Eliza has been homed. 21/2/15.
She is a short and dainty looking black, spayed bitch who was born in September 2010.
Eliza generally walks very well on the lead, but she is acrobatic when her chase instinct is triggered by for example a passing deer! We tend to walk her on a Canny Collar as this makes managing her quite straight forward when she is excitable.
Eliza travels very well in a car and she is keen to get into a car for her outings.
She has met other breeds of dog and at this point she needs significantly more socialisation with small to medium sized breeds although she is making progress. As an only pet with daily exposure to assorted breeds of dog we’d expect her to progress much more quickly on the social front.
Eliza adores playing with toys and she has learned to fetch a ball. Squeaky toys are a favourite, but best not given to her if you have children around as she’s not yet mastered the good manners of sharing.
Eliza has shown us she can climb stairs with confidence, she is very fast going up and coming back down! She is also fine walking on laminated and tiled floors.
We feel that Eliza is best suited to an adult home or one with teenage children around because she tend to be rather scared of noisy and lively people. She would be ideal as an only pet, but she could share with a “laid back” male dog of large breed.
In the home environment she has proved to be naturally clean, she’s quiet and able to be left without problems for reasonable periods.
Eliza is a cheeky little girl who does like to collect anything that may be laying around and run off with it to her bed! On the plus side she doesn’t chew, she just collects. Perhaps she’s just house proud and doesn’t like to see things left laying around?
Eliza adores going out for walks, the whole world is absolutely fascinating to her. She is always alert and busy looking around. She walks out with her greyhound foster brothers and being tiny she often can’t see over their backs. To overcome this she simply bobs up and down so she can see! Her favourite “brother” is a huge 41kg dog and he makes her mere 27kg frame look positively tiny! If they share a bed it really is a case of little and large.
No cats or small fluffies please.
