| Status: AvailableName: Calypso|
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie)
Age: 5 Years
|Location: Calne Wiltshire|
08-01-2015 Calypso is a 5 year old ex-stud Yorkie who is slightly nervous at present but shows signs that his confidence will soon come. Calypso does not walk on the lead but will follow the others so will need another confident dog in the home to help him learn all the skills he needs including house training. Calypso may need on going medication for a dry eye condition but we will be monitoring this.
PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
.....Calypso came to us with his kennel mate Kryssa a week ago and although he is still a little scared of his new surroundings, he is bravely trying to enjoy all his new experiences and has already improved in confidence.
.....Calypso is a quiet little chap that loves his warm comfy bed, but also loves a cuddle on the sofa and any attention he can get. Heloves a good sniff and run around the garden, but needs a little encouragement to go out, usually a carry over the step will do. He is mostly clean and dry day and night, but is still learning not to will mark any new territory.
.....Calypso is good with cats and just has a sniff and then walks away. Walking on the lead in work in progress to be worked on over a long period. He is such a dear sweet little boy who he deserves a warm comfy forever home.
.....Calypso has been with us for four weeks now and is coming along nicely and fully enjoying living as part of our family. Although still a little scared, he more often than not forgets to be scared and runs up to me for attention and cuddles. This little chap actually smiles!
.....Calypso now walks on the lead and really enjoys going out for daily walks. He travels well in the car and loves looking out of the window. Recall is good in the garden as he now recognises his name, but we haven't let him off of the lead, so that's something his adopters would need to be sure of before testing that. House training is almost there, with just the occasional night time accident. He is such a dear happy soul and would make someone a loyal and loving lifelong companion.
Calypso has written himself a short update with some pics!
.....Here I am enjoying my day out to Avebury on Easter Monday. It was a family egg hunt, so it was very busy, but I copped very well with all the noises. My foster mummy gave me my first ever Easter egg, a special dog one without chocolate. I wanted to eat it all up at once, but foster mummy said only a little bit each day. So the pictures are of me enjoying the day, just had a bit of egg and the after effects of a busy day with me laying on the sofa!
.....My foster mummy says that I am such a good little boy and cant believe that someone hasn't snapped me up yet. She is a little concerned that I have been in foster care for two months now and that I might think I have found my forever home, so it would be really nice if someone could please give me a forever home soon.
