About Tilly


Beautiful little Tilly is now available for adoption. 

Tilly is a nearly 4 year old Papillon, she's neutered, chipped and will be vaccinated once she's settled into her new home (paid for by us).

She came into rescue due to some pretty severe tummy issues, she's been tested for all kinds of things at various vets and all negative. If Tilly gets even a smidgen of human food, or anything other than her own dog food she will have diarrhoea, and vomiting, it doesn't last for long and clears up after some chicken and rice, but potential adopters need to be aware that this won't be insurable, so if she needs to visit for an anti sickness injection etc or any tests it will not be covered. She is currently on Butterbox food and some chappie wet food as its bland and easy on her tummy. 

Tilly has just the sweetest little personality hidden under quite an anxious little dog, once she knows you she is the perfect little companion, but it will take time to get there with her. Initially she is very unsure, you wouldn't be able to touch her for a good couple of days (it took us 3 days to get a lead on her), she will dart away from you when you walk near her etc. She is SO loyal to her people once you have her trust you, and once you get used to her funny little ways she's an absolute diamond. 

Perfect in the house left alone for 2 to 3 hours, she's clean in the house unless she had a bad tummy over night, and even then will go right by the back door if she can't wake you up. 

Tilly is great with cats, desperate to play with them but doesn't chase, she's very respectful of their boundaries. 

She adores her walks, and will happily go for 2 decent sized walks a day, she trots along beside you and loves meeting other dogs out and about. In the house, she is quite wary of them at first, and would need to meet them outdoors before going into a house with them. 

We think she would probably be better homed with another small to medium dog of a similar age, but would consider someone that is retired, or works from home that isnt out for long each day.

She's so keen to play with dogs outside, but isn't tested off lead, we think she would need at least a few months with her new family before it's even attempted. When getting her lead on, she's so excited but does back away at the same time, if you go to the front door and say walkies she will happily race up to the door though. 

Her favourite place to be is on the table so she can look out the windows, on the back of the sofa or in the windowsill! She sleeps at the foot of the bed at night, when the visiting grandchildren visit the foster she sleeps curled up at the side of them. 

That being said, children make her extremely nervous, so wouldn't be able to live with any loud energetic young kids. Older children that won't attempt to touch her constantly and just let her settle at her own pace would be fine. My children are so dog savvy and totally ignored her until she decided she loved them, so it's definitely possible for her to live with kids that understand. She loves playing with her toys with them, and has some favourites that will go with her. 

She travels really well, and is all round just a fantastic little dog once you get through the anxious start. She's going to make a brilliant best friend for someone understanding of her nerves. When you walk through the door after being out she has a mad dash of zoomies and is so happy to see you!
