This beautiful black short coated girl is Scarla who is 4 years old and spayed.
Scarla loves people and has met children with who she is fine but she is very boisterous so would probably be better in a home with older children.
She is fine with other dogs but hates cats with a passion and lives in an area where there are lots of cats which makes her bark and pull on the lead which stresses her owner.
When our volunteers arrived, Scarla greeted them with a bark initially but then a very waggy tail and lots of licks. She soon relaxed and caused no problems.
They took Scarla for a walk and she is obviously very alert to the cats that live in the area which caused her to pull on the lead and bark. Our volunteers thought she was very nervous of the cats. Once they got the the fields nearby, Scarla was a different dog, she just wanted to sniff and explore. She walked lovely to heel until they approached the houses where the cats were.
The owner is very anxious because of Scarla's behaviour and we think this is being transferred to Scarla making her worse.
So Scarla hates cats and also doesn't like travelling in the car. She happily jumps in the car but as soon as the engine starts she begins whining very loudly and doesn't stop until the engine stops!!
Our volunteers think Scarla's problem is more down to her owner's nervous disposition and in confident experienced hands she will blossom and calm down.
Scarla is also being left for long hours on her own which is not helping the situation.
We believe that the sooner Scarla moves into a new home, the better for both her and her current owner.
