About me

Hi everyone, my name's Tizzy! I arrived at the centre after being found as a stray so nothing is known about my background. I'd like a new home with owners who have Terrier experience and live in a quiet area. I get worried meeting new people so the team have taught me how to wear a muzzle so I can have introductions and build my confidence with new humans safely. My friends here describe me as energetic, excitable, fun and affectionate - they say I'd suit new owners with an active lifestyle as I love being on the go (my nickname is Busy Tizzy!). I haven't been socialised with other animals so I will need to be the only pet in the home, however I have been learning to walk nicely with other dogs when out and about as part of my training plan - something I'd like my new owners to continue in my new home. The team say I'm lovely to do training with - I love my food so much and will do anything for a tasty treat! I would prefer an adult only home but older children would be considered if the right home came along. I prefer my own space and can get a bit worried of other dogs that are boucy around me, so I am looking for a home where I will be the only pet and walkies in quieter spots.
