If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

13-12-2020 Glitter is a very pretty girl who has come to us from Romania.  She is very nervous when approached and will run off but if you sit on the floor in her kennel she will approach you for a sniff.  She doesn't walk on a lead and will need house training and she will learn these best in a home that has at least one other dog who she can watch and start to copy.  Glitter needs an adult only home with owners who have the time and patience to show her she is finally safe and loved.  Glitter is missing a toe on her back paw and although she can appear to limp she runs, plays and jumps normally.  Glitter has a passport.

This week I've had the pleasure of working with Glitter for the first time. When I first introduced myself to her she was very stand offish and just barked at me in the hope I would go away. After sitting in the kennel for a couple of minutes she soon realised I wasn't a threat, and she came right up to me and gave me a big sniff ... and that's where it all began. Fast forward 4 days, she now gets very excited to see me and wags her tail rapidly, and will actually ask me for a scratch behind her ear!
She is still a frightened girl and will flinch at any sudden movements or loud noises, and this is something her new owners will need to understand clearly. Even though she's progressing very well here, she may regress when she gets into a home as it will all be completely new for her. This is why we're looking for experienced owners with a kind resident dog, who will go slow with her, respect her boundaries, and encourage her lightly.

It's an absolute delight to see the immense progress that Glitter's made since she first came to the rescue. She still has a long way to go when it comes to behaving calmly and being comfortable around people, but her improvements so far have been really encouraging.
She usually spends most of her time in the back of the kennel hiding away but will sometimes approach people she's more comfortable with to give their hands a sniff. She was visibly nervous but didn't panic or run away as I handled her to put on her harness, and began wagging her tail in excitement as we walked towards the gate.
I haven't spent much time with Glitter before today and she seemed a bit nervous of walking beside me, and would often huddle up besides Joyce who has spent more time working with her lately. She clearly found comfort in her company.
She can be a bit jumpy on walks and was put off by today's strong winds, but in a calm environment she's quite easy to handle, and will allow you to pet and pick her up.
She will definitely need a very experienced owner preferably who already has a larger male dog to keep her company and much needed comfort.

Glitter continues to progress but is still a scared girl.  She let's me stroke but will not take a treat from me. She is living in a big pack of male and female big and small dogs. If you have had collies before, you will understand when I say, at first she would rush up to some of them, then rush just as fast away, a couple of times she would try to give them a warning nip.
Now she has settled this has stopped, but she would probably do this in a new home.
She does need another dog, as she is very fearful of humans. Glitter also needs an adult only home, as she also rushed at my adult son out of fear, but has been fine with me. There
is no "quick fix" for this sweet girl, she needs time and patience.

Glitter is still a nervous girl, but is now taking treats, following me around more.  She gets very excited at dinner time and jumps round me while I'm getting it ready. She likes to have a safe area, here it's under a table. She has managed to be brave enough to come out and check out my daughter and son's girlfriend,  whenever they visit. So all steps in the right direction.

Sweet Glitter is still a nervous girl, but now she comes up to me, and now loves a fuss.
She has even braved sitting on the sofa with me, but this is only now and again.
Glitter does show with time she is making progress.
She is a girl that needs a very special home, with someone who has lots of patience.... But the rewards will be amazing in time.

Glitter is getting much braver. But doesn't seem to be keen on men and has nipped one of my adult sons a couple of times on the back of his leg when he visited.  She also barks at my other adult son that she see's every day but with me she is fine and in the last couple of weeks she has become my best friend really enjoying cuddles and laying next to me. She does need an experienced home.

Glitter still isn't a fan of men and still very vocal when one walks in. She has started to play a lot more with toys. She will walk on a lead (when it suits her) but it does have to be quiet, she's probably not going to cope with really long hikes, due to her damaged paw. She is very much a "jekyll and Hyde" one day will take treats, wants lots of fuss, then another will want to hide from you. But when she does want a fuss, she really loves it. She is such a sweet girl.

Glitter needs a very special home. A single female with either dogs/dog bigger than her or as an only dog. You need to have experience of very nervous dogs, that while settling may nip with fear. Glitter doesn't like visitors and would need to be kept in a separate room while any visitors were present. I've started walking her in slightly more busy areas, she has been coping well but does still have her moments of panic, so I always have 2 leads on her. With me she comes up for cuddles and a good chin rub. But does still have days on wanting to hide away from me. Its heartbreaking to think what she has been through in her past to make her so scared and not wanting to trust humans.

Well it's coming up for Glitter's favourite time of the year, fly season she loves chasing , jumping and sometimes catching them. No fly is safe with Glitter around lol, she is very quick.
