MORE INFORMATION: Madeline is a very small Yorkie. She's very sweet but can be nervous initially. She is generally fearful when meeting new people. She was found abandoned at the bottom of a block of flats and was going to be put to sleep because she was biting people out of fear. Since arriving with us over 4 weeks ago she is becoming more and more confident with us, She will need a kind and gentle home who can give her space, time and understanding. In the last 2 weeks, she has begun to be much happier about being handled but is still uncomfortable with basic handling like having her harness put on and off. But she no longer attempts to bite people she is comfortable with.
IDEAL HOME: Due to her nervous nature she would best suit a quieter home where she can feel safe.
FEEDING: she loves her food and at the kennels is fed a raw diet of natural instinct
HEALTH: she has been healthy during her stay at the kennels
LOCATION: At Glendee Rescue,Hertfordshire
TRAINING REQUIREMENTS: Madeline is quite shy initially and can snap if she feels uncomfortable. She will need patience and time in a new home to settle, and an understanding family who appreciate it's a big scary world for a little dog!
