Debby was rescued from a gypsy camp in Portugal as a young puppy. Unfortunately she had been very neglected and arrived in a poor state. Since her rescue she has made considerable progress in both her health and level of socialisation, and now we're looking for a secure, loving home where she can settle down and have the attention she deserves.
Debby is a playful, energetic dog, who needs an active lifestyle in a more rural environment. She currently shares a kennel with another dog in the shelter and gets on well with him, but can sometimes have trouble distinguishing between play fighting and actual fighting. She doesn't enjoy overly rough play and dislikes it when other dogs don't know when to stop. She has never caused injury but she will snap if she gets overwhelmed and for this reason we do not recommend a home with children. 90% of the time Debby plays very happily and we think this will improve once she's in her own home.
Debby loves going for walks, enjoys a fuss from people and is a very smart dog. She is always on the go and would suit an active lifestyle very well. She is young and full of energy, and we think she would enjoy channeling this into agility or obedience training. Debby enjoys playing in water and likes routine. She is in great health and in the right home she will absolutely blossom.
