Dee is two and a half years old, she is neutered and up to date with her vaccinations.
She has now been in foster care for 3 months living with the very handsome Diego (a young, unneutered male Visla).
Under the guidance of her calm, experienced foster carer, she is doing really well.
She is a very energetic dog who can comfortably walk 15 miles at a time! At the moment, she is being kept on a lead as she is in foster care, so once she can get off lead, she will benefit from some free running. But she is most definitely a Dalmatian that requires a lot of walking and a lot of regular company.
She is now becoming more relaxed in the house, especially after a long walk.
She and Diego are great friends and she is generally very good when meeting other dogs.
She and Diego can be fed treats around each other without any issue, and she has shown no food aggression towards her foster carer.
She is still very food motivated and will counter surf when she gets the chance. Her foster carer has been allowing her to be in the kitchen when food is being prepared and allowing her to be near when the family are eating. This is slowly helping to reduce her fascination with food. Further work in this area will be required.
She is also still keen to scavenge when out walking. As she is lead walked at the moment, this is not a major issue as anything that she picks up can be successfully removed from her mouth. However, once she is off lead, this could be problematic. Further training in the "leave" command should continue to help, but it is not clear if she will ever stop this behaviour.
Dee is now ready for her forever home.
She is in need of a calm, experienced owner who will continue to invest time in her development.
Her new owner(s) will preferably be at home quite a lot of the time ie not working full time.
She can live with another Male dog.
We would prefer a home without children under 12 as Dee needs someone with time to commit to her.
She is a strong willed young lady and will need a calm but assertive owner.
If you think that you have the time, a calm nature and lots of dog experience to invest in Dee, then please give us a call on 07757 723207 in the first instance.
