01-03-18 If Only is a 1 year old cross breed who has come to us from truly appalling conditions in Romania. She has witnessed and experienced things no dog should see and she was saved by a Romanian rescue who have very little funds. Thanks to our wonderful supporters we were able to offer help to 10 of these dogs and so now If Only is here to find a home probably for the first time in her life.

If only  has lost all hope in life, she doesnt have a clue what her future holds. She will need time and patience as she is confused that she did snap on the van, but seems to have settled now. If only doesnt walk on a lead, she has had a trauma on the top of her left toe that has healed. She needs experienced owners with all the patience in the world. If only does have her own passport and she really needs a Get Out Of Jail Free card to go with it so she can start her life afresh surrounded with kindness and love.

If Only is a very beautiful but very scared little soul. I went into her kennel to meet her for the first time today and she was visibly uncomfortable having me in there with her and tried to hide in the back away from me. I closed the back of the kennel so she’d have to be in the front with me and then ignored her whilst I sat and made a fuss of the other dogs in there and gave them some treats. If Only couldn’t relax with me in there and paced nervously around the kennel staying away from me. It took 10 minutes before she’d come close enough to sniff me and 5 more minutes until she was calm enough to stop pacing and sit down in the corner away from me.
Any sudden moves or loud noises on my part made her jump and set her back to pacing. I tried throwing treats to her but the movements startled her and she wouldn’t eat them although with the staff who work with her daily she will accept treats.
If Only is perfectly happy with the other dogs in her kennel, she runs in and out of the kennel to the play yard with them happily, and was obviously much happier once I left the kennel and she was back with just dogs again. She is definitely going to need an experienced home with other dogs to make her feel more confident and people who have endless patience and love to give. It’s going to take some time for this little girl to trust people and longer agin before she comes out of her shell entirely.

If only who I nick name Lowri is a beautiful girl who is ever so scared! She came from a bad place and she just can’t forgive any human for what she’s been through. It’s taken me quite a while to teach Lowri on how to walk on a lead but slowly we are starting to get somewhere. She will accept a fuss from myself and is also fine to be picked up. She will need a resident dog in her new home to show her that home life isn’t that bad. She is looking for an experienced home with someone who has had a scared dog before.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.
