PROFILE

Hope is a sweet dog who actively seeks out affection from adults. She is currently fairly relaxed in her kennel and does not shred her blankets and/or toys, and generally keeps her kennel nice and clean. Hope has previously lived with a dog; however as she displays fearful and aggressive behaviours towards them, it would not be suitable to rehome her with another dog in the future. Hope can pull strongly on the lead, and does need to learn some general manners as she will jump up on people. Hope knows how to sit perfectly, can wait patiently for short periods of time, and does respond to her own name (although this will need further training to solidify this in a new home). She does show some interest in wanting to learn further commands and is very treat-orientated. Hope takes food very gently and does not snap. Hope cannot be rehomed with children as she becomes stressed and can show fearful/aggressive behaviours towards them as a result, and can fixate on them when out on walks. This is something new owners would need to be aware of and manage in the future. She has never lived with cats, and therefore we would advise she is not to be rehomed with them. Hope has entropion and has had surgery on this. She has been on eye drops and it takes two people to apply these to her, as she is very wriggly to restrain and will try to get away as soon as she can. When Hope spends time in reception she settles well and isn’t overly obsessed with seeking attention.

Hope is looking for an adult only home with no other pets, where she can continue her training. She is a lovely girl who will make a fantastic addition to the right home.
