Toots is a 7-year old ex-breeding Bichon Frise who is being fostered in Rhondda, South Wales. She’s a very happy little girl who loves to cuddle up to another dog for a snooze. She likes going out for a walk and meeting people and other dogs. She is a very friendly and content dog and takes everything in her stride. She loves everyone she meets and is very friendly towards them and is fine with children if they are gentle as she’s so small. She can be wary if people loom over her or children try to smother her.
Toots is fine with the dogs in her foster home but as with most ex-breeders they can be possessive over their humans. Toots is friendly on walks towards other dogs. She needs another dog in her new home to help her gain in confidence and to cuddle up to. Toots is happy to live with cats. Whoever adopts Toots will have to bear in mind that living in a home is new to her. She requires ongoing help with her housetraining and gentle guidance and socialisation in every aspect of life. She loves to run out the garden with the other dogs and has found her voice. She is a good little guard dog if someone visits.
Toots is fairly small and weighs under 5 kilos but she’s always first in the queue for food or a treat. She’s had quite a few teeth out so her tongue can poke out of her mouth especially when she’s asleep which is so cute! Toots loves having her belly gentle rubbed and will kick with her back legs if you dare to stop. Toots behaves very well on walks and travels well in the car with a seat belt restraint. She happily sits on foster mum’s lap at the vets. Toots can be left for either a morning or an afternoon but no longer – so would not be suitable for full time workers.
Due to her size, any children in the home should be older and used to handling dogs sensibly. She will need another dog of a similar size to cuddle up with. Toots loves walking but with the emphasis on little and often. She enjoys being on the sofa and on the bed so someone who will let her be part of the family is a must. We will not rehome a dog with you if your dogs are unneutered.
Toots 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 the Rhondda, South Wales.
If you are interested in adopting Toots please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.
