Pointer cross 1 year old
Venus is a gorgeous pointer-setter cross. She is very small and just coming up to one year old, her date of birth is 27/03/2020.
Venus is now in Shropshire UK. Her family renamed her Dottie and she says..
” Dottie is a very petite little girl and an absolute sweetheart, who loves every person she meets, welcoming them with her super waggy tail. She’s a bundle of energy, but once calmed down, she is a very gentle girl, who just wants to be with you for some fuss.
She loves spending her time watching the birds in the sky, and sniffing for any little twig she can find in the garden.
Dottie sleeps perfectly settled in her own bed at night, for a good 9hrs without a peep from her, and is always very excited to say hello in the morning.
She’s good on her lead, and recognises her name and ‘Dottie Come’ as a recall in the garden, pending no birds for her to be wowed by! She loves her toys, and will play fetch for hours if there’s a willing participant.
She’s brilliant in the house, and currently stands at the back door waiting to be let out to toilet.
She loves her food, and has gained some much needed weight since being in the UK, however she much prefers to eat her food out of the bowl, on a flat surface.
Dottie is a confident young dog, and has taken every new sight, sound and smell in her stride, settling into a home environment very quickly. She will make the absolute perfect family side kick, and has the brains to learn very quickly.”
Venus is extremely playful with other dogs, she would like to play 24/7, she is still just a big puppy and does not know all the polite dog cues on when to stop. She is insistent on playing and this has given problems with the existing cocker spaniel in her first adoptive home and led to a failed adoption and she is now looking for another home.
Venus had a tough start in life, living as a pet but with people who could not care for her, an elderly person who felt sorry for her took her out for a walk and even took care of her at home for a few days, but she was a very old person with a broken leg and since Venus was not sterilized, a lot of dogs were interested in her, and the lady fell a couple of times trying to manage Venus and crutches, so asked the shelter for help. Venus then moved into foster with other dogs in Spain and did really well.
Venus has a wonderful nature and is very well behaved in her foster home. She gets on very well with male and female dogs, she is extremely playful and can be a little insistent and pushy in her play.
Venus is a very young pointer-setter cross, she will be active and probably have a strong prey drive. She would suit an active home. She is such a pretty girl with unusual tricolouring.
Venus arrived with a wound at the end of her tail where she had caught it on something and then wagging and hitting things continually takes the scab off. This is a common pointer issue and can take some time to heal properly.
