Beautiful Pearl certainly caught the public eye when advertised but is still currently up for adoption.
She was found with her brother, Percy (now adopted) very early on, they were a mere couple of weeks old when they were taken to the Romanian vet in a cardboard box. From there the vet placed the puppies in the care of a lovely foster carer until they were old enough to travel to the UK.
Romanian puppies can come across to us under socialised, which seems to be the case with Pearl. She was terrified coming off of transport and would scream in fear when picked up or handled, she also kept her distance on transport night and was very wary of people. We have been working hard to socialise Pearl with other dogs and our volunteers so that she sees them as a positive.
She now is more tolerant of handling but can still be nervous. Her owner will need to take things slow with her and ensure that all handling is positive. She will also be required to attend training and socialisation classes to set her up for success.
Pearl can be affectionate, but also independant and incredibly food oriented, as she is just a baby her attention span is very short and so adopters will need to have a good level of patience with her. She may not want to interact with her adopters for a while, potentially a few days and this will need to be taken into consideration. She has not seen much of the world and is not a typical UK puppy. She will get there in time but needs to go at her own pace.
She is a sweet, clumsy and goofy girl with incredible potential, she just needs the right home ot help her succeed.
