Gender: Female

Breed: Rottweiler Crossbreed

Shadow is a loving loyal girl when she has bonded with you, enjoying as much fuss as you can give her, leaning right in to you and nuzzling for more affection! Shadow would like an experienced adult only home, with owners that are used to managing and working with a fearful dog, that needs ongoing support, patience and nurturing using positive training techniques. Shadow will need a medium to large sized secure garden to enjoy off lead time in, she’d like a home in a rural location, with quiet walks where she can relax away from crowds and other dogs and take in all the interesting smells of the countryside. Shadow could go home with her daughter Poppy, but otherwise would need to be the only pet in the home. Shadow is strong on lead, we are working with her on this, but it’s likely that she’ll need time to settle into a new home, with increased mental and physical stimulation to allow her to unwind enough to walk at a gentler pace, as she can be an anxious girl out and about at times. Shadow enjoys learning, she’s a clever girl that hasn’t had the chance in life to flourish until now, she would benefit from ongoing force free training to help teach her new skills and help her show off some tricks! Shadow is a real puppy at times, enjoying carrying her teddies around whilst wiggling her bottom at you! Shadow will make a wonderful companion in the right home. Please come along to the shelter and fill out an application if you would like to be considered for Shadow and her daughter Poppy.
