Meet Fuzz

Fuzz is a big dog with a big heart who has been left alone far too much in her 4 year life span and this makes her desperate for your attention, pats and cuddles which means she can be a bit enthusiastic when first greeting you. She was not trained sufficiently as a puppy but has been making some strides in the right direction since coming into care. She does know how to sit however stay and come are being worked on. She does know how to walk loose lead but needs to understand there can be more than one leader in her life. She gets very anxious when meeting other dogs while she is on lead, common sense is lost and she strains on lead. Fuzz is a healthy weight with a great long shaggy glamour coat. Introductions with other dogs would need to be very guided as her anxiety, size,and weight can intimidate other dogs. She needs ongoing training and socialisation with other dogs especially on lead and she will make a great family pet. She in currently in a foster home with 3 children the youngest being 7 and she is fine with them. Because little kids could easily be knocked over by accident by such a big dog, we would require her to go to a home with older children.

Fuzz was adopted on 18 September 2010 after 3 weeks in foster care
