Doesn't have cats
❤️ Incredible Izzy ❤️
Izzy is a beautiful girl who loves everyone! She loves to lick your face and give you kisses, she has no boundaries when she wants to love on you 💕
HOUSEHOLD- Izzy would be suitable for most households however she is a solid young lady who might be too much for young children or the elderly when she gets over excited.
ON-GOING TRAINING- Izzy does need some lead work and ongoing training with her basic commands. She knows how to sit but unless you have food to motivate her this cheeky girl isn’t interested.
ON LEAD- Izzy likes to sniff the ground when out walking so at times she will pull hard on the lead. Izzy is a social girl and if allowed will also pull towards other canine to say hi. She requires a strong confident owner to correct these behaviours.
To help Izzy, we suggest the use of a harness and a lead or a halti to help control her while out walking. Also a regular walking routine to get her use to different environments and settings.
PLAY/TOYS- Izzy hasn’t shown any interest in playing with toys. Staff have tired to get her to interact with toys but she wasn’t interested.
OTHER DOGS- Izzy loves other dogs. She has no problems with dogs and very tolerant of them being invasive of her and her space. Izzy is suitable to be rehomed with another dog.
CATS/OTHER ANIMALS- Izzy was very cautious walking into our cattery. There were lots of cats making it well known she wasn’t welcome and Izzy became quite scared and would jump back when she was startled. Staff tried to get Izzy to look at a cat but she wasn’t interested.
For the time being Izzy isn’t suited to be rehomed with cats as she seems too fearful of them and we don’t want her to have any additional stresses in her new home.
CARE/GROOMING- When Izzy arrived she had a heavy flea burden and scabs from scratching which has resulted in hair loss on her tail and lower back. The hair is slowly growing back and won’t cause any ongoing issues.
She has a short Staffy coat which will require a weekly brush and a wash when needed.
EXERCISE- Izzy has plenty of energy and loves being outdoors. She will require a daily walk or run in her new home or even time playing with another dog.
Izzy has shown some love for water as staff have seen her lying next to her water bowl dunking her head in and out of it having a great time!
Izzy is suitable to be at dog friendly locations.
NUTRITION- Izzy loves food and if given the chance would eat and eat. She is at a good weight now but her food intake will need to be monitored so she doesn’t over eat and become overweight.
Izzy can inhale food at times as she can eat quite fast. A go slow bowl might be a good idea in her new home.
