NEEDS A RESIDENT CALM DOG
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
NOT CAT OR SMALL FURRY TESTED
PATIENT LOVING OWNERS WHO CAN GIVE HER THE TIME SHE NEEDS TO FLOURISH
Tani is a 3 year old Bedlington who is currently a scared little girl who takes a while to get to know you. She currently avoids direct eye contact until she feels safe around you. She likes to wander around the various dog beds at home and enjoys a cuddle on your lap on the sofa once she has decided that you are her friend and will not hurt her.
Her medical history will be discussed with potential adopters
Tani can be very disengaged when she first meets new people and it can take her a few days for her to adjust. She is nervous around strangers and will attempt to move away if you approach her. This reduces when she builds trust in you. She doesn’t like fast or loud movements and gets scared easily bolting to a place of safety. If she cannot escape, she will cower on the floor in fear. She is ok with older dog savvy children, when she gets used to them.
She has not been tested around cats or small furries.
Tani is quiet in the house and likes to wander from room to room. She sleeps in a bed at the side of her foster mum’s bed but will make her way onto the bed if she is allowed. Tani is very much house trained but can experience the odd accident if she can’t get outside quick enough. She will go overnight and toilet outdoors on rising in the morning.
Basic training has started and she is a very quick learner, this will need to continue in a positive manner in her forever home. She’s a very intelligent girl and is keen to get it right enjoying the treat or reward when she does.
Tani is just starting to show an interest in furry toys, which is a moment we all love to see. It means she is turning that corner from a fearful little lady in her surroundings to feeling safe. She can be left for short periods but doesn’t like to be left alone for long and will cry and search around the house for you.
Tani has shown no signs of food aggression and will willingly share a plate or bowl with her foster brothers.
Tani has not been out and about yet as her vaccinations are not completed.
Tani would like a quieter home where her new owners are home with her to help her settle. She will need patience and understanding as her early years have not been the most pleasant and she needs time to learn to trust you. When you have earned her trust, she will reward you with endless love and cuddles. She would be better around older, dog savvy children who would give her the space she needs. She would also need a calm resident dog who can show her how to behave and help her trust. She needs ongoing positive training in basic commands.
