Dolly is a sweet 7 year old female silver Shih tsu. Dolly was handed to CAS when her owner was taken into hospital and subsequently had to move to a care home and so was unable to look after Dolly. Unfortunately she was rather neglected in those last few months, having been left in her owner’s home and fed by various friends and acquaintances. When Dolly arrived at her new foster home she had to be shaved and was understandably upset and wary of strangers and not used to going out for walks. She has since been neutered and vaccinated and has really come into her own. Dolly has really attached herself to her current fosterer and is a very sweet dog who loves her walks snd lots of cuddles. She likes nothing more than sitting next to her foster mum. She would really like a quiet home of her own as a single dog without children. She gets on fine with cats and would suit someone who is retired or works part-time and who understands Dolly’s previous life and experiences and appreciates that it will take time for her to settle into her forever home. Though not 100% sure of her past it is thought Dolly was an ex-breeding bitch and had not been socialised and is therefore understandably wary of new dogs that she meets. She is also wary of new people but once she has got to know them she is fine. Since being at her foster home she has got used to her foster ‘brother and sister’ and is getting better when out for walks but this socialisation will need to continue once she goes to her new home.
