Mia is approx a year old. She’s not spayed having recently had her first unplanned litter of puppies in September.
Mia is has spent most of her short life in a crate and as such she has anxieties which manifest themselves by her barking at lots of things outside the home (cars, traffic, other dogs etc). Due to lack of socialisation in her early months she needs a confident, owner experienced with anxious rescue dogs.
She is has previous lived with an older male dog, and we feel that she would benefit from living with an older, calmer neutered male who won’t be a threat to her and could help with her confidence issues.
Mia needs someone with who is willing to commit to training, and is around a good deal of the time as she tends to chew if left and becomes bored. Mia’s anxieties arent going to be fixed overnight but she has the potential to be an amazing companion.
Update: 20 Jan 19 – Mia is currently working with one of our volunteers on a training plan designed by our Rescue behaviourist for her anxiety. Anyone wishing to be considered to adopt Mia will need to continue this work so will need to have the time and commitment for this.
