NEEDS A RESIDENT DOG THAT LIKES TO CUDDLE
GOOD WITH CATS
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
PATIENT, LOVING AND UNDERSTANDING OWNERS AS KATIE IS VERY MUCH A WORK IN PROGRESS
Katie is a 5 year old ex breeding Bichon Frise that’s had a very hard start in life and is now looking for her special forever people who will help her overcome her past and look to the future. She is the loveliest little girl with the sweetest nature that has had lots of litters which is evident by the size of her tummy.
She arrived into foster in a terrible condition and has to have all her fur shaved off. After a bath this made her feel better on the outside but she was still the confused little girl on the inside. She is going to be the most loving little dog once she can be brave and loose her fear of people and the world.
Katie loves to follow her Foster mum around and see what she’s doing, she’s very interested in everything around her and is not fazed by household noises. She also loves to follow her foster fur siblings around learning and watching how to dog. She gets excited when they do, but isn’t quite sure if she wants that fuss or not. Her tail goes but she’s not quite there yet.
She is now brave enough to take treats from foster mums’ hand but will them back away as she’s not too sure what to expect, but she is learning and every day is a new day where she is that little bit braver. These things take time and all she needs is the right family to give her that time.
Katie is wary of people and will shy away from her foster parents on occasions, taking herself off to a quiet place to watch from a distance. She hasn’t met any children yet and we wouldn’t recommend young or boisterous children. If there are children in the home then they need to be older and dog savvy. Any visiting children will need to be made aware that Katie is still learning as she missed her time at school with all the other doggos who were loved and doesn’t know that they mean her no harm.
Katie lives with a dog savvy cat in the Foster and has shown no interest. She hasn’t met any other little furries.
Katie is 99 % house trained and will only go on a puppy pad if she can’t get to the garden. She sleeps on foster mums bed with her foster sisters as she likes to be close to them. She enjoys her food and is not food aggressive but needs to be fed away from other dogs so she doesn’t eat their food as well as her own.
Katie will sit with her foster family on the sofa with the other dogs but will want to jump off if anyone moves. As long as you are sitting still, she will stay but has one eye open in case anyone moves or decides they want to murder her. This will pass in time most ex breeding dogs are unsure of humans as they just expect us to harm them as they have never known any different.
Katie enjoys having a stroll and a sniff in the bushes out in the garden but hasn’t been on any walks due to waiting on her second vaccination which is due shortly. She quite confidently goes out the garden but loves it best when she has a friend with her.
Katie needs a quiet home where she can be given time to gain her confidence without any pressure. She will need at least another resident dog for company and one that wants to snuggle up on the sofa or in a dog bed. She would suit having her owner/s home most of the time but can be left with another dog for a few hours. Children should be dog savvy and know that Katie has never been handled in a kind way so will not understand a kind friendly hand stroking her and any visiting children will need to be monitored so Katie isn’t scared.
