Dolly: 2 years, spayed female, Spaniel x Setter


Dolly may look lovely but she is looking for quite a specific home so please read her criteria thoroughly before applying.

Dolly is looking for an experienced, knowledgeable owner who understands canine body language well. Dolly would benefit from going to training classes to work on her dog socialization, lead skills and handling.  Dolly is so fun to train, very bright and receptive, She would be a great dog for agility, hoopers or scent work enthusiasts. She needs an owner who can handle her well, as she can be fairly strong on lead. 

Dolly came in to us on the 30th of March via another rescue. She was an unclaimed stray.

She is a very lively, active girl who is very eager when out on her walks and interested in everything around her. She has boundless energy and is looking for an active, rural home with someone who has experienced of similar breeds. Dolly can be a bit wary of new people when she first meets them but soon becomes your friend after a bit of bribery with a few treats! 

She has been sociable with most other dogs while she has been with us but can be very vocal and over enthusiastic when she first meets them. She will need to be the only dog in the home. Dolly needs a home without cats or small animals.

She is looking for an experienced, energetic owner who will continue her training. Dolly will need a garden and an owner who can handle her strength as she can be fairly strong for her size! She cannot live with children. 

Dolly has been in a foster home for a couple of weeks and this is what her fosterers have said about her:-

Dolly is an exceptional dog, happy, healthy, beautiful to look at, naturally sweet natured, friendly, full of fun and very intelligent, as well as extremely lively. She loves a game and is happy to spend a great deal of time perfecting her catch technique with a bouncing ball. She has also learned to fetch and drop. She sits on command and can give her paw. She is housetrained and sleeps through the night with no problems. Although very active and excitable, she can settle down very quickly in the house, and is no bother at meal times.

Dolly is sometimes insecure. She loves her humans around her, appreciates cuddles and loves treats when she has been a good girl.

There is, however, room for improvement! She pulls on the lead and is very strong. She lunges at anything that moves, including vehicles, horses, people and other dogs and is in need of a patient trainer to address these issues.

She needs a lot of exercise and a large, secure garden where she can run without danger. She has the potential to make an outstanding pet.
