He would be a great companion for an older adopter who would like some company but doesn’t want to walk far

Hobbi is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in South Wales
