** Selkie’s Story **

Selkie, a captivating Corgi cross Kelpie, has been under the loving care of our rescue organization for quite some time. During her stay in foster care, Selkie has truly flourished, blossoming into a remarkable companion. Now, she is eagerly awaiting her forever home, where she can share her abundance of love and loyalty.

Selkie’s personality is a beautiful blend of sweetness and resilience. Her time in foster care has allowed her to overcome past challenges and reveal her true potential. While initially reserved, Selkie now radiates warmth and affection.  She is also now very house trained and a devoted companion who forms deep and lasting bonds with her humans and craves a peaceful and serene environment where she can fully embrace her true nature.

— Perfect Home —

Selkie’s ideal home would be one that understands and respects her need for tranquility. She is not suited to living with young children, as their energy levels and unpredictability might overwhelm her. Instead, a peaceful home with adults or older, considerate teenagers who can provide her with a calm environment would be the perfect fit.

\\\ Exercise and Training ///

As a Corgi cross Kelpie, Selkie possesses an intelligent and active mind. Engaging in activities such as daily walks, interactive playtime, and puzzle toys will keep her happy, healthy, and mentally sharp. Obedience training, based on positive reinforcement methods, will help strengthen the bond between Selkie and her new family. We believe an active outdoor lifestyle to burn some of her energy whilst challenging her mentally when learning how to react in new situations is the key for Selkie to thrive allow her to rest, relax, and recharge at home on the couch in her downtime.

— Compatibility with Other Pets —

Selkie is a very funny doggo who prefers all the attention, so would do great in a single-fur child home. That is not to say that she doesn’t absolutely love to say hi at the dog park, especially to well-mannered doggos who know how to give her personal space, as she is learning calmer greetings herself too!

Selkie is ready to embark on a new chapter of her life filled with love and understanding. If you believe you can provide her with the peaceful and quiet home environment she craves, please consider opening your heart to this extraordinary dog. With your patience and care, Selkie will blossom into an incredible companion, offering unwavering devotion and endless love.
