POTENTIAL ADOPTERS MUST BE PREPARED TO TRAVEL TO MEET BETTY
COULD BE AN ONLY DOG
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
NOT CAT TESTED BUT HAS BEEN GOOD WITH CHICKENS AND RABBITS
LOVING AND PATIENT OWNERS WHO WILL HELP HER BLOSSOM
Betty is a 5 year old Cocker Spaniel described by her foster mum as a gentle, beautiful girl who has a passion for food, especially toast and butter. She is still quite nervous and will shy away from any sudden movements and noises but is getting better every day. She had never been in a house before or felt love so everything is new to her but she is being really brave.
Betty is toilet trained and has access to the garden at all times as the weather has been nice for it to be open. She is also clean throughout the night. She loves her food but does tend to inhale it so her new pawrents would need to invest in a slow feeder.
Betty is good with people and comfortable around foster mums 12 year old dog savvy daughter so we would recommend older dog savvy children as she has been nervous of noises and sudden movements of younger visiting children.
Not cat tested but foster mum has rabbits and chickens and she has been great with these so would probably be fine with dog savvy cats.
Betty is in the early stages of harness and lead training and will walk around the garden with her harness on and lead clipped to it. She has not yet been out in the big wide world but has been told by foster mums resident dog that there are good things beyond the gate so she is looking forward to going after a period of settling.
Betty has really come out of her shell in the last few days in her foster home and has begun taking an interest in toys and has begun learning about zoomies from the resident dogs. She was unsure to start why the furry resident dog was running around like a loon but soon got the hang of it and realised it was fun. She now loves to play with the resident rescue dog and learns a lot from her.
Betty is crate trained and uses this as her safe space often taking herself off to have a rest and think. She is also happy to sit in it with the door open and sleeps in it throughout the night. She is always pleased to see her foster family in the morning for breakfast and a fuss and is now initiating contact.
Betty needs a home where she is the only dog as she bonds hard with her owner and wants to be the centre of their world. She would benefit from owners who are home most of the time. Someone who will show her that not all humans are bad and take her on mini adventures when she is comfortable and settled.
