Can I be left alone?

No
Cassie is not happy with being left on her own at the moment so will need new owners around for all of the time initially. With careful, gradual training we hope she will be able to learn to feel more comfortable with this.
She has been housetrained in her foster home.

Additional information

Cassie can be reactive towards some dogs because she is scared of them and is undergoing training to help with this. She does like to walk with calm dogs but is unsure how to interact with them, requiring slow, gentle socialising. Due to her chase drive she would not be suitable to live with smaller pets.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Cassie can be worried at first but could potentially share her home with children over 7 years who take their time to become friends with her. She is ideally looking for a quieter home as she would find one with lots of visitors a bit unsettling.

What type of environment would suit me?

Cassie is unable to be let off lead on walks so would suit a home with access to a fully enclosed garden with 6ft fencing.

About Cassie

Cassie is a sweet, gentle girl with a lovely waggy tail. She can be worried of new people but once she feels comfortable she's really relaxed and chilled out. She is very affectionate when she knows you, loves to snooze and gets the occasional burst of the zoomies!

As she is growing in confidence we are finding that she is enjoying opportunities to explore more and more. It will be really rewarding to watch her continue to learn the world is not so scary.

Things to note

In her foster home, she has developed some interest in tennis balls and will play with them for short bursts of time.
