Kenzie – reserved

  • Lovely Kenzie is a 5 year old collie lurcher who measures 23 inches floor to shoulder.
  • She is an affectionate girl who loves human company.  Men seem to be her favourite!
  • Kenzie came to us because she was being left 9 hours a day and this had led her to suffer from separation anxiety.
  • She is currently left for no more than about an hour or so at a time and is better left after a walk.  Currently, she may cry or howl on and off when left but is not destructive.
  • We feel that in a new home, given time and patience,  Kenzie will gradually become more comfortable about being left. She has already improved a great deal during her time in foster.  Kenzie will never be happy in a home where she reguarly needs to be left for long periods though.
  • She has the potential to accompany her adopter to work should the work environment allow this.
  • Kenzie travels well in the car and actually gets quite excited when she knows she’s going for a ride.
  • She is house trained and will ask to go out.
  • She walks nicely on the lead but can bounce and prance a little with excitement.
  • She has not been off lead and would need training to be able to do so. However, she is a very intelligent dog who shows great recall in both the house and garden and learns quickly.
  • Kenzie could live with calm, dog savvy children over the age of 10 but does get a little bit wary and scared sometimes so a busy noisy home probably wouldn’t suit her.
  • She is in foster with three other dogs and gets on well with all of them.  Out and about, she can get a bit bouncy and barky when she sees another dog but this just seems to be frustration. It can be a bit much for some dogs though and so meetings on lead don’t really suit her.
  • She has visited two greyhounds in their home (male and female) and meetings went very well.  We feel she could live with a sensible calm dog (ideally the same size as her or larger) but would also be happy as an only dog provided she had plenty of human company.
  • Kenzie has been cat tested and was very uninterested in the two dog savvy cats in the home. We therefore feel she is cat trainable in a sensible home.
  • Although Kenzie does show an interest in wildlife, particularly birds, she is very easily distracted.
  • She has seen both cows and horses and although she was keen to say hello to the horse, was unfazed by them.
  • In her previous home, Kenzie has enjoyed taking part in agility.
  • Kenzie is a bright, intelligent dog who can be a little wary at times but once she gains confidence and is settled into her forever home she will be a cracking little dog.
  • She is in foster in Toddington, Bedfordshire.
