Carrie is a 7 year old female Bichon Frise. Carrie is quite affectionate for an exbreeding girl. She enjoys watching on the sofa next to you and gently paws you if she wants to be fussed. She’s a happy little girl who wags her tail and runs to greet you and give you kisses. She’s a little hesitant when being picked up but has recently had surgery (spay & hernia removal) so may still be a little tender.
She hasn’t met any children yet, but older sensible ones are best. Carrie is great with all dogs and bitches she has met, large or small. She is currently in foster with a Shih Tzu and a Cavachon and enjoys meeting others on walks every day. She will only be rehomed where there is another dog for her to make friends. It is not known how Carrie would react to a cat, but most exbreeding dogs are fine with dog savvy cats.
Carrie has been fine being left with the 2 resident dogs but she hasn’t been left on her own. Carrie is only just starting to play with toys but she hasn’t shown any dominance over them or over food. She is used to household noises such as the hoover and the television and she is house trained. She isn’t destructive at all and doesn’t try to escape from the garden, she likes being at home. Carrie loves her food and despite not having many teeth can manage to eat both wet and dry food. Carrie loves her walks with the other dogs and is very good on the lead with no pulling. She hasn’t yet been let off lead. Carrie is sitting in a booster seat in the car and is fine. She was a good girl in the vets and was calm as he examined her.
Carrie needs a home where confidence building will continue with at least one other dog as she is still learning to relax in a home environment. She loves company from humans and dogs so someone who is around for most of the day to give her lots of attention would be best. She so deserves a home of her own where she can relax and settle and know that she is there forever. Carrie just wants to be loved.
Carrie is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet Carrie in her foster home in Swansea, South Wales.
