16-02-2018 Peanut is a 4 year old ex-breeding Maltese x Bichon Frise.  She is a tiny little girl who is very scared and didn't want to be picked up.  However once in our arms she calmed down with gentle works and soft strokes. Once her coat grows back and she is taken regularly to a groomer by her new owner will see just how beautiful this little ladyis.  She will need a home with at least one other dog to help her confidence with people and who she can watch a copy about house training and lead walking.  Peanut has a passport.

Peanut is a lovely girl - she is very small and scared but will let you stroke her after a while and when she is comfortable around you.
She enjoys her food and treats and really gets on well with her kennel friends. Peanut is more confident when she is with other dogs so will need to go to a home with another dog to help show her the ropes.
Peanut needs a calm environment and lots of love and attention to help her trust humans and show her what life should be like.

Peanut came to me 10 days ago. She is heavily dependent on my own 2 girls, so definitely needs at least 1 other little doggie friend in her new home, who will let her cuddle in. She is still very frightened of humans and keeps her distance from me, but she is watching how my own dogs interact with me and would love to join in, she just needs a bit more courage. Peanut does not walk on a lead yet but I will be working on that once she trusts me a bit more.  Peanut is about 98% housetrained and on the couple of  occasions she has been caught short she has used a puppy pad.

Little Peanut has now been here for 7 weeks. She is certainly a project dog. Although she will come up to me, if I attempt to touch her she runs away. Trying to put a harness and lead on her is still a long way off.
She is still very dependent on my own dogs and will happily cuddle up with them, and go to sleep, but if they are on my lap she stands about a yard from me and though, she does not want to be left out she will not come and sit beside us.
I tried to leave her on her own so that I could walk my dogs all at the same time and she barked and cried the whole time I was out, so we are back to always leaving one of mine with her. She will come round it will just take patience and time.
She has now found the courage to go out into the garden on her own for a little wander


 

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.
