NEEDS A RESIDENT DOG
PATIENT LOVING OWNERES WHO WONT EXPECT TOO MUCH TO START
Cassia is a 15 month old Cavalier cross that has become available again through no fault of her own. She is the most adorable sweet little pupster who came to rescue via a breeder. She is a nervous girl but you can already see beneath the reluctance to engage is a playful sweet natured dog just desperate to come out of her shell and be the dog she should always have been with the right socialisation. She loves running in the garden and bounces around like a little lamb with her floppy ears flying in the wind.
Cassia shakes when handled by strangers and is nervous around people but is making progress. This may go backwards in her forever home and her new pawrents will need to support her through this. She is very hand shy and will back away if you approach her from standing however if you are more at her level she will come to you for ear tickles and chin scratches. She has been in her new foster home for two weeks and is already gaining in confidence. She will now jump up on the sofa and snuggle up to foster mum and her favourite human foster dad. She has also started to play bow at her foster Mum and will run around excitedly wanting to play but not quite confident enough to see it through.
Cassia has met her foster’s young grandchildren and although they are dog savvy it is clear that small people scare her. Their sharp movements and shrill voices seem to unnerve her a little. She prefers to retreat to her crate when they are in the room. For this reason, it is best she is not rehomed with young children.
Cassia has shown that once settled in a home she will chase resident cats so a home without them is essential.
Cassia is more or less housetrained but does have the odd accident in the home especially if it is raining outside. As she is getting more and more confident, she is starting to explore her foster home she is still puppy like and will occasionally chew if she is bored. She responds well to commands and is treat driven. She sleeps in a crate next to foster Mums bed and runs up the stairs when she knows it is bedtime settles straight away and sleeps through the night.
She loves the garden and will bark and chase the squirrels when they run across the fence. We have tried her with a lead and harness but she was very wary and only managed a few steps through the door. This will be a work in progress and hopefully with other confident dogs to guide her on walks she will eventually enjoy the great outdoors.
Cassia would like a home with at least one calm but friendly/playful resident dog who can help her to adjust in her forever home. Calm and patient owners who won’t expect too much of her too soon and can continue taking small steps to help her gain her confidence. She is a wonderful dog with so much to give she just needs time patience and unconditional love.
