SHEA ( Cyprus)
Meet SHEA, a sweet female pointer cross, approx. 2 year old. She is a slim medium-sized dog, approx. 13 kg .
Shea is a friendly but very shy dog who needs an affectionate home , where she will be cared for, and thrive.
She is well-mannered and her nervousness is not redirected into reactivity and/or aggression. She did not show any concerning behaviour during handling, visits to the vet, around cats and/or around other dogs.
Most likely that her fearful behavior is a result of a bad treatment in a past , she may require patience and understanding to help her overcome her fears.
Shea loves people and needs human love . Once she feels comfortable and secure , she becomes a loving dog who enjoys cuddles like nothing else.
In open spaces and natural settings, she becomes more confident and reverts to her basic hunting dog insticts, sniffing and tracking. She would benefit from a home with access to the outdoors and possibly one with a calm, confident resident dog to guide her.
Dogs like Shea struggle in shelter environments because they are often overwhelmend by the noise, smells and constant movement around them.
Given her sensitive nature, Shea needs a quiet home , low-stress environment, with regular supervised access to the outdoors and nature, in order to feel safe and secure . With the right care and attention, this sweet dog has the potential to overcome her fears and blossom into a confident and happy companion.
