Breed: Male Miniature Fox Terrier X
Wally is a brilliant little guy who is a poster pup for the resilience of dogs. Left in a yard with minimal interaction or activity for most of his life, Wally has taken to foster care like a boss. He loves his human and canine foster friends and is truly thrilled to be enjoying life inside with his pack. He loves to play and do the odd zoomie around the house, but is also a master of snooze, sleeps well through the night and travels calmly in the car. Out and about, Wally has taken beautifully to walking on lead, is polite with passing dogs and happy when he sees small people.
Due to his past circumstances, Wally came into care with no education or house training. However, he is now toilet trained and excited to learn new things. Wally enjoys the company of other dogs and has been looking to his foster buddies for guidance and friendship, and has shown good ability to navigate doggy disagreements. Given his happy spirit, his ability to learn and his need to build confidence after a lifetime of neglect, Wally is a great candidate for developing new skills and a bond with his people through rewards-based training. Due to his past, Wally can be anxious when corrected or excluded, so he needs to be with people who build him up using praise and reward to help him understand what is expected. Helping Wally grow will be as rewarding for his new people as it is for him as he is a quick study, full of gratitude and love.
In foster care, Wally has been okay when left by his carers in the company of other dogs. He can be worried about being locked outside and appreciates company when in the yard. This is understandable, given his history of being left alone. Wally came into care underweight and with some discomfort in his mouth. He has now gained weight and is booked in for a much needed dental.
Wally is an absolute delight and deserves all the good things in life. He is looking for a family who will provide him with patient guidance and new experiences and spend time with him as he learns how to dog. He must have at least one doggy pal, both for company and to access advice on the ways of the world. Wally will do better in a home where people are around more often than not, although he will be happy with canine companionship while his people are out for work or play. In his new home, Wally absolutely must be welcomed inside day and night. Wally will reward his new people with all the gratitude a dog can give. He is a bright, polite and friendly boy, who is keen to leave his past behind him. His good manners, intelligence and loving spirit make him a perfect candidate for a variety of homes.
