More About Me
Sprinkles is social, loyal, eager to please, warm and affectionate. She is good with kids, dogs, cats and toilet trained. She is good on and off the lead. Her only vice is that she suffers from separation anxiety (SA). Her new owner will need to manage this and work on strategies to reduce her anxiety over time.
She needs a firm but kind owner who will cherish and spoil her without mollycoddling or fussing over her.
She currently needs a lot of attention and will make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a little shadow.
Sprinkles should be fine with another friendly permanent dog in the home however, this is not a solution to her SA.
As Sprinkles is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities.
She will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, novice dog owners, renters or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active. Needs a daily walk.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs she starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Stays close by and comes when called.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure. Requires 6' (1.8 meter) high colour bond type fencing without foot holds to climb e.g. trellis, wire etc.. Wood panelled fencing is not secure enough. At the moment she tends to chew wooden things when alone e.g kids toys.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Sprinkles is being rehomed because her young family cannot manage her SA. Currently when left alone she starts to bark which turns into whining.
Sprinkles will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Sprinkles dislikes being by herself or being left outside if others are inside. However, Sprinkles is still only young and SA usually improves with the right owner and environment.
Sprinkles has been very well looked after. She is friendly, playful and loves everyone - kids, dogs and cats alike. She is good on and off the lead, toilet trained and incredibly warm.
A bright, happy and adorable young girl looking for a new start.
