Terry arrived 9th August with his sister Ella. These two had a very sad story, Terry was Ella’s little protector, he always took care of her in the shelter, they were never far apart form each other. Terry wanted to come and see us but was worried to leave Ella.
They arrived together into foster and went to the same foster home. We needed to see how they were away from shelter life and to determine if they needed to be in the same home or separated in order for them to become independent of each other.
After a week of assessment we decided that Terry actually was very independent of Ella and was happy to be apart. Ella used him as a comfort blanket and this was hindering her bonding with other dogs and humans.
They were split and have blossomed separately after a short period of adjustment.
Terry is a very funny chap, his character is coming out each day, cheeky, happy, affectionate and just wants his walks and cuddles and home comforts.
Terry is neutered, fully vaccinated and has a pet passport.
With the right guidance he will all easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required.
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT IMMEDIATELY AS THE PROCESS CAN BE SPEEDY IF A MATCH.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dogs name: Terry
Where does Terry sleep at night?
Terry sleeps in his bed which is located next to my bed. He sleeps well throughout the night. He loves jumping onto the bed for cuddles in the morning.
How is Terry with current pets?
Terry first lived with multiple other dogs including Ella and got on well with them all. Now In his current foster home he’s living with a calm dog who is he occasionally sniffs and follows. Terry has excellent manners with other dogs including patch.
He’s also living with a cat who is quite confident and Terry seems a little scared of him and has shown no interest in chasing him.
Is the Terry clean indoors?
Yes, very clean good boy.
Is Terry out on walks and how does he walk on lead?
Terry loves his walks, he sees the lead and gets excited. He walks nicely on lead and is generally in-front or next to me.
Has Terry met other dogs?
Yes Terry is out walking with lots of different types of dogs. He will generally do an initial sniff and then calmly walks with them.
When walking past other dogs he can sometime be scared especially if they bark at him or are over excited dogs, he will just pull to move out the way. He re settles quickly after.
How is Terry with humans?
Terry is a funny boy, when he first came to me he was jumpy and nervous of being approached. However when he’s out or on my bed he loves nothing more then people coming over and giving him a good tickle.
Over the time he’s been in the uk his confidence is growing. He’ll now come for a fuss if we are sat in the garden or in the house. He’s still a little unsure being approached but happily follows you in the house and garden.
Has Terry been left alone?
Terry has been left for 2hours and seemed fine, he paced a little bit but soon settled.
Have you noticed Terry is afraid of any particular things?
Terry is a lovely boy how’s slowly adjusting to UK life. There are a few things that can startled him this includes people and especially children on a walk, he will move himself out the way until they have passed.
Terry is also unsure of big lorries but seems ok walking next to roads which mainly have cars or van on. However bikes or more the people on bikes can make him feel worried.
Terry is getting better with walking past dogs but it’s important his new family take him out on lots of adventures to help him get more comfortable.
The perfect family for Terry
Terry's family needs to be aware that at first he won’t feel comfortable being approached or snuggle up straight away, but with time and patience he will be a super snuggly boy who will spend all day on the sofa if he was allowed to.
He travels well in the car and loves to go on adventures but needs help building his confidence around people and dogs.
His new family will need to be comfortable handling a nervous dog who may pull when he feels scared.
