PATIENT OWNERS WHO CAN SHOW HER HOW AN ADORED PET IS TREATED
Azalea is a 5 year old ex breeding westie that had previously never lived in a home or knew what it was to be adored family member. Despite her unfortunate start she loves cuddles and attention and can be very affectionate. She has really settled since being in foster and her cheeky character is starting to shine through. She’s even good with visitors that have been to the house and didn’t shy away from strangers. Approaching then carefully and putting her paws on their legs for a head scratch.
She doesn’t yet jump up on the sofa for cuddles but her foster mum thinks that she soon will as she is gaining in confidence daily. She loves the other dogs in her foster home and takes her queue from them. She is currently fed on soft food but will eat anything. She likes to do a little tap dance for you as you prepare her food and especially likes to steal her foster brothers kibble when he’s not looking or clean up whatever the children drop on the floor.
She isn’t playing with toys yet but loves funny sounds and if you pretend to meow or bark, she goes running around looking and barking to see where it’s come from. She is not food or toy aggressive and has been left for a few hours with the other dogs and has been absolutely fine.
Azalea hasn’t been for a walk yet as she’s been waiting to have her vaccinations which are now booked. With most dog like her lead walking will come with the confidence she gets from being in a stable home with another resident dog or dogs.
Azalea had a mammary lump removed on arrival into foster and also only has two teeth… but do not be fooled… you wouldn’t know. She also has a cauliflower ear as a result of an untreated infection before she came into our care.
Azalea has not been cat or small furry tested.
She does not like the stairs and currently will not walk up or down them
Housetraining is a work in progress and she can be a bit hit and miss with puppy pads. She needs lots of encouragement when she does get it right and this will encourage her to progress
At night she sleeps on a huge pile of blankets in the front room and settles well sleeping all night with the other dogs.
She is great in the car and has been amazing at the vets.
Azalea deserves a home where she can have fun and be the dog she has never been. She is still coming out of her shell and has been through a lot with medical treatments since she arrived in foster, but it is clear she is a very loving, fun dog who will continue to thrive and come out of her shell more in the right forever home.
