NEEDS A CONFIDENT, PLAYFUL RESIDENT DOG
CAN LIVE WITH CATS
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
PATIENT PAWRENTS WHO WILL HELP HER ADJUST TO BEING A MUCH LOVED PET
Isla is a 4 year old Maltese described by her foster mum as an absolute sweetheart. She has a beautiful little face and a super waggy tail. Seeing her tap dancing when she wants to play with her foster siblings is so adorable. She is very timid around people, but she desperately wants to get closer for cuddles and play.
She loves her food, and knows the sound of the treat jar being opened.
Isla needs someone to love her and show through patience and kindness that she doesn’t have to be frightened any more. She is very hand shy, fearful of being picked up and at the moment will run away when approached. Her confidence is growing daily and she is now sitting close to her foster parents looking for reassurance.
Isla so wants to have cuddles and to jump up and sit by her foster family but she is still very shy, but little steps are already being made. Isla will now take treats from foster mum’s hand, and will follow her from room to room, settling close by. She responds to gentle, quiet voices.
Isla hasn’t met any children while in foster but due to her very timid nature, foster mum feels that a household with resident young children would be too stressful for her. Older children who would be able to understand her needs would be fine.
Isla loves her foster mum’s dog savvy cat and will happily trot around the garden with him, and even let’s him lick her face!
Not small furry tested.
Isla enjoys exploring her environment and is very inquisitive. If Isla has free access to the garden, she will toilet outside, but does not ask to be let out. She sleeps through the night with no toilet needs, cuddled up with her foster sibling in a dog bed in foster mum’s bedroom. She is learning to enjoy soft toys and balls, and loves to sneak off with a sock or slipper! She always has a very proud look on her face!
As Isla isn’t yet fully vaccinated and still nervous around people, she hasn’t been outside her foster home. She will happily wear a collar but will need gentle introduction to harness and lead. She travels well by car, in a dog car seat with seat belt. Isla will need sensitive exposure to the outside world she knows nothing about, but with time she will learn that she’s now safe and will always be looked after.
Isla needs a home with a confident, playful resident dog to help her learn how to trust her humans and how to live a wonderful happy dog life. She needs a safe fully enclosed garden to play and relax in, and to begin her on lead training. She would like a home where her owners are around most of the time to help her settle and adjust.
