Mitch is a one-year old Cavalier King Charles cross who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. He has improved so much from the shut down little puppy that joined us some time ago. He loves to play with the other dogs he will play chase with forever. He loves to snuggle up with a cosy blanket.
People – Mitch is still struggling with human touch, he will have a fuss but even his foster mum has to be very gentle when approaching him. He still has a way to go with learning that not all humans are horrid. Mitch seems to prefers women to men. Mitch is currently living with 5-year old dog savvy children but he doesn’t go near them as we think they move to quickly for him. He has never shown any aggression and from a distance he likes to watch them. I think Mitch would do best in a home without resident young children.
Dogs – Mitch is currently living with other dogs. He adores the companionship of the other dogs, especially other cavaliers.
Cats – Mitch is living with cats and shows no interest in chasing them
In the home – Mitch has been left for up to 3 hours and has not been destructive. He is very well behaved at home and has no concerns with being in a crate. Mitch sits by the door and looks for his foster mum if she leaves the room. Mitch loves tea time and will now take food from his foster mum’s hand which he didn’t do when he first arrived. At night his foster mum will say Mitch….Bedtime… and he goes in the crate or climbs on to the dog bed and then he is settled for the night. As he was and can be such a frightened little boy every small step is amazing to see and be a part of.
Out and about – Mitch has started to go for short walks but still very nervous with people, traffic, spooks very easily. Ongoing training will be required in this area.
Type of home – Mitch needs a home with at least one resident, confident but playful dog that will give him confidence but also a play buddy. He needs a home where he won’t be left for long, Mitch needs someone around most of the time. He wouldn’t suit a home where people would be out every day. He needs an adult home or with much older children as we don’t think a home with small children will help him with becoming a confident dog. A home with very patient people that will be patient and respect that he will take a while to get used to them and appreciate that he still has lots of confidence building to do.
Special request from Mitch… a home with a garden please!
