Dotty is a 5 year old possible Poodle cross Terrier type girly being fostered in Gloucestershire. Lovely little Dolly has found herself looking for a home through no fault of her own. She was initially rehomed 4 years ago to a local family with teenagers and two Retrievers where she has lived happily. Unfortunately due to change in circumstances, all 3 dogs are now having to be rehomed, Dolly will remain with her family until the right home is found.
Dolly started her life off on the streets of Spain as a stray – she then came to the UK where she was homed. In her home she is described as a delightful friendly little girl, she is playful and lives with two older Golden Retrievers who she often invites to play but who sadly feel too grown up to engage.
Out and about meeting other dogs she can initially be a little defensive when approached by other dogs especially when she is on the lead but its only ever verbally she has never shown any aggression. I know this is true as I have walked her and often meet her with my dogs in the woods. She loves to jump on your lap and have cuddles and is not particularly noisy unless she hears a car on the drive.
She is very friendly towards people she meets and charms everyone with her friendly little nature. Everybody who knows Dotty loves her. She is quite a sensitive little girl and if there is shouting of any kind or an unkind tone she will take herself away somewhere. She can sometimes get a little spooked, maybe suddenly loud noise etc, thunder, fireworks and she will go very quiet and go to another room to get away from it.
Recall is fine I have walked her myself, she does love the undergrowth and sometimes there is a bit of a delay – she wears a bell so they know where she is. She walks on the lead fine, travels fine and sleeps on the sofa in the lounge at night she never took to a dog bed so if you are precious about dogs on the sofa please do not apply as it’s not fair after all this time for Dotty not be allowed up.
So basically a very sweet dog, she loves children but has only lived with teenagers so would not put her with younger, could live with other dogs but would prefer smaller her size or as an only dog, she is used to being left but would be nice for her to have someone around.
A special little dog who needs a very special home – Dotty is spayed, vaccinated, chipped – if you feel you be the right home for her please can you email us for our questionnaire.
