Princess D2022-96

  • Needs to live with a confident dog
  • Not cat or small furry tested
  • Older dog savvy children
  • Patient owners

Princess is a 5 year old King Charles Cavalier described by her foster mum as a very shy and nervous little girl who has the makings of a devoted companion once she feels secure and unthreatened in her surroundings. She has made great strides in allowing humans to stroke her gently and will quietly climb on chairs when no one is looking. She can be a real diva when it comes to food and looses all inhibitions to remind foster Mum it’s feed time or snack time. She is very partial to sharing a packet of crisps with foster Mum and instantly recognises that crinkle of a packet !!

Princess seems to be more comfortable in the company of males rather than females but this is being worked on. Any males in the household just need to be aware of her insecurities and allow her more time to relax and feel safe.

Veterinary history to be discussed with potential adopters

Princess can feel intimidated by other people whilst out and about and so we ask people she doesn’t know to approach slowly and ignore her. With people we know we ask they also approach slowly wait till princess shows a bit of interest in them and then offer her a treat which helps her think of people in a positive way.  

In the home Princess is far more confident and is very amenable to friends giving her attention. She also enjoys the company of other dogs visiting or staying over.

Not cat or small furry tested

Princess house training is ongoing and she is almost there. Initially she was sleeping upstairs with foster Mum but now sleeps in her bed downstairs with the resident dog and sleeps soundly all through the night. She has been left for short periods with the resident dog and copes well

Princess loves her walks and enjoys exploring the outside world with the resident dog for confidence. She walks well on the lead and follows her big brother closely. She has good recall and runs freely with the resident dog on a long training line.

Princess has become attached to the resident dog so will need a family that will give her time to form a new bond with a new role model and be prepared for a time of separation anxiety. She will need a calm well-adjusted dog as a house mate.
She is best placed in a household where she can develop her confidence with understanding owners.
