Laurie is a two to three year old Spaniel cross Collie. Laurie is fostered Gt Yarmouth (FR001). I guess if she had been born into a better world she would have been called a Sprollie and been highly sought after would have been bought at a high price by a family who adored her but sadly the world Laurie was born into was light-years away from this. Laurie was born in Romania, never handled kindly and ended up in a harsh public shelter where all she was taught was to fear humans.
Laurie has now been with me for several months and she is now at a stage where, although not totally fixed, she needs to move on to an environment where she can get more one to one attention. On arrival she hid under a chest of drawers for weeks. She is now enjoying her walks and even running free with a trailing lead. She still does not seek out human attention and is still terribly hand shy but she will allow me to stroke her if I insist and is starting to relax into it more. There are too many dogs here for her to progress further and she needs to be in a less hectic environment. It is essential that she has another confident dog or two in the household and would be fine with cats.
This beautiful little girl is still a work in progress. She needs love, patience and an understanding that it could be months before she comes forward and actually asks for a cuddle. Heaven knows what traumas she has been through in her life thus far but from now on it must be love and kindness only!
