Meet Fleur

  • Female, spayed, ~8 months
  • Fully vaccinated
  • Provided regular preventative care for parasite management (fleas, ticks, intestinal worms)

Fleur was born ~September 2, 2021. She has been in our care from about 6 weeks old, having been dumped in a cardboard box with her brother and sister, Molly. She was an overwhelmingly shy pup, and took much longer than others to socialize. She shows no aggression, she “flights” or “freezes” when fearful. She now allows new volunteers of our facility to pet her, and approaches them herself. She continues to show great potential.

Fleur is an incredibly loving, quiet, mixed breed Thai dog. Based off the genetics on our island, we can say she classifies as an Asian spitz mix including: Thai ridgeback, and other spitz’ for this geographical region. These are companion/hunting animals, quiet, athletic/medium build dogs. She has erect ears, a curled tail, and medium hair. At the moment is 16.5kg, as a female we would not expect her to be more than 18-20kg fully grown.

Fleur is warm and happy when you come home, eagerly receives pets and loves forehead/ear scritchy-scratches. She sleeps on the bed but doesn’t like to be held/cuddled/restrained. She has some interest/experience with swimming. Fleur provides a sense of security as she naturally guards the house.

Nervousness: High nervousness to human strangers, sudden movements, etc. Will need significant training to adjust to a non-rural environment, and to you as her new family.

Exposure to Dogs: Raised in a sanctuary environment with a large pack of dogs, of varying ages. Has lots of practice as a foster sibling to younger dogs and puppies.

Exposure to Cats: N/A

Suitability for Children: Due to high nervousness and fear, we currently advise no small children at home. To maintain a calm and stable environment with regards to sound and movement, and respect of personal space for the dog.

Grooming: Minimal maintenance required. Bathing as necessary, nail trims, and dental care. Currently receives bathing and nail trims, minimal to no shedding.

Energy: This is a calm, medium energy dog. She loves to hunt: spiders, flies, geckos, mice, etc.
