4 Years Old
White and cream
Hey everyone! I’m Noddy and I’m now 4 years old. I’m an absolutely adorable cross breed, any guesses what I’m mixed with are welcome! I’ve been at the shelter for over 9 months and I’m now looking for my forever home.
I can be quite nervous of new people, especially men and children but my friends at the shelter are helping me to see that people aren’t so scary. My guardian family have visitors often and say that I’m friendly with most of them. I just need to meet you once and I normally decide straight away that we can be friends. The types of things that still worry me are people that move too fast so no running around me please! This is why it’s best if I don’t live with children, I have been known to hang onto trousers of anyone moving too quickly! Kind of scary for some people so I am now muzzle trained to prevent me from doing this.
I’m not keen on other animals either so I’ll need to be the only pet. My guardian family bring me to the JSPCA three times a week for training around other dogs. Sometimes I do brilliantly and I’m calm around them but other days I just don’t want to be anywhere near them, I’m just not that sociable, kind of like some people I know. We all have good days and bad days. Anyone that wants to adopt me will be shown how to do my training as many times as they need to until they feel comfortable carrying it out on their own. I promise it’s not too difficult.
I am on the foster scheme at the JSPCA as I have had problems with my legs in the past so I can’t do too much exercise, a couple of twenty – thirty minute walks a day are perfect for me or maybe just one 40 minute walk. After that I’ll be quite tired. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have lots of energy! I would still like to play with my toys at home and potter about in the garden and don’t forget my favourite things to do…cuddles and naps!
If you think I sound like the pooch for you, pop into reception and fill out an application form! Fingers crossed my forever family are going to be visiting soon, in the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming of the day I’m adopted.
