06-12-2016 Tammy is a 5 year old female Bichon Frise who has been given to us by her breeder to find a forever home. She is a very nervous, timid little girl.  She will need a calm and experienced home. She gets on well with all dogs and needs a canine companion in her new home to help her get used to the sights and sounds of everyday life and give her some much needed confidence. She will have never lived in a home before and will need help with housetraining and this will be easier if she can follow the example of a resident dog. At the moment Tammy is too scared to walk on a lead but as she starts to settle we will gently introduce this to her.  She will thrive in a quiet home with a patient owner who would like to give her lots of love and patience to help her become a happy family pet. If you can offer Tammy the home that she really deserves then please apply as soon as possible and help her to take the next step into a better life.

Tammy is a very special girl who will need time, and patience to settle her. She needs someone who is going to take their time and reassure her that everything is going to be ok. Today I managed to get a harness on her and take her to the sandschool and long line her.  This was a big leap for Tammy and a new expereince and I would like to think she enjoyed and sniffed every part of the sand school! You will need experience with scared ex-breeders to take on this sensitive girl.

Tammy has been with me for just a week, she is very scared and any sudden movement will send her running. She needs an adult only home and if you slowly approach her she will sniff you and let you touch her. The first evening she made herself at home and jumped straight onto the settee. She gets on well with all the dogs and plays in the garden with them. I haven't attempted to take her on a lead yet as she is still very scared but once she gets confident and trusts me we will start. She takes no notice of the my cats, she eats well, she is a lovely girl .

Tammy is coming on slowly she will come and sit next to me on the sofa and let me tickle her under the chin. She will lick my hand a couple of times very warily and then move away very quickly. She loves the other dogs and plays with them in the garden and often sits and licks their ears and face. Her tail has started to wag now when she sees me. She will need a someone who has some experience of scared dogs I am positive she will be a very loving dog once she knows that no one will harm her anymore. She plays with toys now and loves to chew on an antler. Please don't look her by she would love someone to love her and eventually have a cuddle.

Tammy had come on so much since I first fostered her. She lets me stroke her under and her chin and head and although at first shewould  nip with fear this has now almost completely stopped.
She is such a lovely Bichon she comes up to you and waits for a stroke  under the chin and nudges you with her mouth. She plays with all my other dogs, she sleeps all night and is clean in the house.
Tammy is still quite scared of sudden movements and will run away from you. Lead training I will start soon, want her to trust me a bit more first. She needs a groom so will be having a groom next week.

27-07-17 UPDATE

Over the last couple of  weeks Tammy has taken toys off me and once a treat last week. I plucked up the courage to take her for a groom last week and well what can I say she completely had me in tears, I was able to give her a cuddle and a kiss at last she is starting to trust me, instead of nipping me she was mouthing me like a puppy. She still has a long way to go as not lead trained yet she has broken my heart and when she finds her forever home she will take some of me with her. She will need time and patience as she has some way to go but she will make someone a very happy owner one day, her tail is wagging more and more each day. Please give her a chance.

Tammy is such a sweet girl she is good with other dogs and cats. She eats well and sleeps all night she is just a bit scared still needs a lots of love and patience that's all she needs. We took her to a secure field last week she loved the run she was smiling away, in fact she just didn't want to go home! Next time we are going to take a long lead to try her on. Please give this gorgeous girl a chance.< 30-10-17 UPDATE
Tammy has come on so much the last couple of weeks she has allowed me to groom her and let my nephew of 12 to pick her up. She is still abit scared and will run when you go to pick her up but if someone can give her time and patience she will grow into a lovely lapdog cause she does love a cuddle when you get her  on your lap. Lead training is taking its time she has come out of a harness in the garden but I definitely think she will get there. We take her to a secure field at the weekends on a long lead she never wants to leave as she runs to run in the 2 acres.

This gorgeous girl has been waiting  for a year to find her forever home. She is a darling house trained, plays with other dogs and now jumps up on the sofa to sit near you and let you stroke her once but then is off again. She loves treats and food. She hates her harness being put on but she loves to run in the secure field which we have access to and her video shows her running and very happy.  I will continue to work on her on a harness and will updates again shortly.  Tammy is starting to trust humans but she has been the most scared  dog I have had to foster so she needs a special home with experienced owners. She will get there with some more work she just needs her forever home to come and find her.

Tammy has continued to grow a little in confidence on a daily basis and is a very inquisitive girl. She will run if new people come in the house to visit but will look from a distance to see who it is. Tammy, unfortunately, has hurt one of her back legs and is limping.  She is on pain killers and resting as much as I can make her and will see how she goes. She will take her medicine quite well and the tablets if I leave them on the floor for her.
She loves my dogs and plays well with them, she is clean and loves to run in the garden and around the secure field on a long lead. She will wear a harness but is not on a lead yet. The home she needs is someone who is home most of the time to give her the love and patience and time that she needs. Also I feel someone who is used to frightened ex breeder dogs, older teenage dog savvy children. She will also need another small resident/s dog to continue to learn from.

30-04-18 UPDATE
Tammy had a little bath yesterday she is ok being washed but not too keen on the dryer. She is being crate rested to see how her leg progresses with complete rest.

08-05-18 UPDATE
Tammy is into her second week of crate rest and limping is still there but improving. She is hating not going to the secured  field I take the dogs to she barks til I come home she stays with my son, she loves to run around in the field and loves playing with the rest of the dogs. She is taking her tablets very well for me and now sits and waits in the conservatory for them after her breakfast.

16-05-18 UPDATE
Tammy is going to have a bath and a groom at the weekend, pictures to follow. She has been crated rested for two weeks now she still has a limp but has improved.  I'm taking it slowly with her not letting her jump or run at the moment and see how it goes.

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.
