Greta D2022-184

  • Needs a resident dog to learn from
  • Not cat tested
  • Older dog savvy children
  • Patient owners as she is a work in progress and needs time to adjust

Greta is a 5 year old King Charles Cavalier described by her foster mum as a very special girl who is slowly adjusting to her new life. Currently all she likes to do is sleep and watch what is going on. She isn’t interested in playing and is enjoying following the resident dog around to see what this living in a house in like. Given time and love she will make a lovely family pet.

She is currently scared of people but will come and sit next to her foster family when she feels ready. Seeing the resident dog interact with her foster family is giving her confidence to try and be brave. She hasn’t been around any children in her foster home but judging on how she is currently reacting to noise and movement she would not like to live with small children but would be fine with older dog savvy children.

She has not been tested with cats or small furries.

Despite her nervousness she does however love her food and this is going to help in winning her over. She needs to be watched when eating or she will try and steal the other dog’s food and mind your own food too as this is also fair game if left unattended. Being a little food thief is quite common due to where she has have come from and does get better as she learns she will get fed regularly. She also loves treats and this is helping in teaching her new things and as a reward for good behaviour.  

Toilet training is a work in progress and she needs to be taken out regularly to build up a routine and get some of those yummy treats when she comes back in and has been a good girl. Positive reinforcement and lots of positive experiences is what this young lady needs now.

She’s not been out and about as she’s awaiting her 2nd vaccination and her foster family have said she is not ready yet to attempt a harness and lead. She needs time and patience and a fur friend to help her adjust.

Greta is a special lady and needs a special family who will give her the time she needs to help her learn how to be a much-loved pet. She could live with older dog savvy children and needs a sensible resident dog to show her the way. She is a work in progress and just needs time and patience.
