Don’t be put off by her intimidating looks – Morticia, affectionately known as Tish, is the biggest softie you’ll ever meet! After arriving at Pawprints she underwent surgery for cherry eye on both sides, and was the most perfect patient – even though she had to have eyedrops three times a day. She can be a bit aloof at first, but once she gets to know you (and realises you have treats) she soon warms up! Tish walks beautifully on the lead, and takes most distractions in her stride. She can be wary of and fixate on unknown dogs, but moves on easily when asked. She occasionally jumps up when excited, but this can easily be overcome with consistent, kind training. All in all Tish is a joy to be around!
Tish is looking for a pet-free home with plenty of space. She could possibly live with older, dog-savvy children but this will be decided on a case-by-case basis given her size and the fact that we know nothing of her history. Tish’s owners may need to put some time into training her to feel comfortable when walking past other dogs, but she is very responsive to her humans in these situations so this is a positive sign.
