Izzy is a beautiful special girl who came into care with a seriously injured leg. Despite best efforts, it was decided that she would be better off without her leg and it was amputated. Since then she has not looked back. Izzy is playful, happy and just wants to be loved and cuddled. She does like to race around and have a game with other dogs but as she cannot run away from danger she will need to only be with other friendly happy dogs. Izzy is great on a lead and is good with children. Please don’t overlook this lovely girl simply because she is not “perfect”. – See more at:





seems almost completely deaf but this doesn’t get in her way, as she is intelligent and responsive to training (especially if there are treats involved). From having no training in the first 9 months of life, she has learned the meaning of 5-6 hand signal commands as well as to sit and wait for her dinner in just over a week with her foster carers. She has also quickly learnt the routine of her foster home, and if given enough exercise and stimulation during the day, settles on her bed or just outside the kitchen in quiet mode for the evening, keeping an eye on dinner preparations.

Tes has not had much guidance or boundaries put in place during her first 9 months of life and it seems that she has been left to amuse herself in a yard for long periods of time in the past. She will benefit from calm, assertive guidance and a patient owner willing to socialize her, involve her in their daily activities, and most importantly put the time in to bring out her best.

Her on-lead walking is progressing well, but she does take a bit too much interest in cars at present. She has however already improved a great deal in this regard. She is an active adolescent dog with energy to burn and it seems as if she will make a great running companion with a bit more work learning to run at heel and to ignore cars and fellow walkers. She really enjoys beach walks / runs on a long line where she can run off some puppy steam whilst still able to be recalled (as she is deaf). She is starting to show interest in toys and food puzzles, which is fantastic and a way to provide her with mental stimulation, as a week ago she showed no interest / did not know what they were.

She is perfect when travelling by car, happily going on outings, sitting calmly (or sleeping) during the drive.
She has not shown any food or resource guarding behaviours at her foster home. Tes sleeps on her bed at night, currently located on the floor of the bedroom. She has started crate training. She is toilet trained and knows how to use a doggie door. She will need good fencing to keep her safe and away from cars.



If you are reading this then you had better be fast and apply for this little guy as he won’t stay available for long!
