Pearl is a 5-year old Cocker Spaniel who is being fostered in Worcester. She’s quite a shy girl until she gets to know you but loves all people. Always really pleased to see foster mum when she returns home and gets very excited when she sees her lead. Chasing pigeons is her favourite pastime.
People – She loves all sorts of people but needs older children as can be intimidated by small ones. She’s fine with people out on walks and will sit in the queue for a treat.
Dogs – She’s fine with dogs out on walks but can be aggressive if food is dropped and there are other dogs interested too. She likes to play with other dogs by getting them to chase her. She can be possessive over her favourite person as far as other dogs are concerned so we feel she is better as an only dog.
Cats – Fine with cats
In the home – Grace is house-trained and sleeps in dog bed on the bedroom floor. She has started to show an interest in soft toys, carrying them around and nuzzling them. She eats everything she is given, her main food being tails.com with added veg and meat/fish. She has been left for up to four hours without incident.
Out and about – She’s very good on lead. Needs to be on back seat of car so she can see foster mum and will climb out of boot – definitely an escape artist. She has harness on and is clipped into seat belt by strap but sits happily on back seat. She is fine at vets.
Type of home – Pearl would suit a home with no other dogs and preferably an owner she can have all to herself. She walks quite briskly on her lead and loves a free run. At the moment she has 2 to 3 hours exercise a day over two walks so she needs a fairly active owner. She seems to favour women.
Pearl 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 Worcester
