Hello, my name is Nellie and I am 4 years old. I'm vaccinated, flea/wormed, and I am neutered.
I don't have any allergies or illnesses either.
I do get a little over excited when I see other dogs, I just want to go and play. But equally, I don't like dogs running up to my face either, I'll growl at them as a warning to leave me be. I've never attacked any dogs though or bitten them.
I've never bitten a human either, and I don't mind children as long as they are dog savvy. Children need to know when to give me my space, I like to go and lie down and rest too sometimes. So I'd be better with children perhaps over 10 years old who understand this.
It's possible that I could live with a friendly neutered male dog, as long as there are slow introductions with parallel walks to see if we get on.
My recall is hit & miss, I'm a Terrier and Terriers like to chase! So if there's a rabbit or something else to distract me, I'm gone! I need help and training with this and I'm probably better on a long lead. Basic training is pretty similar, I can sit, stay and all the basic stuff, but I do get bored. My teachers say I'm easily distracted. Whatever do they mean!?
I'm walked with a harness and that's great, until I see another dog. I do pull then, so you will need to hang onto me. I guess I just need more training to walk to heel. I think dog classes would suit me, will you take me?
There's no aggression with people, you can even take a toy off me and I don't mind.
I am crate trained and I don't mind sleeping in my crate at night. Or I can have a bed downstairs, or even better in your room (here's hoping)
You can leave me for a few hours if you must. I will probably whine at first but soon settle down. I'll need people at home though for my settling in period for a few weeks.
