Gorgeous Ghost has a very special place in our hearts as she was taken in by the Wild at Heart Foundation team after she was dumped at our Puerto Rico clinic this February. As soon as we met her, we knew this amazing dog deserved a better life than she’d been used to on the streets of Puerto Rico, and we arranged for her transportation back to the UK.
Ghost is currently being fostered by our Marketing & Fundraising Manager, Eleanor, and has completely stolen her heart. She is incredibly loving and friendly - she wants to make friends with everyone she meets - and is never happier than when curled up on a lap or enjoying a belly rub. Her beautiful blue eyes have a way of looking right into your soul, and we know that she’ll give her new owners nothing but love and loyalty.
Ghost is a bright dog and quick learner - she has already mastered Sit, Down, Wait, and Watch. Her recall is coming along (although, as with any young dog, she can get distracted!) and she walks beautifully one the lead. She travels well in the car, is fully housetrained, and exhibits no signs of separation anxiety. She is food and praise motivated, and loves to learn, so we know she’d love to keep up her training and obedience in her new home.
Ghost is good with other dogs, although can be a bit wary of larger / more dominant dogs. Although sometimes she can revert to “street dog habits” when she feels stressed (baring her teeth and putting up her hackles) she is fast learning that she needn’t feel threatened any more. Since arriving in the UK, she has been living with another dog and her manners have come on leaps and bounds! She loves playing with her pack of local friends and is a dream at daycare.
Ghost is good with children, and will happily be petted by even the most enthusiastic of young hands! However, as a young dog who’s still learning, she can be boisterous and has a tendency to jump up when playing; she’s learning to sit and wait for attention, but sometimes her excitement gets the better of her!
Ghost’s favourite thing in the whole world is affection - she just wants to love and be loved, and she deserves a home of her own where she can be adored for the wonderful dog she is. She’s got a fabulously goofy personality, and won’t fail to put a smile on your face, no matter how tough your day’s been.
She’s currently living in Hertfordshire and, whilst she’s loving life in England (especially on sunny days!) we know she would be even happier to find her perfect forever home.
