CALM RESIDENT DOG A MUST
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
EXPERIENCE OF NERVOUS OR EX BREEDING DOGS DESIRABLE
Kylie is a 5 year old westie that came in to foster very scared and would shake if you moved quickly or walked in her direction. Since being in foster she has come on in leaps and bounds following her foster mum everywhere. She can get upset if left alone and will howl and cry.
She has started to play with dog toys and anything that is left around. She likes to help with the clothes washing and will steal clothes from the washing basket to play and snuggle with. She also has a thing for tea towels, letters, trainers, puppy pads anything she can grab hold of she thinks is hers to play with.
Kylie gets distressed if left and will need another dog for company and someone who will settle her slowly and take things at her pace. She can be a little destructive when left alone and has chewed part of a wooden chair. She is a lovely little girl who will make someone an amazing addition to a family once settled into a routine where she feels safe.
Kylie has started to take treats from her foster mums hand and absolutely loves food. She gets very excited when she knows it’s breakfast and tea time and will jump about with excitement. She currently sleeps downstairs and wakes up usually around 6am or as soon as she hears movement upstairs excited to see you and to see what the day holds.
She likes to lie next to you on settee and generally be close so she can feel secure. She does have a favourite chair in her foster home which she sees as her safe place and will seek out her safe place in her forever home. Kylie had never been crated and got stressed when her foster mum tried this for night-time bed routine.
Kylie does have a slight rash which seems to be disappearing over time with the right food.
She can be shy at first when meeting new people but does come around with a short amount of time when she feels safe with them.
She has not been around children and her foster mum feels she would be fine with older children who know how to act around a little girl who is just getting used to being a dog in a big scary world. She can be very jumpy and will run to get away if startled.
Kylie is not cat or small furry tested
Toilet training is an ongoing process and her new family will have to support her through these times of change. She will go out to the garden on occasions but this will need more training and patience.
Kylie has not been out and about yet as she has only received first vaccination but her foster siblings have told her about squirrels and trees and although she was initially worried did say that she would try and be brave with her new family supporting her
Kylie will need a home where someone is home most of the time with a calm resident dog who can show her the ropes. She could live with sensible dog savvy children who are used to ex breeding dogs.
