Meika is a sweet natured, happy and gentle girl. She loves her toys, treats and hanging out by your side getting pats. On walks, she is gentle and doesn't pull on the lead, quite happy to stroll along beside you and check things out, stopping every now and then to sniff things and nibble on a blade of grass or two.
Meika has not seen much of the world in her short life so far, so can be a little shy and timid when in new situations. She will need an experienced owner who can gently and kindly introduce her to the big wide world, show her that it isn't a scary place and take her on adventures. She will need guidance and proper introductions when it comes to meeting other dogs, stock, cats etc. She does show some interest in chickens but can be redirected. She gets on well with most of the dogs she meets, but will need instruction on proper doggy manners. Meika has had experience with children.
Meika would love to have a caring home where she is truly valued, with walks every day, time to explore the local parks and streets, games and fun at home, and lots of cuddles.
As with all Pound Hounds, Meika must be allowed access to inside the home, so she can really be a part of the family.
