Blondie arrived in the shelter with her mother and siblings after being rescued as strays. She is a beautiful dog with a lovely nature and in the right home she will absolutely blossom. Blondie is well socialised with other dogs and would be best suited to a home with another confident dog, as this will help her to adjust to living in a home environment. She enjoys the company of both male and female dogs and is playful, friendly and curious.
With people she doesn't know, Blondie is initially shy and takes a little time to trust. Once she bonds with you she is a very loyal, loving and affectionate girl with a calm and gentle nature. She loves going for walks and running about with the other dogs, and when she's comfortable with you she loves a cuddle too. Blondie has been with her mother and siblings ever since she arrived, so adjusting to a home without them will take a little time but with a little patience she will be just fine.
Blondie would be best suited to a fairly active home with a garden in a rural or semi-rural area. She would love the company of at least one other dog so she can play to her heart's content and would prefer a home with older children as she may be initially overwhelmed by young kids as she's not used to being around them all the time. With a little patience, Blondie will make a wonderful companion.
