CHILDREN 10 AND OVER
PATIENT HOME WHO WILL CONTINUE HER SOCIALISATION SKILLS WITH DOGS ON WALKS
Elaine is a 6 year old ex breeding cavalier girl who is loving and affectionate and loves nothing more than human affection and attention. She loves nothing more than human company and to be as close to you as she can get. Her favourite place to be is snuggling next to her human. She will very often take herself off to her foster mums bed on her own at any opportunity and stay there quite happily.
Elaine has a grade 2/3 heart murmur which does not require medication at the moment and just needs monitoring going forward.
Elaine is fine with older children but can be unsure of young loud children. She has not been tested with cats but we would not recommend her to be rehomed with any.
Elaine isn’t very well socialised due to having lived in a puppy farm so out on walks she gets very vocal when she sees another dog and can be a bit feisty. However with a firm “no” Elaine will back down and walk on so this is something that needs to be worked on in her new home. She does not like other dogs in her face especially males and can get upset making noises, but laid-back dogs don’t seem to bother her. Elaine loves being in the garden sat in the sun but will bark at the neighbours when she sees them.
Elaine loves to snuggle on the settee next to her humans and will bond with anyone showing her the love and attention she seeks. She is fully housetrained with no accidents in the home. She sleeps all night next to her foster mum on her bed with no issues. She does not use a crate at all. She is not destructive in any way. She does not currently play with toys. Elaine loves her food like a typical cavalier and is currently eating kibble with a little bit of wet food. She can be food aggressive at times when eating treats around other dogs. If she feels threatened the other dog could take her treat, she will tell them off. Elaine has been left for a few hours alone with her foster siblings with no issues. She is very excited when her foster mum returns.
Elaine is very good travelling in the car and settles quickly, she is also very good at the vets. When out on the lead she walks really well. She gets very excited about going and loves to be out in the big wide world exploring. She gets so excited and over whelmed and will cry under her breathe when you first go out. Elaine is unsure of other dogs when out and about and definitely doesn’t like other dogs in her face. This will need to be worked on in her forever home.
Elaine needs a forever home that will give her the constant love and attention she craves. Someone that’s home most of the day that can take her out on lovely long walks and work on her socialisation with other dogs. She does not like dogs to be in her face so a young boisterous dog would not be suitable. She would prefer either a dog free home so she can have full human attention or a home with another dog preferably a female dog that’s laid back and happy to let Elaine get lots of love and affection from her humans. Elaine can be quite vocal and will bark at passing people in the window and neighbours in their own garden when she sees them. She seems to feel she must protect her humans and likes to make it known with her loud bark, so a home that her barking won’t be too much of a problem and one that can be patient and work on it ,is a must.
