NEEDS A CALM RESIDENT DOG
DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
NOT CAT OR SMALL FURRY TESTED
PATIENT OWNERS WHO CAN GIVE HER TIME TO DECOMPRESS AND ALLOW HER TO COME OUT OF HER SHELL IN HER OWN TIME
Cracker is a 4-year-old JRT that has come a long way since being in foster. She was nervous and didn’t want much human contact when she first arrived but now, she will sit behind her foster mum on the sofa and put her front legs up on her back. We call this playing piggy back. She’s still not 100% there with wanting to cuddle but is happy to be close on her own terms.
Her ears were really filthy when she came into rescue and is still having them cleaned and drops applied
Not cat or small furry tested
Cracker does not drink a lot but will drink a little if you take water to hr or a little water can be added to her food if there are concerns. She is on a soft food diet after having 16 teeth remove but despite this Cracker wolfs her food down like there’s no tomorrow so we would recommend that her pawrents get her a slow feeder so she can actually taste her food
Toilet training is still ongoing and she was doing well but has taken a backward step since being neutered. She will follow the resident dog out to the garden but needs a little patience while she settles
Cracker has just started to play and gets very excited when anyone arrives home. She’s not fussed on toys or dog treats but likes chicken.
Cracker has started to feel comfortable around people and is fine with children as long as they don’t bother her too much in the beginning. She needs to come to people in her own time and not have people forced on her. Every day she gets a bit better and given time and patience this will improve.
Cracker does not like loud unexpected noises and will run and hide.
Cracker seems to have a small head and can get out of her collar and harness if it’s not put on correctly, we would definitely recommend both a collar and harness when out walking to be on the safe side. She has just started to go out on walks and it’s taking time for her to get used to them. She goes with the other dogs and looks to them for comfort and support.
Cracker needs a home with a resident dog who can help her adjust to being a pet. She needs an understanding family who will give her time to settle and not be too demanding on her to start. She needs to find her own paws in her own time.
Vaccinated, Microchipped and up to date flea and wormer
Fostered in Port Talbot
