We would like to take this opportunity to thank Louise Toon, Simon Toon and their family for another fabulous foster. you guys are truly amazing, and we are super grateful.

A little of Millie’s story below,

Millie has had a long road to recovery after coming into us requiring cruciate ligament repair. She has had crate rest and a fantastic recovery with the help of her foster family. This little girl is amazing.

Millie is a quirky and loving little girl who loves playing with her toys and enjoys all human interaction. She has changed a lot from the anxious girl she was when she came into foster requiring a cruciate ligament operation, she is now far less anxious and is happy to be around the children in her foster home.  She is playful and loving and enjoys strokes and being brushed.

She really enjoys her walks and gets excited when she has her harness put on. She doesn’t pull as much as she did, but this is still being worked on by her foster family. Millie isn’t good at recall so she is kept on her lead and this is an area that can be worked on with her new family.

Millie is not keen on other dogs if they come up to her and she will warn them, but she will walk past them at a distance without concern.

She understands commands such as sit, paw, bed etc

Things to be Aware of:

Mille has been crate rested for a while due to a cruciate ligament operation and has been recuperating from her operation, but she is well on her road to recovery.

She had been anxious about strangers coming into the home but now she is feeling better she copes well with meeting new people. Her foster mum will put her behind the stair gate so she can see the person in the house and then she can come and say hello.

Once introduced, Millie is calm & happy to have fuss and belly rubs

The Ideal Family:

Millie is best suited to a calm home where there is not a lot happening although she likes to be in the mix and doesn’t like being left out.

Millie is really enjoying being around the children in the home so she will be happy in a home either on her own or with dog savvy children.

Her new owners will need to increase her exercise gently to get her to full fitness. This will mean lead walks for a good few months, we will advise

Other comments:

She is very loving with her foster family and she enjoys her routine. She was a very fit girl before her injury and she enjoyed long woodland walks, She is healing very well so there is no reason to assume she couldn’t get her complete fitness back.

This young girl requires a special owner who is willing to work with her because of her nature, any prospective owner will need to go and meet Millie in her home at least once if not more, to see how she reacts and to understand how she is managed with positive reinforcement.

Millie can get stressed in the car, we think she now associates it with going to the vet, but she settles down and we don’t see this as an issue, just an awareness.

She can be left for up to 4 hours, she is toilet trained, up to date with her vacs and will be spayed before she goes to her new home.
