Tosia is 5 year old female Yorkshire Terrier Cross being fostered in Gloucestershire. This lovely girl has just come into our care – very sad case, as she has been with her family since a baby, but they are no longer able to keep her due to rules at the property they have recently brought she has now been in our care 10 days and finished her assessment period so we now start the task of finding and matching her up to the right home.
Tosia is in foster with a retired couple with 3 other dogs – she was very nervous to begin with and quiet – but slowly she has gained her confidence and doing really well. She has bonded very close with the lady and is her little shadow. She is more wary of the husband and can be quite aloof with him just depends how the mood takes her as sometimes she will sit on his lap for cuddle but mainly she just wants her Aunty Jackie. She gets on very well with the other dogs and there have been no problems although she could quite easily live as only dog as she is not that interested.
She is house trained, travels well in the car, good on the lead and really enjoys her walks. She has met the grandchildren and gets on very well with them particularly likes their granddaughter who is 5 which is probably due to her previous home being very bonded with the daughter who was 12 and used to sleep in her room. She is very affectionate once she knows you and loving. Would make a wonderful companion.
I think if she could talk she would love a home with a retired lady or someone who was around who led a quiet life – be great if their was visiting grandchildren – somebody active who enjoys walking not the hills and dales but she does enjoy her walks – She does need someone experienced who will give her the space in the beginning especially while she learns to trust you.
