Version 2

Nellie is a sweet youngster who has recently come into care. When she first arrived she was very nervous and scared of the world, it would seem she hadn’t been exposed to much in her short lifetime.

She is a soft gentle girl, coming out of her shell more and more each day and she stealing the hearts of those who meet her. It doesn’t seem that she has ever been included as part of a family so it has been quite an adjustment for her, to be inside the house and every day things like the TV, kettle and dishwasher etc have taken her some getting used to. However with lots of patience and reassurance Nellie is learning that the world is not such a scary place after all and there is much fun to be had when you are a puppy!

Nellie is currently living in a home with children (7,4 and 3) and despite how noisy they can be, she seems to absolutely adore them, in particular the 3 year old, who she often follows around. She has only ever engaged the kids in a soft and gentle manner and has not once jumped on them. She does still get spooked by sudden loud noises and movements so this will need to taken into consideration. However she will happily approach the children for pats and cuddles if they are sitting quietly on the floor.

Nellie would love a home with another dog for company. While she adores the kids, she is most comfortable when there is another dog around. She is currently living with a 6 month old staffy pup and an almost 12 year old boxer. Nellie and the resident staffy pup love a good game of chasey or wrestling. Play time is one of the times you will often see her tail wagging at 100 miles an hour. She seems to be very sociable with dogs of all sizes.

Nellie is crate trained and now she has settled in, we are working on her basic manners and walking on a lead (which is quite a new and scary experience for her at this stage). It would be best if Nellie’s new home was one where she is allowed inside and included as part of the family. She will also need an owner that is patient and caring with her and can continue to her build her confidence so that she develops into a well balanced dog.

acai - 2

Acai is a bright and happy 16 week old puppy who has been in my care since she was only 8 weeks old.

This lovely cheeky girl came into care with her brother, already adopted, but she has had haematomas on both ears so she had to have them drained and now is nearly ready for her new furever home.

Although Acai was a little bit on the nervous side when she first came into care she is maturing into a confident little pup.

She is crate trained and sleeps quietly through the night there. Acai has lovely indoor manners, is house trained and loves to work for her food. She is a fast learner who picks up tricks so quickly.

Acai is very intelligent and will need to continue with her training and to attend puppy classes to keep her on the path to becoming the delightful companion she should be.

She loves playing with other dogs but is also quite happy to play on her own. She also adores people and is always up for a cuddle.

Acai has a lot of love to give and can hardly wait for her new family :)

shylatoys

Shyla is a very intelligent, timid and active youngster who will need some hands on training as well as plenty of opportunity to exercise and be stimulated. Only appropriate homes to keep her safe and provide appropriate training and exercise will be considered.

shylains

She is a loving, friendly, playful and people oriented girl, who loves children and other dogs. The need for some consistent rules to guide her through the chewing puppy phase will be a must. Inclusion in the family activities along with some firm boundaries around the house will assist her to overcome her timid nature. She is keen to know what she can and can’t do, is a quick learner and is eager to please.

Although Shyla has only been in care for a few weeks she has quickly acquired lovely indoor manners; toilet training and sleeping on her bed at night are already conquered. Like most young intelligent dogs without enough exercise or training Shyla could easily become destructive but with daily exercise and attention she will be a rewarding member of the family.

shyboys

Shyla enjoys playing with the two young children in the household and enjoys being a part of their bedtime routine, sleeping on their bedroom floor until they are asleep.

With continued work on her training, a careful eye on the puppy chewing phase, regular exercise and inclusion in the family life, this pup will be a rewarding addition to the right family.

tuppself

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.

tuppnjake

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.

tupplu

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.

tuppnpet (1)

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.

tuoositu9815

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.
