How much training will I need?

Can I be left alone?

No
Ghost has the potential to be left home on her own in the future but as she was a stray we are unsure if she has lived in a house before. Once settled she can be left for short periods and with training, the time gradually increased.

Do I have any medical conditions?

Existing conditions

Additional information

Ideally Ghost needs to be rehomed to a family with an existing, well socialised and friendly dog. She's a very nervous lady and another dog helps to slowly bring Ghost out of her shell and to build her confidence.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Due to her very worried behaviour, Ghost needs to live with a quiet family with minimal visitors and no young visiting children. She can live with teenagers and over, and is looking for a household with no more than 2-3 people in the home.
Once you have spent time with her and gained her trust she is a real sweetie and will look to you for guidance.

What type of environment would suit me?

Ghost would like to live in a very quiet area, away from too many people, busy town centres and noisy areas. She is easily spooked by new environments and if she does get scared, she will run. A private, 6ft fenced garden is ideal for Ghost. She can enjoy off lead zoomies but in a safe and secure place.

About Ghost

Ghost is a sensitive girl who must be allowed to settle and feel comfortable in her own time, allowing her to build a bond with the whole family and to start to trust again.
She was bought into us as a stray and we have no knowledge of her background or what potentially she has gone through.
She will play with soft squeaky toys on her own but is not confident enough to play with them with people yet. It would be great to see her playing more comfortably with toys and knowing how much fun they can be.
Ghost is likely to need some extra support when first home but once she starts to settle and you see her true personality appear, it will be so rewarding watching her grow in confidence and to discover the world is not such a scary place to be.

Things to note

Potential new owners should be prepared to come to the charity to meet her several times, to build a bit of a bond before taking her home.
