Mango D2023-171

  • Needs a resident dog
  • Not cat or small furry tested
  • Sensible children

Mango is a 5 year old Shitzu described by her foster mum as a  joy considering what she has been through in her short life. She has a mischievous sparkle in her eyes which I’m sure will come out soon. She is very food orientated and will eat hers and anything else around. She is on the thin side though so this is no biggy at the moment but will need watching.

She is wary of new faces and noises and barks but this is getting better. This world is all new to her and she is adapting well. She will let foster mum pick her up and do anything with her which shows a real trust. Her tail never stops wagging she is a really happy girl.

Like most Shitzu’s she has her own mind and is not a lap dog. She wants affection but on her terms. She is quite happy lying on the floor in her own space but will suffer foster mum putting her on the sofa for a smooth and cuddle.

She takes the toys out of the toy box but were not sure if she thinks they are her puppies.

She is not cat or small furry tested.

She can be homed with children of any age as she is laid back but will need another dog for reassurance and to learn from.

She is great on a lead. There are no problem putting it on her and she enjoys going for short walks. She doesn’t seem too afraid of her surroundings or meeting other dogs but can be wary of people.

She currently sleeps by the side of foster mums bed in a dog bed.

Toilet training is still a work in progress but she is getting there.

She is greedy with her food and we would recommend a slow feeder and for her to be fed separately. At the moment she needs to put weight on but this will need to be watched as she settles.

Mango would fit into any home as long as she has the support of another dog to give her reassurance and one she can play with when settled. She is  not the type of dog that wants long walks but does enjoy getting out and about. She needs patient parents to help her settle.
