Truffles is an adorable 5 year old Shitzu that is described by her foster mum as a loving, playful character. She adores playing with toys. Her tail wags all the time and she bounces with joy at feed time. She likes all other dogs and is not bothered what size they are. She is confident but not pushy. She will take a toy from under another dog’s nose and is not bothered if another dog does the same to her. Truffles loves being stroked and made a fuss of.
Truffles loves going for a walk and gets excited when she has her harness put on. She loves to sniff and explore. She is very good on lead but can’t walk too far and sometimes has to stop for a rest. She is not worried about meeting people or the sound of traffic.
Truffles loves sleeping in a comfy dog bed, on a chair or the sofa. She prefers to be on her own to rest but is not bothered at all living in a home with a lot of dogs. She sleeps happily downstairs in a comfy dog bed and she hasn’t been heard barking yet. Every morning she is so happy to see you and with tail wagging comes for a fuss.
She is really good travelling in the car in her harness and seatbelt but tries to creep up to a human, so if travelling alone, would be better in a soft crate.
Truffles is great at the vet and groomers, she is just a wonderful little girl.
She loves to play in the garden, stretching out on the grass and playing with a tennis ball. She also loves toys and one of her favourite things is to dissect them. She has also unfortunately chewed the TV remote and another dog’s harness, so it’s wise not to leave anything you need within her reach.
Truffles has a heart condition, where her heart skips a beat and will need to be carefully monitored by a vet going forward.
Truffles can be a bit nervous with new people but once she gets to know you she loves having a stroke and a fuss. She is an independent dog and still likes her own space on occasion. She does not like being overcrowded so a quiet household would be ideal.
Truffles is fine with children but she is not a ‘cuddly’ dog. She likes being stroked but not cuddled. She has met fosterers grandchildren who are used to leaving foster dogs alone and has been fine with them but takes herself off to a quiet spot if they are playing. Due to her heart condition, Truffles needs a quiet household without young children.
Not cat tested but Truffles is so laid back not considered a problem. She has met fosterer’s cat and not responded at all.
She is house trained with only an occasional accident.
Truffles would love a quiet home, with or without other dogs. She would love to have toys to play with and someone around most of the time. She would love to go for little short walks and the occasional outing. She would prefer to be in a home without little children and in a routine so she knows when breakfast and tea time is. She needs a secure space to go outdoors to toilet and sunbathe. A home with a human who is patient and lets her settle in her own time. Once she feels settled Truffles will reward her human with an overload of cuteness and cheeky character but she needs her own space sometimes.
