7 years, Female, Small Mixed Breed (Jack Russell size)
Iris is a very sweet little girl with a lot of love to give. She is more of a cuddler than a bouncy crazy dog and when she knows you she can be quite affectionate, she came off of the transport fairly upbeat and trotted over to us not long after this.
She's a submissive at times so will suit a family with kids over the age of 13 that prefer a dog to chill out with them.
She can play well with other dogs but she can be protective over her food. She has come from a very difficult background and being a little dog in a shelter is tough - bigger dogs will always muscle the smaller dogs out of the way when it comes to feeding time. Iris can mix with dogs in future and go on walks with other dogs but she cannot live with one.
She is not currently walking on a lead but staff will show you how to do this for when she is ready.
