Gorgeous Gaea flew over from Cyprus to her foster home in Swindon, Wiltshire in May. She is a pointer cross, is about 3.5 years old and weights about 20kg. She has a lovely chocolate brown coat with a white spot on her chest ♥️
Gaea has had a tough start to life so she needs time to trust new people, especially men, and build a bond - but once you have her trust, she is extremely loving, playful and cuddly - and the most goofy and adorable dog!
Gaea lives with another dog in her foster home, but she loves to get all the attention so would be better as the only dog. She likes to play with other dogs once she has been properly introduced but does prefer smaller dogs, she can be a bit worried by bigger dogs.
She is fine with cats and could live with a dog-savvy cat with slow introductions.
Gaea would suit an active adult-only family or a family with older children as she does get a bit nervous when in loud environments. She loves to play and play fight with dogs and people and will happily play with balls and most other kinds of toys. Gaea does get nervous in new situations and feels safe when she is on a lead, she walks amazingly on a short lead and never pulls, she will happily walk on a longer lead too in fields where she can stretch her legs.
She is a very active girl and her adopters would need to exercise her for at least an hour or more every day. Gaea loves to do zoomies and has the most goofy run 😆
Gaea has some recall but will need more training around this, she is very food orientated but has shown no aggression at all and is very gentle when taking treats and such.
She travels ok but does still get a little shaky while in the car, this is something her foster family are building up with her so she gets more comfortable.
Gaea doesn't like being left for too long so would suit a family where someone was home for most of the day. Gaea loves to be with her people and would love a family who will snuggle her on the couch and let her sleep close by at night time - she will be the perfect companion to the right family, she is an amazing doggy.
Ideally the right family will live within a reasonable distance from Swindon so that Gaea can get to know them before going to her forever home.
