This is Whitey she lost her eye with her previous owner when she was a young pup, she has lived a sheltered life with 5 of her brothers and sisters and her mum and dad. Unfortunately due to personal circumstances all the dogs bar Whitey's one sister have come into rescues and been rehomed, Whitey is the last of them to need a new home.
Whitey can be quite nervous of the outside world and quite worried, but once she has bonded with you she loves you whole heartidly. Because she only has the sight of one eye she can be nervous of noises and things going on suddenly and doesn't see from a certain angle
Whitey needs lead training and understanding that a lead means a walk and that is a fun thing not a bad thing, this is taking time. Unfortunately within 3 days of arriving in the rescue she came into season, so has been under house arrest for the last 3 weeks as she has proved herself to be a bit of a tart. I cannot comprehend why anybody would chose, as a preference to allow their dogs to go through this, it hasn't been pleasant and not something I would recommend.
She is a real sweetie pie and greets me like a long lost friend whenever I come back into the room, she likes the other dogs but has only just started interacting with them; she was quite frightened on the initial meeting and greeting.
She has got to have a fully enclosed garden as, when I first had her I couldn't trust her not to try and jump the fencing
She loves her food and her settee and is going to make a wonderful lovely sweet dog but it will have to be the right home. She will not be suitable with children under 10 purely due to her worry and nerves.
