Heather is a sweet and affectionate girl. She is incredible bright and truly loves having her belly rubbed. She enjoys the company of people and would make a great companion in your home office.  

It would be in Heather’s best interest to live in a quiet home without any other pets. We will only consider families with older children (in their late teens) who can offer support to keep her occupied at times.  

Overall, she does struggle in busy environments with many distractions, but on a walk, where there aren’t too many distractions, she walks well on the lead, and is engaged with her handler. She is a playful dog who enjoys learning new tricks, and playing fetch and tugger. 

In busier environments, like towns or parks, she gets very easily overwhelmed and overstimulated and can become reactive to a wide range of things such as leaves, birds, scent, but most severely to other dogs. For this reason, we do not recommend that she attend high distraction environments like dog parks, busy or common dog walking areas or doggy-daycare.

She is highly dog-reactive; most likely, this is due to an insecurity around other dogs. She is prone to lunge, growl and bark. She has poor recall due to being highly distracted by the surrounding environment. 

Heather is a very strong dog, particularly in these instances where she is over-aroused. We would also encourage anyone interested in rehoming Heather to continue to further her training with one of our recommended behaviour and training consultants.  

Heather is coprophagic*, and would need to be supervised while outdoors. This behaviour may reduce once she is in a quieter environment and less over-aroused. 

Heather is on a hypoallergenic diet and Cortavance ear drops once a week for maintenance as she is prone to ear infection and debris build-up.  

Application Deadline: 29 April 2024 

* Coprophagia is a behaviour where a dog re-ingests its own excreted faeces
