My name is Tuppence and I am a leggy blonde! Like any blonde I’m smart, silly, drop dead gorgeous and as an added bonus, a big cuddle bug. Do I love pats? Do I ever!

I’m not a fussy eater and I love my food sooo much! My foster mum has been training me with my breakfast every day so I’m learning lots of tricks – I can sit, spin, and I’ll even sit between your legs if you’ll let me.

I really love playing with my foster brother. He’s a staffy so a bit of a bull dozer, but I hold my own with him. I’d really love to have another doggy pal, but I could be ok as an only dog if I don’t have to be alone for whole days.

If I fits, I sits.

I’m not a big fan of cats or other small animals so if you’re interested in taking things further it’s probably best if you don’t have one. I really like other dogs once I’ve met them. My foster Mum is using patience and lots of treats to help me get close to them without barking, but I’ll get there with your help – and then I’m a faithful pal.

My foster mum has been helping me build my confidence a lot and it’s really important that you keep working on that with me. Don’t worry – she’ll teach you how, and if you have some experience with training other dogs that would be awesome!

What I really love is urban agility, like a little kid. I love to climb and jump up and balance standing on different surfaces that my mum finds when we are out and about because it means I use my brain and not just my feet. It also helps me be distracted and more confident if there’s an unfamiliar dog around.

I do really like young people, but I tend to jump up so I’m probably not much good in a home with very small kids (under 10-11) because I wouldn’t want to knock them over. It’s also really important that you have solid fences as I’ve been known to dig a bit.

If you think you’d like to meet up for real, then send my foster mum an email with some information about yourself – I’d reply to you myself but it’s hard to type with claws and no thumbs.

My name is Chuckles, and my foster mum thinks I could be the happiest dog in the world. I’m ever so goofy and don’t really know how to use my long legs… yes, I do fall over my own feet at times when I’m super excited.

I love to play and run, and play some more, oh and throw in a swim too. I’m really just a big silly puppy. My foster mum reckons I’d make a great Disney dog.

Although I am the happiest dog in the world, I’m also very very shy and new people scare me lots. It takes me a little bit of time to come round, but I have lots of love to give if you are willing to let me show you. I’m also a bit scared of the big wide world so I’m currently getting out and about a bit to broaden my horizons.

chucksp

I absolutely love to play and spend time with other dogs, and when I’m around them I tend to forget a bit that I’m scared of the world. I did meet a crazy cat the other day and I had to run for my life as I think it wanted to eat me.

I’m looking for a home with another dog as it will help with my confidence and my mum thinks I’ll be lots happier. I also need someone that will continue with my training, I still have lots and lots to learn. I’d love a home where I can be included with the family and I sleep ever so quietly in my crate, oh OK I have a little whinge at first but then I settle down and just go to sleep.

If you would like to know more about me, contact my foster mum, she will be happy to tell you all.

Bronze Dogs

Nov 20, 2011

Bronze dogs in this category have sound temperaments but will have some quirks that need ironing out by their new family. Bronze dogs are usually active and require daily training and guidance by their new owner. Bronze dogs may be dogs that have had a difficult start in life as they may have never received any training, been neglected, under socialised or even abused. Bronze dogs can also be some of the most rewarding dogs to adopt.
A Bronze dog may suit you/your family if you:

* have access to and be willing to seek professional training advice if required (such as one on one training)

* have solid 5 foot minimum fences

* can provide daily exercise and daily training for your new dog

* have owned more than one dog before or completed training with previous dogs

* have another dog in your home that has no behaviour problems

* do not have young children in your home
