Gracie is a 6 year old female Cross-Breed. She has been neutered and is fully vaccinated. Her breeding is unknown but her coat is short but dense and her looks are that of a Collie cross German Shepherd Dog. Gracie came over from Romania 5 months ago, when she arrived she was a scared and nervous dog. It is very rewarding to see how far she has come but she needs to be settled in her forever home, where she can continue to progress.
She is a sweet dog who loves a fuss and will paw for more if you stop but she is not as keen on being groomed although tolerates it resignedly. She loves to cuddle up with you on the sofa and is partial to an afternoon snooze! She is house trained and mostly very quiet but does get animated at feeding times as she does like her grub. She is low maintenance, she doesn’t ask for much just to be fed and somewhere comfy to sleep. She is very bright and quickly learned the routine so as soon as the other dogs go for a walk she waits for her treat. She likes her toys and can often be found on the sofa with quite a collection.
Gracie is probably never going to go on long walks, the best we can hope for is a plod round the block. Therefore, she needs an easily accessible garden to sniff and potter round in. She has readily accepted wearing a harness but to date has not actually left the house to go for a walk. She is happy to take herself off into the garden to do her business but likes to get back in quickly after. She has been in the car a couple of times since she arrived but is very nervous travelling (bad memories).
Gracie has mixed with a wide range of dogs – big and small, young and old, quiet and boisterous and is not phased by any of them. She will stand up for herself if hassled but is non aggressive. Gracie could be the only dog and would suit someone home most of the day who wants a companion. She can be left home alone within reason.
Gracie will need love, patience and a continued understanding but will reward you with her devotion and trust. We do not expect that this girl will be easy to rehome but are looking for that special person (people) to help her with the rest of her journey.
Gracie is being fostered in Bristol. An adoption fee does apply.
