Toffee D2023-162

  • Needs a resident dog
  • Older dog savvy children
  • Patient home who will help her flourish

Toffee is a 5 year old Cavalier King Charles described by her foster mum as a scared, insecure but gentle and very sweet ex breeding dog. She is unsure of people and takes a while to warm to strangers she prefers to be around the dogs in the home more than the humans to start with. Her first week in foster she stayed in her dog bed all day watching the other dogs interact. She has started to come out of her shell now and is following the other dogs onto the sofa and in and out the garden.

She has a blown coat (dry porous fur and bald patches) due to excessive over breeding. A good healthy diet will help stimulate new hair growth and encourage the hair to grow back healthier.

Toffee is a shy worrier but once she plucks up the courage and decides these humans aren’t all bad, she will wag her tail and start to explore and interact with the other dogs. She’s a beautiful girl that just wants to be safe and loved and is desperate for human interaction and once she trusts you, she’s all yours and will follow you and want to be with you at every opportunity.

Toffee has not been tested with small furries or cats but due to her laid back nature her foster mum does not think there will be any problem.

Toffee can be homed with older calmer gentle children 10 plus who will respect her needs and wishes.

Toffee unfortunately has not learnt what toys are or how to play with them but I’m sure she’d love to learn in time.

Toffee has not been out on a lead yet as she is not fully vaccinated but she is walking around the house on a lead and harness. Being comfortable walking outside in the big scary world will be a work in progress it could take months and it’s important her new home realises this is going to take time patience and reassurance.

Toffee sleeps on the floor in her foster mums bedroom in a dog bed with the other dogs in the house she sleeps soundly all night.

Toffee is 100% toilet trained and will hold it as long as she needs to that’s why it’s important that she has access to the garden so she can go outside to toilet when necessary

Toffee is fed separately from the other dogs in the foster home due to her allowing the other dogs to share her food if they’d like to, so to make sure she’s getting what she needs she’s fed in another room.

Toffee is looking for a patient loving easy going home that will allow her to decompress and learn to trust them. A home with other resident dog/dogs that will not have a problem with toffee following them around constantly watching and learning from them as well as being a snuggle Buddy. She really wouldn’t flourish living in a home with a dog that didn’t like having other dogs snuggling next to them or dogs that don’t like sharing their humans.
