Breed: Female Pomeranian cross
Darling Tammy is an endearing cuddle bug who loves attention from her people. A bright and friendly girl, Tammy enjoys snuggles on the couch, pottering in the yard, and attention from people, big and small. She sleeps quietly on her bed through the night, but wouldn’t say no to sharing the human bed if it was on offer.
Tammy travels well in the car and is fine being respectfully handled at the vets and around the house. Tammy came into care unversed in the etiquette of toilet training. She has been making good progress in her foster home and is now confidently using the doggy door, but she will need some patient guidance learning the routines of her new home. Tammy is getting on fine with her doggy foster brother but is not super interested in other pups; she’s more of a people dog. She enjoys getting out and about and is learning not to pull on lead as she seeks the smells and sights of her neighbourhood. Tammy has been good with other dogs she meets at the park, and is generally fine with other polite pooches while on lead. She is not tested with cats, although out on her walks, she has seen and ignored them. However recently she has been reactive to the cat next door who h angs around ‘her’ place. Tammy is a good canine door-bell, letting her carers know when someone drops by, and then providing a friendly greeting to visitors upon introductions.
A devoted companion, Tammy will do well in a variety of household situations where she has the company of her person or people a lot of the time. She could live comfortably with another small dog but would be equally happy having you all to herself. Tammy is fine being left for short periods but, being the sociable girl she is, she’d rather be with the family at home or accompanying you when possible, so a full time working household is probably not for her. If Tammy’s sweet face melts your heart and you fit her bill, she’d love you to submit an adoption application.
