Rehoming – Profile


Nancy was originally part of an ongoing investigation but she has recently been signed over into our care.

Behaviour observations on site:

Nancy is a friendly, excitable little girl who is looking for a patient and committed owner. Nancy is currently quite needy and seeks attention/comfort frequently from her handlers. She can become very vocal when doing so, so needs gentle guidance on how to behave more independently. Her new owners will have to work on her feeling safe and secure in order to then work on her vocalisation.

Nancy is a tri-pod! Unfortunately, one of her back legs had to be removed due to an existing injury that was not treated. This has not slowed her down at all and she has found a new lease for life since her surgery.

Nancy is still getting used to walking on a lead, but has come very far since being with us. She will need a gradual introduction to new walking areas, as she can become overstimulated (becomes vocal) easily by external stimuli, particularly in busy environments.

Nancy may need help adjusting to living in a home environment in terms of toilet training and being left alone as she is currently not used to this.

Nancy is currently quite vocal towards unknown dogs and finds it difficult to settle around them. She was most likely not socialised correctly as a puppy so as a result barks at them as she is unsure on what else to do. She will need lots of guidance around how to be calm when near them.

Nancy will need frequent grooming to maintain her curly coat. She is currently quite wriggly when being groomed, so she will need weekly positive grooming sessions to make her feel more comfortable when being groomed.

Nancy is a real lap dog and loves to be cuddled up with you on the sofa. She will make a wonderful little companion for an understanding owner.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the dog. 

Medical history:

Nancy is not currently on any medication, but new owners should be aware that she could suffer from arthritis in her back leg (but doesn’t at the moment) She would benefit from gentle exercise and potentially hydrotherapy and physio in the future. She is currently on a joint supplement to help prevent this. Nancy is spayed, flea, wormed and vaccinated.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
