Giving Crackerz the training and care she needed
Although Crackerz didn’t have major behavioural issues, she needed help with recall training before rehoming. Our team worked patiently with her and she made great progress. According to Tiffany: “Towards the end, she was smashing it with her recall training!” As Crackerz became more confident, she showed us she was a typical lively Patterdale at heart.
The kennel environment proved a bit too much for her nervous state. So when one of our Woodgreen foster carers showed interest, we were delighted. Tiffany said: “Spending time with a fosterer helped Crackerz massively build her confidence.”
Meeting her potential new humans on The Dog House
The benefits of fostering, along with Tiffany’s dedicated care, helped prepare little Crackerz for the adoption process. And she didn’t have long to wait. During the filming of The Dog House Crackerz soon met Darran and his daughter Jazz, who had recently suffered the loss of his wife.
She ticked all Darran’s boxes for a companion to fill his home with joy again – the start of a brighter future for them both. After recently catching up, we’re thrilled they’re loving life together.
Today Crackerz, now called Kiko, enjoys lazy days curled up with Darran, long walks, playdates with friends and lots of belly rubs. We couldn’t be happier to see this once-abandoned pup thriving in a home overflowing with love!
