Fostered In: Rhondda, South Wales
Nutmeg is a 6-year old Pug cross who is being fostered in Rhondda, South Wales. She is an ex-breeding bitch so has had a rough start to life but is now on the mend. She is so excited when her foster family come home, but even more excited when the harness & lead come out. Nutmeg is desperate to find a new home of her own.
People – She is little cautious when meeting strangers, but soon comes around particularly if there are treats (she prefers strong cheddar, but boring dog treats will do). She has met a range of men and women. She enjoys a fuss, loves being brushed. Happy to have all parts of her body touched. She is a little tense when having her teeth checked, but no aggression. She has been tested with older children and seems ok.
Dogs – She has had extensive exposure to dogs of various age, size and breed, on and off lead. Nutmeg has no problems with other dogs, she is confident but not desperate for their company. She is first in the queue when there are treats, more than willing to push in front of the bigger dogs. She hasn’t learnt to play with other dogs yet, but in time she might do because she likes playing with toys.
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – Nutmeg can be left a couple of hours and on rare occasions 3 or 4 hours without problem. She makes a fuss as her foster mum leaves but soon settles when she realises she isn’t going with her. She sleeps downstairs on her own without fuss, only making a noise if she needs to go outside for a wee. Nutmeg is house trained. She loves chasing/fetching and shaking her toys. She collects toys in her bed, last time she had clean blankets her foster mum took out 12 toys! She loves to cuddle.
Out and about – Nutmeg is well behaved when away from the home, on lead, off lead, at other people’s houses, in coffee shops, in pubs etc. Her foster family loves to watch her off the lead, she does zoomies when she gets out in an open field.
Type of home – Nutmeg needs a home with someone around most of the time. She loves company and going out and about. She enjoys her walks, so someone who will walk her every day. She will accept longer or shorter walks, so huge walks every day aren’t essential. She’s done a 2-hour walk without problem. She does like to be sociable, so finding places which accept dogs when out and about would make her happy – she particularly likes pubs/hotels where dog treats are provided.
A garden would be great as she loves the garden,
sitting in the sun, mooching round or chasing toys thrown for her. Nutmeg
needs a home where they understand her background as a puppy farm girl.
She would be very happy as an only dog. We think she would also be fine with another dog(s) – but we would be looking for calm, confident, sensible dogs.
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Nutmeg is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Rhondda, South Wales
