Conchita – 3 year old female Cross-Breed

Conchita is a mixed breed girl approximately 3 years old. Conchita was abandoned at the shelter and when she first arrived, would have nothing to do with people. She was not aggressive but would not make eye contact or acknowledge you, she was just more used to other dogs, than to people.

GREAT NEWS! This Dog Has Now Been Rehomed

Conchita has come out of herself in the last 3 months. She got a sore ear that had to be treated daily and she never complained even if it hurt. She accepts lots of cuddles and even gives kisses now. She always runs up to us to say hello where in the past she would not even acknowledge our existence. She’s been going out for walks and loves them. She pulls a bit but will soon learn to accept that she has to walk properly. She really is a delightful dog and despite mistrust of humans until recently, we have never seen an angry snarl or a growl.

Conchita is looking for a home with someone who has the time and patience to continue her socialisation. We would not be happy to home with small children but she could possibly be rehomed with older children who can understand and respect Conchitas needs.
