UK foster (Hertfordshire)
Home environment: Experienced adult home with a friendly resident dog.
Cats or small animals: Yes.
Laska is a beautiful, gentle older lady who is in a foster home in Hitchin and is ready to find her forever home. This lovely natured girl arrived from Romania earlier in the year and is now learning to enjoy her home comforts. She has a sweet, calm and placid personality. She is nervous and shy, but shows lots of potential. Laska would love to be in a home with another friendly doggy companion who can show her the ropes and help her gain in confidence. She lives alongside a resident cat with no problem.
Although her DOB states she was born in 2009 we feel she is younger than this and is possibly around 8 years old. With lots of encouragement and positive support, Laska is growing in confidence. She would love to be in a home where someone is close by and around most of the time. She is happy to sleep the day away and is at her happiest pottering around the garden, lying in the sunshine. Therefore a home with a secure garden is essential.
Laska has lovely manners, knows how to sit and stay, shows no aggression around food and takes treats very gently. She sleeps through the night with no issue. Household noises don’t bother her and she travels well in a car. She loves a good back scratch and likes a daily groom too! She will follow you around the garden and hasn’t quite worked out how to play yet, however she is a bright girl with a hint of mischief in her cheeky face!
Laska is still nervous of her head being touched, but this is improving with lots of reassurance and time. As such, she is reluctant to have a lead and harness on and this is very much a work in progress. For this reason, Laska will need adopters with lots of love, time and patience to continue to build her trust and confidence. Experience of nervous and/or rescue dogs is essential.
If you are interested in giving this lovely older lady a home and meet the criteria above, we would love to hear from you.
