Tess is a shy girl looking for a quiet home to settle in and find her feet. She is large but lacking in confidence and social skills, so owners need to give her a confidence boost. She finds new faces and places worrying, so things need to be taken slowly. She has limited doggy social skills and finds some worrying, so some gentle socialisation is necessary but at her pace. She may need to be the only dog at home. Once she does know you she is a really bouncy dog who can get quite over excited and giddy, which does need to be managed in her new home.
Type of home needed
As she has quite a timid nature, Tess is looking for an adult only home with no visiting youngsters. She might take a while to settle as she has led such a sheltered life. Tess needs to learn that people are her friends and the source of all things nice. She is a big girl and can be OTT at timesand also very strong on lead, so owners need advice on how to manage this in her new home. With some patience and kindness she will blossom.
