Berta – 7 month old female Podenco Cross

Berta is a 7 month old female Podenco Cross. She has come from Qatar. She may have a bit more growing to do. She is neutered, vaccinated microchipped, deflead and wormed. She has been with us since beginning of December. She was very nervous but had come on in leaps and bounds.

She is still a little nervous of certain things. Not a fan of traffic and doesn’t like night time reflections. She loves other dogs and people and is friendly to all. Her house training is going well with the odd accident during the night but more nights than not she’s clean and always goes on her puppy pad. She likes walks and is learning her harness but needs the confidence of another dog/s whilst out. She loves toy play and her chew.

She is happy playing on her own for a while but likes interaction. She’s a very very sweet, happy little girl. She is currently living with a 12 year old Lurcher and an 11 year Greyhound.

I do feel, however, that she needs to be homed with a younger very playful dog as she is very full on and wouldn’t suit a permanent home with an older dog. She knows “paw”, picked it up in a day and we’re working on “sit & stay”. Goes into her crate at bedtime with gate left open and sleeps for 8 hours easily!

She can be left for 2/3 hours during day as long as she has had fun/walk or has company with another dog. Food isn’t a huge feature in her life but training treats have worked well! I feel she would like to be homed with another dog. Berta is in foster in Sussex.
