Grace is a gorgeous 4 year old, black and tan Cavalier, ex breeding girl.She has made enormous strides since she came into rescue and is becoming much more confident. She is very happy with the dogs in her foster home and will need a home where there is another confident resident dog to support her.Although Grace doesn't like travelling in the car, she gets stressed and dribbles, she just sits quietly in her dog seat on the back seat, attached by a belt to her harness. She adores her walks and sniffing her peemails. She has a lead attached to her harness and another lead attached to her collar for safety, but she has never shown any nervousness when out, even wanting to go and investigate the bin men.Traffic and other people do not bother her but she will not let other people stroke her. If foster mum stops to chat, socially distanced, she just sits next to her. She will walk by herself but prefers doggy company. Grace walks really nicely on a lead, constantly turning and checking that her human is at the end of the lead, the frequency is decreasing.Grace responds to her name and will sit on command. At night or if foster mum has to go out she sleeps in the kitchen with the other dogs, she is house trained. She doesn't react adversely to any household noises, hoover, washing machine, lawnmower. Grace prefers to eat alone without you watching her. She is quite noisy while food is being prepared.Grace loves exploring the garden, but doesn’t really play as yet, she chews a nylabone quite happily. She jumps up on the sofa and loves cuddles. Grace is now a confident dog with her foster mum and a new bond would need to be established when she is adopted, this may take a while. She is quite a character and an adorable girl.Grace has a grade 3 heart murmur with some enlargement and is on Cardisure medication which she will need to remain on. She has had a dental with 9 teeth being removed.It is a requirement there is at least one confident dog in her forever home to give her confidence. She is not cat tested but she looks intently at them if she sees one out on a walk. She cannot be rehomed with children under 12 as she can be very nervous and is not used to children. Her adopter must be around for most of the day.Grace is in foster in Horncastle, Lincolnshire. The successful applicant must live within 90 minutes of the foster home.
