Cleo is a bitch that was rescued off the streets in September last year. She had clearly already had a litter of pups before. I was approached to foster her by the rescuer and she is still with me after 4 months. She was sterilized but has not yet been vaccinated – this will be done before homing. She was clearly beaten before and is apprehensive towards a broom, vacuum cleaner, mop and even hose pipe. She is definitely less than 2 years old, extremely affectionate, timid and playful but not destructive. She has found comfort in my one placid male dog and follows his lead in everything. She used to collect all the shoes in the house and drag it onto the couch or wherever she slept, but not when she sleeps on the bed with me. However, when I’m out, she collects clothes, shoes, her bed, even my handbag and drags it all outside. She doesn’t chew anything up. She is extremely alert and bright and was even house trained when she arrived.  She walks well on a leash.
