SOMEONE WHO LIKES TO HAVE CLOSE CONTACT WITH THEIR DOG
Dolly is a 3 year old Yorkshire Terrier who was a nervous little girl when she first came into foster but her confidence has grown enormously. She is as quiet as a mouse around the house and will follow you silently wherever you go. Her favourite place is as close to your heart as possible. She will drape herself around your neck like a beautiful silk scarf just to be close to you. She is a beautiful young lady who would make the best companion ever. She likes other dogs but does not rely on them for confidence. When left for short periods and monitored on pet cam, she will seek the company of her foster brothers then for comfort.
Health history will be discussed with potential adopters
Dolly loves people, big, small and anything in-between. She likes to meet new people but will return quickly to “her special one” to seek comfort and confidence. Her little tail can be seen and heard wagging vigorously when meeting new people in hope that they will be kind to her. She doesn’t tend to play at the moment, just likes to be fussed.
Dolly has met children between 5 and 12 years old and likes to be greeted with a gentle touch but doesn’t like to play or be played with. She would be best suited to a home with children over 5 years who can understand that while she is very small and cute, she is not a toy to be played with or a home where children only visit.
Has not been cat or small furry tested.
She is unable to walk up or down the stairs at present and needs to learn how to in her own time. She will need to be carried up and down, however at 3.7 kgs this is quite easy. Toilet training is a work in progress but Dolly is very quick to learn. This will need to continue in her new home. Dolly sleeps in bed with her fosterer and will take up a spot on the pillow on top of or next to your head. She needs to be close to her person to feel safe and loved.
Dolly will now eat alongside her foster brothers and enjoys her food and the occasional soft treat.
Dolly has not been out and about yet due to her vaccination status and will need her forever family to be patient in teaching her how to walk on a lead
Dolly would like a home where she can feel safe and loved. Her special people would need to be home for most of the day so working “9 to 5” would not work for this Dolly!. She would need to have a “special one” and would be loyal and loving in return. Any children in the home would need to be over 5 years and allow her space and privacy and not expect her to be a play mate.
Dolly needs a patient and loving person who is happy to have her cuddles all day every day. She needs a lot of physical contact and reassurance. She needs understanding and a willingness to help her learn basic training, in return for this she will provide endless love and affection.
