Hayley is a very sweet and cuddly lady. It took her about an hour in the house to relax and start to play and collect her cuddles. She loves her food, hasn’t missed a meal yet. She is afraid of most new noises from household items but it doesn’t take her long to get used to them. She is not afraid of kids who approach her gently but sudden movements, sounds and fast moving things (cars, kids playing with scooters etc.) are very scary for her. She is also a bit less comfortable among men, it took her a few days to be comfortable around my husband and he loves dogs. Now he can cuddle her as well. She would just rather be in a quiet place surrounded by pillow and blankets and some of her toys. She is timid with new people and afraid of barking dogs (even very little ones), she also took a couple of days to figure out that the ’strange dog’ in the windows and mirrors was her own reflection, very cute. Her leash manners are excellent, however the first time going to any new area she is very nervous about the new surrounding so will cling to your leg when walking, but she is not pulling at all. She also decided to sing to us one morning, she likes to lay in her bed in the morning and sing to herself, sounds like an opera singer. She also enjoys walking and sleeping with the tip of her tongue sticking out, absolutely adorable.

She is honestly such a gentle cuddly dog, she absolutely loves to be pat on her belly, roaches all the time and will stop you from leaving once you start to cuddle her by firmly planting her head and feet on top of you. She is not overly active and keeps herself busy with her own toys, we do feel she would be best suited for a quiet home with no small children or other dogs, not a busy household, noise or lots of visiting people. In my opinion the perfect dog for those who want a cuddly companion who is also independent, she will gladly go sleep in another room if she doesn’t like the sound of the tv, she rarely cries when we leave, she doesn’t beg for food, and most enjoys it if you lay next to her and give her lots and lots of cuddles. She would be excellent for an active adult couple, which are not working full time (not young couples) who just want a dog that they can cuddle for hours on end with but isn’t too reliant on them and doesn’t need too much exercise. If it was up to us, we would keep her to ourselves, she is perfect.

Hayley is available on a foster to adopt basis.
