Other Notes

Tess can live with children from sixteen years of age and upwards providing they are used to being around dogs. Due to her vocal nature she wouldn't be suitable to live in a flat. It is not yet known how she copes being left home alone so she will need an owner who is able to be around during the day. Tess has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and is up to date with flea & worm treatment. She has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed.
