    • Alice can live as an only dog
    • Alice would prefer a quiet, calm home
    • Alice has a heart condition

Background – Alice is a newly retired breeding girl. She is thriving in foster care now the health issues she came with have been resolved.

Type of home – A quiet home where someone is around the majority of the time would suit Alice best.

People – Alice can still be a little nervous of new people and situations but is generally quite confident now she has got used to living with people. A lap to snuggle on is her favourite thing and she is cuddly and affectionate. Alice doesn’t yet know how to play with toys but very much enjoys stealing socks and hiding them away!

Children – Alice has lived with children in her foster home but as she prefers a quiet, calm home children over 8 would probably be best.

Dogs and cats – Alice is friendly with dogs when out on walks and has lived with other dogs before. However, she has a tendency to be a bit bossy with dogs in the home so no other dogs or perhaps a calm canine companion who doesn’t mind if Alice rules the roost. Alice hasn’t met any cats yet.

Outside of the home – Gentle strolls are best for Alice as she does have a heart condition. She would enjoy a walk in the park or on the beach but wouldn’t be up for any big hikes. Her lead walking is coming on ok but she needs a little more training. Alice loves a good sniff and a little run around on the long line but her recall is not yet good enough to be walked off lead. Alice is happy to travel in the car.

Health – Alice was in a poor state when she arrived in foster care. She badly needed a dental and had ear infections as well as a couple of other issues that have now cleared up. Alice has cataracts in both her eyes although these don’t seem to affect her as yet. Alice does have a heart condition and needs 2 types of medication each day to manage this.

Adoption Process Alice is in foster in Weston-super-Mare and applicants will need to visit her in her home as well as undergo the usual home check and vet check (where applicable) as part of the adoption process.
