Meg is a 1-2 year old female Cross-Breed. Meg is great with men and women, but has tried to dominate the children in her foster home (she has been there 2 weeks). Her reaction to visitors is friendly and she wants to play with all the dogs. She is living happily with a four year old male Spaniel although sometimes shows jealous behaviour. Wants to chase but no sign of aggression. Wants to chase but not aggressive (currently home has 3 pet hens in garden).
Meg will bark eg at fireworks noise. Bit nervous of busy traffic noise but gaining in confidence. Meg is used to her harness and walks well on lead. Never pulls. Food possession has improved but still possessive and won’t give up toy/bones easily and will show guarding behaviour around food so she needs firm training.
She sleeps all night in her crate and can be left for short periods during the day (we’ve put her in her crate on these occasions). She will sit, give a paw, and lie down on command for a tasty treat. She’s been good in the car. Her recall is good ( we’ve used clicker-treat method) and she’ll always stay close when off lead. She’s not a lap dog but likes a belly rub (once she trusts you). She will happily relax on the sofa or lie at your feet.
Fostered in Edinburgh.
