Meisie loves human company and gets very lonely when left on her own for big parts of the day as she was used to living with a retired owner. She happily shared her home with another little dog and a cat for many years. She is however a rather anxious little dog and gets very nervous around strange dogs as she was once attacked by a much bigger dog and quite badly mauled. She is 15 yrs old, so not as active as she used to be, but still quite sprightly and loves her daily walks. She is very obedient, but as her hearing is failing she responds to hand gestures accompanied by words and is easily startled if approached from behind because she simply has not heard you approach. Meisie is sensitive to people’s moods and attitudes and picks up very quickly by whom she is loved and who does not particularly care for her, but nevertheless tolerates her. She is also quite nervous of little children. She is not a barker or yapper and too deaf to be much of a watchdog, but she is a devoted pet. She is definitely an ‘inside’ dog and likes to sit on her favourite human’s lap or lie next to you on a couch, but doesn’t sleep on our bed. She has free access in an out of the house through a doggy-flap in the door.

She is sterilised, vaccinated, dewormed.  She is housetrained & walks well on a leash. She is fearful of storms.
