Description

 

Millie is living with one of our wonderful foster carers and this is what she has to say about her.... 

 

"Millie walks perfectly on the lead; she does not pull. She waits when you come to a road. She isn’t nervous around cars etc. She wears a harness which she gets very giddy about when you put it on her!

 

When she meets other dogs whilst on-lead, she has a little cry, but a good cry. Like she wants to go and play with them! She is wary at first, but no reactive behaviour towards other dogs. She has been let off the lead, with another dog and she was brilliant. She returned when she was called and stayed by my side. Millie is very playful for her age! She is very friendly and wants to interact with other dogs.

 

Millie is interested in other people; she tries to greet them and sniff them at the same time. She doesn’t show any anxiety around others.

 

Millie shows interest in water and doesn’t seem scared but has not yet swam in water whilst with me. She doesn't attempt to chase anything - birds, rabbits, cats (Millie has not been officially cat tested), livestock etc - she isn’t phased by these things; she is very placid around them. Nor is she concerned about traffic, bicycles, runners, or pushchairs.

 

Millie sleeps downstairs in her bed and, sometimes she likes to sleep upstairs with us. Millie is house trained and has been fine whilst left home alone.  Millie hasn’t chewed or destroyed anything.

 

Millie shows no interest in any toys. I was told she is terrified of squeaky toys, so I have not tried these around her yet. I am currently trying to get her to play with balls. Millie LOVES a good brush as she is part collie and very furry. She isn’t so keen on bath time though and will run away.

 

During the recent thunder storms, Millie was unfortunately at home on her own at the time - she was scared and had a little piddle.  Millie has not shown any signs of guarding around food but she has been left in her own space when eating. Millie loves a bowl of milk, every morning. She knows you will be giving her when she sees the milk out of the fridge. She loves to walk around a garden, having a good sniff in her own

 

Millie will sit and give paw, waiting for her treat. Millie is a cheeky girl and tries her luck when you’re eating your food, but she does listen when you tell her no.

 

Millie is a very stubborn, yet lovely, placid lady. She is very energetic for her age. She is also calm; she doesn’t act hyper or jumping everywhere unless she knows she is going for a walk! Millie loves to walk and have belly rubs. Millie sleeps with the tip of her tongue hanging out, she tucks her head into her paws also, which is SO cute, which you will no doubt see as she loves a good snooze!

 

I have a 5-year-old son, they spend as much time together as I spend with her. Which is a lot. Millie is perfect around children and has a lot of patience from what I have seen so far. Millie doesn’t show interest in his toys either.

 

Millie is well behaved in the car. She did a cry once in a 45/50-minute travel. She laid down most of the way and showed no signs of distress. I was told Millie urinates whilst at the vets. But she was fine, she allowed the vet to assess her and showed no signs of distress whilst doing so. "
