This beautiful little lady is 8 month old Hope, who came into our care after having a sad start to life.

Hope is vaccinated and microchipped but not yet had her first season.

New owners will be required to sign a neutering contract to spay her when old enough.

Hope was born in May 2020, and the breeder kept her - even after Hope's mum bit her , causing damage to her ear. Hope was rehomed in November but sent back to breeder after 10 days. This is when breeder contacted us for help & Hope arrived with us shortly after.
Hope was suffering from ear problems, but this has cleared nicely, and is nearly resolved. She was a very nervous girl having been shut in the house when owner moved out, and only visited to let her out, or feed her.
When our assessor visited there were signs of food aggression, exacerbated with her owners handling of this, but since being with us in kennels she has not shown any food aggression or possession issues and happily lets us take food, treats away from her.

Hope had no idea of how she was expected to behave and had never been given any boundaries or guidance so was clueless as to how to behave around people, dogs etc. When she felt happy & excited she would jump up and nip quite hard, and grab at clothing etc. With our guidance she rarely does this anymore, only when her excitement gets too much, and she reverts back to nipping. She is a very biddable dog, she just needs guidance on how to behave in certain situations.
Hope was never housetrained, but is pretty clean in her kennel so this should be easily picked up.
When she meets strangers she does bark and run away, but with a few meets and calm guidance she relaxes and accepts strangers.
She has no idea how to behave around other dogs as her experience was poor and limited. She does snap a little if they get too close, but again this is something that in time she and with training she will easily overcome.
Hope had never been on a lead, and is still very kangaroo like but is getting better. She is nervous of the outside world, having very little experience of it, and does try to hide behind you from any 'scary' things like traffic / horses. Again , in time this will improve.
Due to Hopes nervousness we wont rehome her with young children. She cannot be rehomed with cats.

This beautiful little lady will only go to a home that will commit to her 100% and work with her to gain her confidence, guide her into adulthood and help her to relax into her own skin and to enjoy just being a 'dog'.

Hope is currently in kennels in Preston.
