02-07-12 Muffles is a 4 year old ex breeding Westie. She is quite timid and is a beginner on the lead and will need house training. Muffles will need a very patient, calm owner to bring this little girl to her full potential and another dog in the home who can help teach her about life in a home and help her gain confidence.
PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home ex-breeding dogs 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.
What a delight it has been having this little girl share our home. Muffles has been dry and clean from the start. She sleeps all night, enjoys her walks and has learnt how to play. she is wonderful with the little Yorkie I am also fostering and they get up to all sorts of fun together. Muffles comes when called and has begun to enjoy life, she is still not happy with lots of noise and comes for reassurance so a quiet home would suit her best. She travels well in the car can be left for short periods and all in all is a wonderful little dog.
