About Me

Xena is one of the longer-term residents at Pawprints, and is looking for a very special forever home. She is a really soppy girl with lots of love to give, and enjoys snuffling out treats that have been scattered in the grass. She also does some fantastic zoomies, and loves to throw an old football around for herself. 

Home Requirements

Xena knows some basic behaviours like ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and is very food-oriented, which will be useful for her future training. She is strong on the lead so her new owner will need to be able to handle her, but for the most part she walks quite nicely and really enjoys a good sniff. She is very interested in wildlife (particularly those pesky squirrels), so her human will need to keep their wits about them in order to avoid being taken on a wild ride!

Due to her history she is extremely wary of men, and would ideally like to live in a female-only home. She is very reactive to strangers entering her ‘territory’, be that a garden, house or even her personal space when out on a walk, so she will need a quiet home with few visitors. Xena can also become over-excited sometimes, so her owner will need to be prepared to help her calm down in these situations. 

Whoever takes Xena on will need to be dedicated to helping her feel safe and teaching her how to navigate the world, but we guarantee it will be worth the effort – this big girl has an even bigger heart.
