Background – Dana arrived in rescue recently after being dumped and it is suspected she was, sadly, no longer needed for breeding. She was kindly taken in to foster by one of our kennel staff.

Character – Dana’s foster carer says she is a pleasure to have as a house guest and has been no trouble. Dana loves attention and lives peacefully with the other dogs in the home. She likes to play, although the other dogs in the home do not so she has managed well with being grumbled at by her peers. She isn’t possessive over food and happily shares her toys. Dana loves to greet visitors and is always pleased to meet new people.

Dogs and cats – Although she currently lives with other dogs Dana would probably be fine as an only dog too.

Training – Dana learns basic commands quickly, including crate training. She can now be left for short periods of time but her new owner would need to increase this gradually.

Type of home – Dana is pretty easy going but would like someone to play with her. She would prefer someone to be home the majority of the time although is getting used to being left for short periods. It is suspected that Dana may have hip dysplasia so her new home doesn’t need to be too active – hiking over hills isn’t going to be her thing!

Dana is in foster in Somerset. Applicants must be willing to accommodate a home check, vet reference check (where applicable) and willing to attend a meet and greet at her foster home.
