Twiglet is one of our recent siblings who arrived from Crete last weekend.
They found themselves at the shelter in Crete so young and with all the covid issues they remained there for too long. But as soon as we could help them we did.
Now arrived in the UK they are ready to find their families.
Twiglet is sociable, sweet but she has not had a home life upbringing so will need to learn the ropes. is fully vaccinated and microchipped, but is still too young to be neutered so adopters will be asked to commit to doing this as soon as she is old enough.
Her new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of a pup - basic training, toileting, walking on and off lead, getting used to noises and living in a home.
The decision to adopt a puppy should not be taken lightly - we have had puppies returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Twiglet will adapt and become a rounded dog. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of hard work.
Please only apply if you are 100% committed to the hard work a puppy can bring, broken sleep, toilet training, socialisation, boundaries. The first week is very important and with the right boundaries and guidance Twiglet will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT IMMEDIATELY PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Twiglet
Where does Twiglet sleep at night?
So far she has slept in my bedroom on my bed with me. She slept soundly throughout the whole night.
How is Twiglet with current dogs/animals?
She currently lives with my resident Labrador. She is intrigued by him but, overall, not particularly interested or phased by him.
She hasn’t interacted with any other animals.
Is Twiglet clean indoors?
Not yet fully. She has only just arrived in the U.K. so is still getting used to living in a house. However, as long as I take her outside frequently then she toilets outside. Twice I didn’t get there in time (my fault not hers). She will catch on quickly though.
Can Twiglet be left alone?
She’s stayed in the lounge a few times when I’ve been in the kitchen and she has been fine. She just slept.
Is Twiglet out on walks?
She has been out for a short walk but was nervous of loud noises eg cars. However, she has absolutely loved being In the garden and races around happily. She just loves playing.
How does Twiglet walk on the lead?
Twiglet is nervous on the lead but that is completely normal for a puppy who isn’t used to a lead. She will become more comfortable on a lead quite quickly, I’m sure.
Has Twiglet met other dogs?
She is currently living with my 2 year old Labrador and isn’t particularly bothered or interested in him.
How is Twiglet with humans?
She adores cuddles and snuggling with humans and would spend all day doing so if allowed to.
She is very eager to please and walks around with a smile on her face all the time!
Have you noticed that she is afraid of any particular things?
Twiglet has been mildly startled by a couple of unfamiliar sounds the first time she’s heard them e.g cupboard doors closing loudly.
She also is mildly startled if she’s approached too quickly. Other than that, she’s adapting well to life in a busy family home.
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
Twiglet is a young puppy with lots of energy and enthusiasm to learn. Although she is very very cute and adorable, her new family will have to try and see above the cuteness and ensure they invest heavily in training, as you would do with any puppy.
It’s tempting to spend all day cuddling her but she will quickly need to be shown how to be independent so that she can learn to be on her own sometimes.
She is adorable, loving and keen to please. She will want to be involved in and included in family life, so would best suit a family who have the capacity to make her a true family member.
I believe she would be the most wonderful dog for a lovely and fun family.
