Sukie spent a couple of week living with one of our amazing foster families. This is how they describe her…
…”Sukie in the first few days was on the whole well behaved and it took her a couple of days to start eating. We found a little wet food mixed with her biscuits was the best option. She wasn’t inundated with treats but Bakers bacon and cheese twists were her favourite. She would not eat any others offered!
Sukie the majority of the time showed a lot of love and affection to us and loved lying at the side of us being stroked and having a belly rub.
She is house trained and there were no accidents. She preferred several short walks and would let you know when she had had enough although she had couple long walks when both myself and my wife were present. She was
good on the lead but had a bad reaction to other dogs when near our house – excessive barking and signs of aggresion. When some distance away from the vicinity of the house, she was fine with other dogs. Whilst in the house she would bark at passing dogs also.
She slept well in her own bed at the side of our bed and did not stir until we got up.
Sukie had slight guarding issues when a friend visited. She did jump up and showed her teeth but this was when he was stood up – she calmed when he sat down plus she was given a firm one word command “down” although at this time and others when she was admonished she did tend to sulk and take herself off behind the sofa!
Whist at our house no children visited but I would advise against living with children and indeed other pets – she doesn’t like to be startled and prefers a calm approach.
Sukie would benefit from living with an owner who has some experience in training issues in respect of her
guarding and reaction to other dogs. Sukie has some insecurities which will require patience and understanding.
Sukie had a couple of short trips in the car with no problems.
In conclusion Sukie would make a lovely companion for someone who has the knowledge and patience to point her in the right direction with training”
