If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

02-05-2019 Lolly is a 3 year old ex breeding femal Shih-Tzu. Lolly is a delightful lady but wary of us humans so will need a kind caring home to help her adjust to home life. Due to her lacking in confidence  Lolly will need a resident dog or dogsalready living in the home who she can watch and copy to help her learn about house training and lead walking etc.

Lolly is a beautiful sweet but still very nervous girl. She would need a home with another resident dog to help reassure her that life in a home and us humans aren't all that bad, it would also help with her toilet training and harness/lead training. A calm and quiet home maybe a retired couple who can spend lots of time with lolly to help her adjust. Lolly really is a lovely girl who wants to get to know but hasn't quiet got that confidence just yet, in time I really do think that Lolly will expect and become the fun loving dog she's destined to be

I haven't worked with Lolly for long, but she is quite a character!
She is a typical shihtzu - cheeky and comical! She is a very attractive looking, young lady, with the most beautiful, very circular, big, round eyes, that are full of personality, and quite possibly some mischief! When she sees people she knows coming, she will jump up and run to the front of the kennel to have a good nose at them, and she seems ready for anything!
She might let out a bark, and will throw her head back at the same time! She will approach people to give their hands a good sniff before backing away. You can give her a brief stroke, but this is something she is still not used to and she will run away if she feels you stroking her back! If you need to pick her up, you do have to run around after her, but she is fine to be handled! She just hasn't ever had much contact with us humans.
Lolly shares her beds, food and toys perfectly. She enjoys sitting next to her kennel friends, and loves playing with toys now and again. At playtime she will run out of her kennel and down the corridor into her play yard where she will trot around happily exploring. She has literally just started her harness and lead training today. She walked a little, but sat down a lot! She had a good slow look at her new surroundings though, and then at me slightly unimpressed! She's funny and does make me chuckle!
Lolly will need to be homed with another more confident resident dog. She currently lives with a same size, equally as cheeky dog, as well as a larger, calm cocker. I don't think she necessarily needs to be homed in a quiet home, or with a retired couple as previously mentioned - she just needs a family who has the time and patience for an ex-breeding dog.
Lolly is a very curious natured girl, who just wants to have LOTS OF FUN, and experience life to the full! Given a little time and encouragement, I don't think it'll be too long before this girl is well on her way to putting her miserable past life behind can tell she is ready for what her future has in store for her! I have got to say, I do have a soft spot for this cheeky monkey

Today I met Lolly for the first time she is a very sweet girl although still a bit timid and shy she did come up to me and let me smoothe her.
She will need to have a resident dog to help her along with house training and some much needed confidence, at the moment she is being harness trained and will walk for a little bit as long as she has a friend with her to show her the way this is all new to her so may take some time but with some patients she will get there.
She has a lovely way about her and when in a home with a routine she will come out of her shell and learn to enjoy life, she gets on very well with her kennel friends and likes to cuddle up in bed with them. Lolly hasn't had a good start to life or much interaction with humans so is looking for a home where she will have all the love she has missed out on so far and where her new family will give her all the time she needs to be her true self, she has a little cheeky side to her and is going to make an amazing addition to her new home.

Lolly, is coming on slowly and surely, she has made friends with our dogs and gets on with them all and Poppy Cavalier is her best friend, and follows her every where. She loves to go in the garden, and has a good run around and look into the interesting places. Lolly is eating well and put on weight, is clean in the house, she has got used to routine here and knows where her beakfast and dinner is going to be put, and she comes when I call her to come and eat .She needs a bit more courage yet to walk on the lead yet. She needs a loving and patient home to help her overcome her fears, which she will do given some time and TLC. She is a lovely girl and through all her fear has no bad bone in her body. She has started to play with toys and running off with things like sponges from the bathroom, and she still puts her head back and gives a bark, and she has joined our dogs in letting us know when we have some one around. She will need another small dog to keep her company and show her the ropes, also needs a family with adults and teenage children. Lolly found the sofa and joined the other dogs there with no hesitation, and sleeps well at night with her friends.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
