✅Dog savvy cats
Eshi is the living definition of resilient. While living as a stray on the streets of Lebanon, Eshi was shot in the face. This has left her completely blind.
Despite this, one of Eshi’s favourite things is people. She loves to be at the door ready to greet her foster with circling and expressions of affection. She has a lot of love to give. She will occasionally “hug” a person when meeting them but typically responds to “off”. She likes to give cuddles and kisses.
Eshi still has a lot of puppy in her and loves to play and chew. She will need lots of sturdy toys. When she is comfortable with her surroundings outside, she will run and play.
Eshi is dog friendly but meeting new dogs must happen at her pace. She will admit a small growl or mini snarl when she is surprised by certain animals. Her owner should be savvy in dog body language, or willing to learn, so that all new dog meetings can be safe and fun for Eshi.
Eshi and her foster are working on her crate training. The crate is open and accessible and she is quiet when she is coaxed to go in. She will not choose to spend time in her crate & prefers to be left loose inside the house.
Eshi likes to steal shoes, any and all types. She’s a flat and a heel girl. She will trade the shoe for a chew toy.
Eshi walks well with a harness. She likes to walk slowly when initially in an environment so as to familiarize herself with her surroundings. She has a great sense of smell and will try to chase squirrels and other small animals.
Eshi needs a home in which she will be able to play. She loves being around other animals and a dog playmate would be great for her. If not, then active humans that want to play A LOT and who are home more often than not. Since Eshi is blind, she needs a house that is not going to undergo any significant changes structurally or furniture positioning wise. A screen door is recommended for the front or a gate so she doesn’t dash out the front door. We also suggest that her adopters get a GPS tracker for her collar as she would have an exceptionally hard time if she were to escape.
