OVERALL - Lottie is a lovely, gentle, pretty girl, who will make someone a wonderful companion.
Our longest resident Lottie is in foster with Auntie Jo in Gloucestershire. Lottie needs a home with another dog, and a quietish environment. Lottie is now living with 5 dogs, 2 cats and 2 older teenagers. It has taken her 3 weeks to now accept the cat (see video).
Lottie doesn't have a bad bone in her body! Considering her awful start in life she has come on hugely. She really is a sweet and gentle dog, who loves to be with you and will make someone a loving companion. She enjoys running around exploring the garden, going for walks, playing with her foster siblings, having food and treats and getting lots of cuddles and tummy rubs. She absolutely loves to snuggle next to us on the sofa and to be invited onto the bed!
We think Lottie is a Corgidor mix - a Corgi /Labrador. She has a long body, lovely sleek black fur with a white stripe on her chest and white markings on three of her paws, soft brown eyes and wonderful large ears which get admired by everyone she meets! She is so unusual and striking people often stop to ask about her.
Lottie was rescued from a kill shelter in Romania and came to a foster home in the UK in October 2017. She took a while to settle into living in a home but has now changed hugely and needs a home of her own.
Lottie can be a little nervous of people she doesn’t know, but is getting more confident all the time and if people are patient and let her come to them she will come forward for a sniff and enjoy having her head and neck stroked. She is very affectionate with the people she knows and likes to cuddle up or sit on your knee.
Lottie has now been lead trained. She does still pull when she is excited to be going somewhere, so needs more work on this. She has good recall and enjoys running around in the fields. When out on walks she will now walk past other dogs without reacting, but she will bark and pull back on the lead if the other dog is too close to her or barks at her. She has never shown any aggression towards any dogs or humans.
Lottie has learnt to ‘sit’, ‘paw’ and is brilliant at ‘wait’. She always sits and waits beautifully while her food is put down, watching you intently for the ‘ok’ which means she can eat! She will happily settle in her bed when we are busy and can be left alone for short periods. She travels very well in the car.
Lottie needs a home with someone who will continue to build up her confidence. She really enjoys the companionship of another dog so we are looking to re-home Lottie with another calm dog. A quiet household would be best for her as she takes time to adapt to new situations.
Lottie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, deflead and has a passport.
