About Nashy – on hold
All About Me and My Unique Personality: Nashy is a little pocket rocket full of love. She’s only been with us a short time but has clawed her was into the family dynamic quickly.
She was quite unsure and timid at first, but once she realised she was here to stay and a routine was established her character began to shine through. She happily plays and plays and plays and plays with our resident pup (10 month old cattle dog) until he can’t walk anymore and Nash is still raring to go. If she isn’t playing she is longingly sitting at the back door wanting to be near her humans or part of anything that’s going on.
She doesn’t guzzle her food, more nibbles throughout the day and for this she can be a spot protective of it... other than that she knows basic commands and is beginning to respond to her name.
My Ideal Home: Nashy will need a home where she is central to the going ons in the house hold and included. She will need a lot of love, encouragement, exercise and stimulation.
I don’t believe she has a bad or violent bone in her body and would benefit from having a four legged friend in the yard with her. She does not seem to have any issue making friends at the park, big or small dogs.
She does have quite a ‘boing’ on her but doesn’t jump at you or attempt to jump fences.
She is responding to training very well.
Nashy enjoys the beach, the water and chasing the hose. She enjoys bush walks and runs and sprinting and interacting with other dogs so she’d like to go to a home where her activities would be varied.
What is Known About My Background: I believe she was surrendered at the RSPCA and was already desexed. It unfortunate she wasn’t microchipped so we don’t know her name which has made it hard to make her feel at home but despite whatever she’s encountered in her past she’s a little trooper, and is having a ball at our house at the moment!
How Do I Interact with Kids, Dogs, Cats and Other Pets: She’s happy with cats, and doesn’t seem to be interested in our chickens (fenced).
She hasn’t met any kids yet, only in passing on walks and she has been off lead... I would just advice that she is quite high energy but it does settle as she gets more comfortable.
