Three-year old Maisie is an ex-breeding Shih Tzu who is being fostered in Rhondda, South Wales. She is a very nervous girl and doesn’t trust easily. She must live with another dog for company.
People – Maisie would have spent her life away from people so is understandably very nervous of them. She will learn to trust but needs patient adopters willing to work on this and let her be friends in her own time. Due to this we will not rehome her with children.
Dogs – Maisie gets on very well with other dogs both in and away from her foster home. She will only be rehomed where she has another dog for company.
Cats – Maisie hasn’t been cat tested.
In the home – Living in a home is all new to her so it’s baby steps… Housetraining is a work in progress and she will need time to get used to the usual household noises of washing machines, televisions, radios etc. She can be left in the company of other dogs for a couple of hours.
Out and about – Maisie is still very wary of walking on a lead but is happy to wear her harness so she will need further training in this area. Time and patience is a must for this girl and plenty of love. She will get there!
Type of home – Maisie is looking for a patient and quiet home where her humans are around for most the day. Someone who is willing to work with her on everything from housetraining to lead walking. She will need to be treated like a puppy initially with regular trips to the garden to help with this, and gradual introductions to walking on the lead. She loves treats so with so many positive rewards, she’ll get there in no time. No children please. Maisie must live with another dog.
Maisie 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
