Trevelli - 12 month Pointer x Podenco mix girly in foster in family home in Somerset with a 8 year old child, 2 cats and 2 dogs.
This lovely girl has now been in our care nearly 3 weeks so would like to give a more detailed update to help find her forever home.
Trevelli was rescued from a pound in Spain last summer and has been in boarding ever since living outside with multiple dogs.
So here we go good and bad - Trevelli has a very lovely nature and temperament, she loves people and children. When she first arrived in her foster home for the first few days she sent everyone nearly flying as she would get so excited she would jump up to greet everyone, the same happened down at the school gates a lot of the children who said hello to her went school with muddy paws prints on them that day. This has much improved under her foster homes careful guidance.

Playing fetch with a friend
House training was none existence if she wanted to go the toilet she would, she is now fully house trained.
The cats were a bit of a work in progress but she is much better with them now.
With the other dogs she gets on well but can clash with the young male over toys its all hand bags at dawn stuff she has a toy he wants it and tries to take it off her or stands staring at her, she is not a nasty dog a very submissive in lots of ways she will lick all around the dogs mouth very much like a puppy still -

Off lead - the only time she has been off lead is in secure field above and recently on a walk on a farm land with her mummy's friend and her dog which unfortunately went a bit wrong - she was doing really playing with the other dogs etc until 10 foot in front of them 5 deer appeared and took off with the dogs in hot pursuit - Trevelli did not see them to begin with but saw the other dogs give chase so she followed, in her defence she was one of the first ones back but not enough information to give people an adequate assessment of her off lead obviously we are cautious because of her mix so more work to be done here and will update, but what we will say is she is a very devoted and loyal dog to her owners and will follow you around and likes to be with you but that is the only information we can give you at the moment but will be update over the next week.
On the lead walking she did not have a clue and would pull and zig zag so again her foster home has worked on this and she is nearly normal, walking around the lanes etc Trevelli would shy away from the cars etc and was very nervous this is being worked on and improvement a lot over the past few weeks.
With other dogs she is super friendly but she is high energy so will get on a lot of dogs nerves - but if they love to play great - here are a few videos of her with other dogs.
With the puppies and other dogs
Trevelli has had a lot of work imput and work from her foster family and will continue to do so, she is an active dog which will require an active home, once we can get her recall sorted out so she can burn more of energy off she will improve too - she is no couch potato and would love an out doorsy home - we feel she would suit an experienced home - she is a work in progress but the rewards will be great - she has some a lovely nature and character, she is a very loving dog and will bond closely with whoever become her forever family - she would suit an agility home or cani cross this she would love.
Trevelli has been spayed, vaccinated and blood tested, she has a passport - if you feel you are the right home for this lovely girl then please contact us for our questionnaire at [email protected]
