*FOSTER CARER UPDATE*
Krissy is very polite. I’ve just been out and came back to licks and wagging tails from all three (dogs- she has 2 foster siblings) together as I got out of car. Once calm they got a treat. Walks with her saddle bags along path beside New England Hwy with heavy trucks in peak hour 10/10. This is a dog who would deserve only the very best of life-time family. Tonight I will try to have them sleep together undercover outside back door for first time. The “pack” is improving with every minute together.
I believe she will probably graduate as a dog that could live with or without other dogs. And as a dog ANY person could walk. It is loose lead and manners. She is the best dog to walk I have had. And I have had a dog for at least 50 of my 55 years. We are 6 days in, let alone 6 weeks. She has had two overnight wee accidents inside. But I believe that my fault for not giving her opportunities. That is for me to improve. Yesterday I had to go out for four hours. I left her inside because of grumpy Lizzie (her foster sibling). I came home, let her out and she immediately had a wee on grass. All clear inside. Today I went out for two hours and left the three together. And as I said, I came home to three happy dogs greeting me as a united “pack”.
This little lady will wiggle her way into your heart! She’s definitely a “dog’s dog” and prefers their company over humans (until she gets to know you of course) but will gently approach new people for a quick pat or a nuzzle. Slow and steady works best with this silly girl so tossing her a few treats so she can approach and make human friends at her own pace is the way to go! She gets along well with the other dogs, large and small, that she has met here at GAP HQ. Krissy also tends to be a little excitable on lead and will need some patience, especially at first until she settles into the walk. She is great in the car and lays down waiting to see where her next adventure will be. Krissy, at the stage would suit full/part time workers so long as she has a back yard to hang out in.
She is available on a foster to adopt basis from our Wyee facility, by appointment only.
As well as being behaviourally assessed, Krissy has:
- a C5 vaccination

- been microchipped
- been intestinally wormed
- been heartworm tested
