DESCRIBE THE DOG'S IDEAL HOME, WHAT KIND OF FAMILY WOULD HE SUIT, AND WHERE WOULD HE BE HAPPIEST. Her ideal home would be with someone who is either at home all day or can take her to work with them. Preferably no other dogs as she gets jealous. She needs to be the centre of someone’s world. She can be with children over 6 as younger ones can be unpredictable.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL US ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT YOUR FOSTER DOG THAT HASN'T BEEN COVERED ABOVE? She is great in the car she just curls up and sleeps.

She loves puddles, snow and digging.

She loves wearing her jumper and her bandana.
