CALM, QUIET HOME WITH UNDERSTANDING OWNERS WHO HAVE KNOWLEDGE OR EXPERIENCE OF NERVOUS DOGS AND HOW TO HELP THEM BECOME THE BEST THEY CAN BE
Liquorice is a 5 ½ year old Poodle cross that has never known love or lived in a home. She is still very much a work in progress but she has reached the stage now where she needs to be in her forever home and learn that not all humans are bad. She needs to feel the love, patience and understanding that only a committed family can give her.
Liquorice is extremely timid around people and uses the resident dogs in her foster home for confidence. She is going to need gentle nurturing to help her overcome her fears and anxiety. She was never loved enough to be given her own food bowl she had to eat off the floor so now even having her own bowl and eating from it is a little scary but she is getting braver every day.
Liquorice is terrified of a crate so we will not be advising that she uses one. Toilet training is ongoing and new owners are going to need to take their time and use plenty of positive reinforcement for her to understand that she really is a good girl. She is currently unsure of being handled but is watching the other dogs for their queues and learning every day. Walking on a lead is going to be a milestone for the future but she will get there.
Liquorice is going to take time to form a bond with her human. She is going to bond with the resident dog or dogs and everything will change from there. As a rescue we have years of experience helping these fur babies become the dogs they were meant to be. It takes time and patience but we speak from experience when we say when Liquorice finally gives you eye contact and comes to you for attention you will cry. Then you can tell us and we will all cry too knowing she found those special people that she can love as much as she loves them.
She bonds very quickly with the resident dogs and to see her play and run around the garden is amazing. The dogs are what will change this little ones life and seeing them come to you for attention she will understand that you are her forever human now and you will never hurt her or let her down again.
She is not cat or small furry tested and we would recommend no children or older children who will not put any pressure on her to play or be handled. She is not lead trained and this will come with time.
Every day is a new day for Liquorice and she improves every day. When she first came into her foster home she found a corner behind the sofa and stayed there shaking now a few weeks on she will sleep in a dog bed in the open but away from her foster pawrents. Confidence comes with time and she needs people who will invest that time in her.
Liquorice needs a quiet home with humans around most of the time with gentle confident resident dog(s) for company and guidance. Understanding humans who will not force attention on her and allow her in her own time to come around. Liquorice will be an amazing addition to the right family and knowing as her family you have helped her transition from a scared little girl into a rescue ambassador will be worth it. We are always on hand for any advice and support after all this is what we do best with the right owners.
