NEEDS A RESIDENT DOG FOR CONFIDENCE
OLDER DOG SAVYY CHILDREN
CAN LIVE WITH CATS WITH GENTLE INTRODUCTIONS
PATIENT OWNERS WHO WILL GIVE HIM THE TIME TO DECOMPRESS AND BUILD CONFIDENCE
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH NERVOUS DOGS WOULD BE A BONUS
Twmos is an 11 month old Bichon Frise described by his foster mum as a scared little boy who seems to have had no socialising at all. He would initially run and scream if a dog so much as looked at him but he is now confident enough to follow them around and loves nothing more than exploring the garden.
Twmos is looking for a special home who understands that he is a work in progress and will need you to give him as much time as he needs to become the pet he should always have been.
He still doesn’t like being touched but is happy to come up and sniff you if you are sitting still so we are hopeful that as his confidence grows, he will come to enjoy a fuss. He is not currently a dog you can pick up and if he needs to go anywhere then he will need to go in a crate and be transported safely that way.
Twmos is extremely nervous of people until he trusts you. He is particularly worried by hands but once he knows you aren’t going to hurt him, he will come and sniff you and this will be how his confidence slowly grows.
He would like a home with no children or visiting young children but would be okay with older teenagers who understand not to rush him.
Twmos isn’t cat tested but he could live with a cat as long as it didn’t bother him and careful introductions were made.
He is a nervous boy in the house enjoying the sanctuary of his crate and will return to it if he is startled. He loves his food and is nearly there with toilet training if he has access to outdoors.
Twmos has not yet been out into the big wide world as he is far too scared and would run. He needs time at home in a large secure garden where he can safely sniff and explore. He will need to feel confident at home before any lead work is started in the garden. This will need to be done slowly and at his own pace.
Twmos would like a quiet home which is not too busy. He needs at least one other dog and kind, patient owners who will not rush him and just let him be. He has come a long way in his foster home and is now ready to continue this progress in his forever home. Previous experience with puppy farm or very nervous dogs would be an advantage.
