My name is Lunar - please adopt me

Lunar is being rehomed to a change in her owner’s circumstances, which has resulted in Lunar being left home alone most days for several hours while the owner is at work. Although her owner has made arrangements for
Lunar to be let out briefly for toilet breaks while he is working, he feels it is in Lunar’s best interest to be rehomed somewhere that she will not be left alone for lengthy periods.

Lunar seems to have a good relationship with her owner and they appeared comfortable in each others company.
When our volunteers initially attended Lunar was wary of them, barked at them and circled round at close quarters. Lunar settled down after a few minutes and was calm and friendly towards our volunteers for most of the
visit. However, she did bark repeatedly at one of our volunteers at a couple of points later in the visit. The first time was after our volunteer had been rubbing her stomach and stopped, and she also barked at him again when he got out of his chair to walk across the room.

When Lunar was barking at our volunteer she went right up to him and did not back away. Our volunteers felt that Lunar’s behaviour might worry some potential adopters who have only had experience with placid dogs and that she would be best rehomed with someone who is calm and confident when dealing with such behaviour.

Lunar’s owner reports that she stays calm towards regular visitors to the house once she gets to knows them. Lunar’s reaction to new visitors is something any new owner would need to be aware of, work on and appropriately supervise.

Lunar’s owner reports that she is not possessive of her food or toys with him, but thinks that she would be with other people until she had got to know them and they had gained her trust.

During the visit Lunar walked fairly well on lead for the most part, but she did pull strongly on the lead when other dogs were approaching.

Lunar’s owner had her off lead for part of the walk and she was happy chasing her ball and bringing it back to him. During the walk, Lunar’s owner was able to call her back to him and get her back on the lead when he wanted to do so. He put her lead when other dogs were approaching.

Lunar’s owner reports that she does not like strangers putting their hand down towards her unexpectedly on walks and that she growled and showed her teeth on a recent occasion when a stranger did this to her.

Lunar will not be rehomed to a home where there are children.

Lunar has an ongoing medical condition which is being successfully managed at present by the use of supplements in her daily meals. The rescue will provide more information about this to anyone expressing an interest in rehoming Lunar.
