How much training will I need?

Can I be left alone?

Suzy has been able to be left home on her own in previous homes. She has the potential to be okay with being left home alone in the future but will need lots of time to settle into her new home first.
In her foster home, her fosterers say - Suzy's home alone is improving with lots of training, and she can now be left for 1.5-2hrs, which we are still building up, though it had taken a while to get to this point. She prefers to be left in the morning or evening- in her typical day she snoozes a lot but wakes up early afternoon and likes a play or a cuddle so would love someone to be at home during this time.

Do I have any medical conditions?

Additional information

Suzy cannot live with any other animals. She needs to live in a quieter area where she will not meet dogs on her walks as she finds this difficult and can be reactive to them.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Suzy would be best in a home with more than one person as she bonded very closely with her most recent owner but struggled when she was apart from her. Suzy can live with children aged seven years and over.

What type of environment would suit me?

Suzy is looking to live in a quiet area where she is able to keep her distance from other dogs. It is not appropriate for her to go off lead in public, so a private garden is a must for her to have a run around in.

About Suzy

Suzy is a wonderful older lady that is looking for a loving family to spend her retirement years with. Suzy loves people and really likes to be around them. She is friendly with anyone she meets and is very gentle.

She does like the sound of her own voice and may bark when she wants something or at people because she wants them to say hi to her. She may take a little while to settle in to a new environment, so new owners should be patient and give her time to adapt and relax fully.

Here is what her fosterers have to say about her, "Suzy's an absolute star - she's such a funny little thing and makes us laugh every day with the funny noises she makes. Once she got to know us, she soon started to relax and gain confidence, and is a great little companion. She's a very polite and easy house guest, and loves to chill out and snooze - although she also likes chasing her tennis balls occasionally, and can be quite clever learning new games if there's food involved! She travels well and is very gentle and friendly with everyone she meets. Her favourite thing is to snuggle up to you on the sofa for a cuddle, and roll around on her back in the sun. She's a very loving and affectionate little lady, and really deserves a special forever home of her own."
