Kara is a blue roan Cocker Spaniel who came into rescue from a breeder. She is approximately 5 years old.Kara is a slightly nervous girl who is enjoying life, she loves going on walks, exploding out of the back gate. Her confidence is improving day by day. She has been reluctant to go in the garden but this has vastly improved in recent days and she is far happier exploring rather than crawling to foster mum on her tummy.When out on a walk Kara loves to sniff her pee mails and is happy to meet some people, she does not pull on a lead and harness but tends to keep swopping sides, this has greatly improved and she tends to walk on the left. If foster mum stops to talk she does tend to sink to the ground and roll over, her confidence is improving. Traffic and other noises, when out, do not bother her. Lead training is work in progress, as is getting her to sit.Kara responds to her name and quickly comes in from the garden when called. She is a cuddle monster, loving the sofa and cuddles in the evenings or when foster mum sits down. During the day she will often now come for a fuss.She travels well in the car in a dog seat, on the back seat, attached by her harness. She is house trained and at night or if foster mum has to go out she stays in the kitchen with the other dogs, no problem. Kara is not fazed by household sounds. She is fed on Burns and Lily’s Kitchen. As yet Kara has not shown any real interest in toys or her doggy friends but is quite happy to cuddle up with them.She has been spayed while in rescue and has had a dental. She needed to have three nipples removed that were extremely thickened and of worrying appearance. The good news is that the biopsy results came back clear of cancer. She has a very slight heart murmur, at present this needs no action but must be monitored.Kara is not cat tested, she will look at them if she sees any whilst out on walks but does not try to chase them. Since we do not know her history regarding children she cannot be rehomed with children under 14 and will also need a calm, resident dog to show her the ropes and preferably a quiet home.Kara is in foster in Horncastle, Lincolnshire. The successful applicant must live within 90 minutes of the foster home.
