****PLEASE READ THE FULL WRITE UP BEFORE APPLYING****
EX BREEDING DOG EXPERIENCE DESIRABLE
PATIEND, CALM OWNERS HOME MOST OF THE TIME
RESIDENT DOG OR DOGS A MUST
Brandy is a 6 year old Shih tzu female that has spent most of her life as an ex breeding bitch on a farm making her very wary of humans. She is not keen on being touched and would rather avoid all contact with you. She’s comfortable being in the same room as you and is happy to relax on a dog bed or on the windowsill watching the world go by. In the short time she’s been with her foster family she has made great progress but still has a way to go. She gets very excited at food time and bounces around wagging her tail. She lives in a multi dog household and has picked her favourite dog, a Springer spaniel, and follows him around the house and garden learning from him on how to be a dog.
Brandy is very nervous and prefers to explore the house and garden on her own and interacting with the other with dogs. She will run if you get too close or try to pick her up but is happy to lay in a dog bed or on the sofa in the same room as her humans. Sometimes it takes some dogs longer than others to adjust to being a pet but the signs are encouraging and she just needs time and patience.
Due to Brandy being nervous of touch Brandy will need an adult only home
Brandy loves being with other dogs and would need at least one other dog in her forever home. She has taken a particular liking to a spaniel in her foster home and follows him around so size doesn’t worry her.
She has not been cat tested but we can’t see there being a problem
Brandy is starting to show signs of play with the other dogs in her foster home and loves her food. She is toilet trained and happy to be left for a few hours with another dog for company.
Brandy is currently too nervous for lead walks as she is petrified of being caught and would bolt given the chance. Adopters would need to be happy to not push her and let her learn at her own pace.
Brandy would suit a quiet home with patient humans who are happy to take a back seat and let her develop at her own pace. Puppy farm experience would be preferable. She is a sweet girl who just isn’t quite ready to fully relax and trust yet. Brandy will need a soft crate for transport to make sure she is secure and can’t escape.
Microchipped, vaccinated and up to date flea and wormer
Fostered in the Pontypridd are of South Wales
Brandy will come with 5 weeks free Agria pet insurance
