When three year old Mabel arrived into our care from our Inspectorate, she was very undernourished. In the meantime, she’s had lots of TLC from our kennels team and has just had a lovely holiday with one of our fosterers to see how she coped in a home environment and to be looked after whilst she recovers from surgery. This is what her fosterer told us about her:
“I’ve found Mabel to be an absolute sweetheart. She loves her food and is extremely attentive and responsive, so I think will be very easy to train further. I haven’t taught her any commands other than sit and wait, as she’s been recovering nearly the whole time I’ve had her. She is also now currently house trained. She can be very strong on the lead, but I have walked her on a ‘Komfi Calmer’ lead, which is similar to a figure of 8 lead, and she is much more manageable. I have found her to be good around other dogs when out on walks and in the waiting room at the vets. The same goes for children in that she seems very good around kids when out in public but I haven’t tested her in a home environment. Her biggest challenge is that she can be nervous of being held and inspected for vet visits and checking her but she has never growled or shown aggression. She is a lovely girl who will make someone a lovely companion who has time to spend to gain her trust. She loves cuddles and playing
