Star as an exbreeding girl must be rehomed with at least one other calm very patient neutered dog who is willing to play with her. Star has a lovely temperament and has not shown any signs of aggression. She loves catching up to her foster mum and the other dogs on the settee. She enjoys attention and being stroked. She’s not keen on being touched by someone standing though. She is groomed daily for her to become comfortable with gentle handling. She has been introduced to a number of adults and will allow them to stroke her (when seated) and will accept treats from them. Star has met older children without any problems so over 12’s only please.
Star loves being around the resident dogs in her foster home and has been friendly with dogs she has met outside the home. She can be overly friendly which could irritate some dogs so a forever home with a patient playful dog is a must. Star stays close to the other dogs at all times and is dependent on them for confidence and security. She will initiate play with the other dogs and she is usually first in the queue at feeding time. She will bark if dinner doesn’t come quick enough then when she has finished she’ll raid the other dogs bowls so an eye must be kept on her while eating. She is not cat tested.
Star is gaining confidence all the time. She can be easily startled by loud noises though she’s fine with the washing machine and hoover. Toilet training is a work in progress. Star has not been left alone in the day at all as yet, her foster home would only feel comfortable leaving her if the other dogs were present. At night she shares a bed with her foster sisters in the kitchen. Star has not chewed anything since a piece of cardboard in the first few days so she is not destructive. She hasn’t shown any inclination to jump or escape from the garden as she is happiest constantly following the other dogs around. Star hasn’t played with toys as yet but with encouragement this should come in time.
Star is in the early stages of lead training. She is having short introductory walks with the resident dogs to build her confidence. Star travels well in the car either on a lap or in the back with her foster sisters. Star will need a home with at least 1-2 other dogs-not older ones as she likes to get very close to them in a playful manner and this behaviour could irritate an older less active dog. She could be left for a few hours at a time with other dogs as she craves their attention and will become anxious if they’re not around. Star has a lovely bubbly character that with time, love and patience will blossom into a delightful little girl.
Star is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in RCT, South Wales.
