Tiny Tilly was brought into our care after her previous owners could no longer look after her. She can be a little nervous of people at first but after positive introductions she will soon approach you for love and attention.
Being as small as Tilly, you can appreciate the world must seem like a giant, scary place at times. Because of this, she will need reassurance and a safe place to go when things are a little too overwhelming for her – usually retreating to your side where she feels closest to you.
Tilly would like to live in an adult household, where she is respected and treated like any other sized dog. Having someone around for the majority of the day at first would be beneficial to help her settle in and form a bond with her new owners, before leaving for short periods of time (max 4 hours).
She is a very sweet girl and walks well with a lot of our other dogs at the centre. She hasn’t shown any interest in toys and games whilst being with us, instead she will choose to curl up on your lap for a cuddle.
