Please meet the gorgeous 1 year old Yorkshire Terrier girl Kez. Little Kez came to us back in November from a pound in the Midlands where she was at risk of put to sleep due to showing aggression. We agreed to take her and work with her but when she arrived she starting coughing and we were in a real predicament as all our available foster homes had dogs that would be vulnerable if they caught kennel cough. With that in mind she has stayed with our founder Eileen on long term foster.
Kez has been with us in foster for all this time and is now 100% fit and healthy. Her fosterer has been working on her issues which are based around fear. When she came into foster she was very aggressive towards other dogs, but as you can see with a little time and careful introduction she is doing very well and actually enjoys the company of other dogs.
She is very attached to her fosterer and will need an understanding home to give her time to adjust to any other changes in her life. We believe she could live with another dog, but would need careful introductions.
Because she is fearful, we would not home her to a home with children or visiting children and she would really like a quiet calm environment with someone around most of the time. She would also not be suitable to live with cats
Kez is a special girl who is looking for a kind, loving home to keep her safe and spend time continuing working on the issues she has. She may always lack in confidence in new situations and around strange dogs but she continues to improve all the time.
Being in her current foster home she has encountered lots of different dogs of all shapes and sizes and she does learn to accept them but she hates change so could do with a consistent life style. She has never bitten her foster mum who always lets her know if she needs to be picked up but she is a naughty girl in the vets and on those occasions she is muzzled.
The rewards you would gain would be the love and unwavering affection of this little fluff ball who in her short life must have experienced some major traumas to make her so afraid. She is though a delightful, funny little dog who loves to stand at the top of the garden and tell the birds off.
Kez is chipped, vaccinated and neutered, she is currently in foster in South Wales and any potential home will need to visit her there.
