Caitlyn is around 6 month old now and is a German Shepherd cross Lurcher type puppy. She is a typical puppy and will need training in all areas. Her new owners will have to be prepared to put in the work with her so she grows into a well socialised (large breed) adult. Caitlyn loves her humans and would prefer that they are around for most of the day so that they can train and socialise her.
Children need to be older and aware of puppy nipping and know how to correct this behaviour so Caitlyn learns it is unacceptable. She will not be rehomed with under 10’s. As a playful pup, she would annoy an older dog with her constant demands for play but has been fine in her foster home racing around with the resident spaniels. Not tested around cats, but she is young enough to learn with consistent training.
Caitlyn has no real issues on the home. She will cry if left in a crate but is happy to go into a dog pen with the resident canines. She does need watching as she is a chewy puppy and will have a go at furniture if she thinks you don’t notice. House training is a work in progress. Caitlyn has not yet had her full course of vaccinations so has not been out and about yet. She will need lead training and her socialisation will be ongoing.
Caitlyn is looking for an active home where her people are around for most of the day. She needs time and patience invested in her with training and socialisation and a family who are prepared for the fact that she will grow into a big, strong girl as an adult. Puppy training classes are recommended. Another dog of similar energy levels would do her the world of good too as she can burn off some of that puppy energy.
Caitlyn will be fully vaccinated, microchipped and up to date with her flea and worming treatment before going to her new home. She is too young to be spayed so this will be the responsibility of the adopter when she is six months old. Follow up checks will be done. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet Caitlyn in her foster home in RCT, South Wales.
If you are interested in adopting Caitlyn 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.
