More About Fiona
Fiona is friendly, playful, social and affectionate. Good with dogs, cats and adults. She is not needy but does thrive on human affection.
Fiona is an extremely affectionate, cuddly and loveable girl who loves to meet new doggy friends.
Fiona needs a large, interesting secure yard or acreage with the opportunity for swimming and regular walks. She would also love another large friendly dog for company and to play with.
Fiona will thrive in a home where she is welcome to be involved with family activities. While she is fine alone during the day she would prefer not to be alone for extended periods because she is very people orientated.
She will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly, time poor, renters or looking for a baby sitter for a lonely dog because the owners are rarely home.
Yes. She has had cats at home forever and loves to play gently with them.
Has lived with cattle and horses in the past.
As she has not had any exposure, children and kids should be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm around animals.
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk).
Fiona currently has a 30 minute daily walk on the lead. She loves swimming and will float around all day. She also enjoys fetch with other dogs but wont play it on her own.
How is this dog on a lead?
She is well behaved on the lead unless she sees something exciting e.g. another dog, and then can be hard to manage. As she is strong her new owner will need to be capable of controlling her.
How is this dog off the lead?
Fiona's recall is excellent if there are no other dogs around. If she sees another dog she will go enthusiastically straight to it wanting to play and not come when called until she has said hello.
No but may wander off if a gate is inadvertently left open.
She tends to alert you to something strange but is otherwise quiet.
Tolerance to being alone.
Good, although loves attention/ affection and has always had other dogs for company.
Food, sleeping, swimming, playing with other big dogs, and human affection.
