Very cautious of strangers, will bark, lunge and snap if approached.

Barks at other dogs initially. Could possibly live with a calm dog if personalities match. No cats. Seems to be house trained, fine left short periods though prefers lots of company as bonds closely and needs lots of reassurance. Not sure about car travel. Generally worried about lots of things, needs quiet home in quieter area with own secure garden. Walks in quieter areas. Has deformed front legs though still very active. Potential adopters will need to live close enough to centre to make several frequent visits over a period of time to allow her to get to know them.
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
