Beautiful 6-year old Miniature Schnauzer Paige is being fostered in South Wales and as an ex-breeding girl is still fairly traumatised and will need understanding and patient owners.
People – She will tolerate being around people but needs a lot of encouragement before she is happy being touched. She has been bathed her, but again she shuts down as it is too much human contact for her.
Dogs – Paige is happier around other dogs and will only be rehomed where there is another dog for company.
Cats – Not tested
In the home – She is clean around the house. She sleeps on a bed in the kitchen with the resident dogs in her foster home and is no problem at all. She has made one attempt to play with a toy. She is desperate to join in with the other dogs but can’t seem to find the courage. This will come in time.
Out and about – Paige is ok in the car when she is held. She will tolerate the vet but isn’t that happy. She hasn’t been out for a walk as will not move once a lead is put on her. She is also terrified of wearing a collar but again, gentle encouragement and time will get her used to it.
Type of home – Paige would be suitable to live with part time workers but they should be home for most of the day to build her trust and work on her socialisation. She must have other dogs to interact with. Her new owners must have a lot of patience as Paige will take some time to settle and trust people again.
Paige 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 South Wales.
