Talli is a young lurcher girl (probably a whippet x collie) who is about 16 weeks old. She will only grow to a smallish size.
She is cat trainable and loves kids. She can live in a home with cats that are used to dogs and owners willing to put the work into helping her live with the cat.
Talli could live with kids of any age who know how to behave around young dogs – is a little excited at first but will calm down fairly quickly. Talli spends most of her day with a 3 year old and after initial greetings will settle down for a cuddle and go to sleep.
She is good with the dogs in her foster home and is currently living with an older Shetland sheepdog and a border collie. She has learnt social skills from these dogs and when they tell her enough she takes heed. She does like a good game though!
She needs someone around most of the time – she can be left for an hour or so and is better after a short walk or game. She may cry and bark a little when left and likes having the older dog for company. A home with a steady older dog would be ideal.
Talli is partially house trained, but doesn’t know how to tell you when she needs to go outside yet. She is clean at night and has never made any mess in her crate or pen. If the back door is open she will take herself off to pee so is learning quickly.
Talli is a very lovable little girl who loves nothing more than to cuddle up on the settee with you she is playful and loves to learn new things, she spends most of her day with young kids between 3 and 12. These children are dog savvy and will tell Talli off if she jumps up at them.
She is a bundle of fun and love and very trainable – she will need someone around the majority of the time and a stable sensible home to bring her along.
Talli loves meeting new people and is friendly and happy to see them.
She sleeps through the night in her crate in the bedroom and will happily spend short periods in her crate in the day if she’s tired.
Talli is polite meeting dogs out and about and loves it if they want to play.
She travels really well in the car – settles after a few minutes and is happy on long and short journeys.
We will be asking that adopters commit to booking a course of positive reward based dog training classes locally to help Talli bond with them and learn her life skills.
