Hocus D2023-138

  • Needs a resident dog to learn from
  • Not cat or small furry tested
  • Older sensible dog savvy children
  • Patient owners around most of the time

Hocus is a lovely little Bichon estimated by the vets to be around 7 years old. She is described as a really friendly loving little girl who wants to be with you all the time. She is a proper little shadow and doesn’t like you being out of her sight. Due to her traumatic past Hocus will bark is left on her own as she fears being abandoned again. This is being worked on but will take time as she needs to decompress and make happy memories to block out the bad.

She likes people and children but is currently not very energetic.

She has not yet found the joy in being outdoors and exploring as this is all very new to her. She is happy to have a harness and lead on but is not keen on the actual walking bit. This may take time and will need another dog for her to follow and learn from.

She is either a bit deaf or has not known enough love or attention so just ignores you. She is an insecure little girl and just needs that special family and time.

Hocus gets on with other dogs but doesn’t really interact with the dogs in foster. This could be because she is adjusting or is not keen on these other dogs. In the right home with the right family she will flourish but it will take time and patience.

Hocus eats well and enjoys her food.

Toilet training is very slow and will need to be worked on in her forever home. She needs a routine and lots of positive reinforcement when she has done good. Following another fur baby will also help. Currently she will go on a puppy pad and it can be frustrating but she needs her family’s help to learn.  

Not cat or small furry tested

She currently sleeps on the bed with foster mum as she needs to know you are close. She is dry at night so is able to do it she just needs to learn how.

Hocus needs another dog to learn from. A quiet and patient home who will help her adjust to being a pet and not a money maker. She can be rehomed with sensible older children who will love her unconditionally and help her adjust. This little one just needs time, lots of love and she will flourish into the dog she was always meant to be. There will be ups and downs but it will be worth it.
