Zara is a 2-year old female Cross-Breed who is being fostered in the Rhondda, South Wales. She just loves to have cuddles on her terms and is trying very hard to be brave with other people. She has come a long way but still has a long way to go. Zara is happy around people if she knows you. She is still fearful of anything new and is very scared of new people. Zara hasn’t yet been tested with children. She is now able to come to be stroked. Grooming is yet to come. Zara enjoys being with other dogs and at least one resident dog is a must. Not cat tested.
Zara enjoys curling up on a selection of dog beds and sofas during the day and sleeps upstairs with her doggy family. Zara is learning how to play and loves jumping about chasing toys she throws for herself. She loves to play with the dogs in her foster home but when they respond can be unsure what to do next! House training is ongoing and needs gentle and positive reinforcement. Accidents are becoming less and, when she has one, ‘telling off” (even gently) isn’t an option as it distresses her and will set her back. Zara has been scared to eat around the other dogs but is getting less so. Any sudden movement or noise whilst eating will send Zara into a different room, gentle encouragement is vital during this time. Zara is OK to be left for up to 3 hours so long as she is with the other dogs.
Zara has been car sick previously. She is timid and nervy out walking, a harness is essential. When out walking Zara is timid of other dogs however she enjoys being part of a larger group of accepting dogs. Zara needs a calm home with at least 1 other dog. She needs lots of love and, at times, her own space. She needs regular feed times and support with house training. She needs a home which will nurture and encourage her and where her people are home most of the time. She can be quite jumpy when large or fast movements but is becoming less fearful each day. She has made great strides in the last month and with the right home life we know she will flourish.
Zara is gentle and sweet with a fun-loving side. Zara must be homed where there is at least one other dog and that dog must be confident for her to continue to grow her own confidence. Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Zara is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in the Midlands. If you are interested in adopting Zara 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.
