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.

30-07-2022 Mellow is a very scared girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She hasn't had the best start in life so we want to make sure the rest of it is full of love, kindness and fun.  Mellow will need at least one other dog in her new home to help her confidence with people. 
Mellow has never been in a home so this is going to be completely overwhelming at first and she will need adopters with endless time and patience to help her learn about home life.  She will have no idea about house training and at first the garden may be as scary and the inside of the home so getting in the garden and then back in the home could take time.  She will also have no idea about lead walking and this is something else her adopters will need to work on once they have gained her trust.  They will need to start practising in the garden when she is ready and then progress outside in quiet areas and the importance of double leading Mellow cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with adopters who really understand her needs Mellow will slowly start to flourish but with gentle words of praise and encouragement she will get there.

This lovely lady got moved to my section last week so I could work with her on her fear of humans. She is still a very scared girl who is difficult to pick up as she is so flighty. She has not tried to bite me, but I do feel as though she may have the potential to if pushed too far or handled incorrectly. Mellow needs a lot of calmness and patience, and then when you’ve got her in your arms she does settle.
I managed to give her fringe a little trim today and just look at her beautiful eyes. She was frightened having it done but she was such a good girl and didn’t fight us. Even though she’s still scared of me, she is starting to show a playful side with her kennel friends which is really nice.
Mellow is still a young girl so it’s lovey to see her inner puppy coming out as she probably didn’t get a chance to explore that side of herself when she was younger. I’ll continue to work with her and prove to her that she doesn’t need to be scared of us humans, and I’ll keep you all updated on how she does.

So Mellow has made a lot of progress over the last month. She is still a nervous and timid girl, but she is nowhere near as bad as she was. Her biggest fear was being picked up - and while she does still run away when I approach her, I can now scoop her up with almost no fuss. This has been the biggest improvement in her and I have to say I am really proud of her. She’s also found a lot more inner confidence and is now discovering the fun side of life. She definitely has a cheeky side to her which is slowly starting to emerge, but she’s not fully there yet. When I sit on the floor in her kennel and wiggle my fingers at her, she will come over to me and give me little kisses and wag her little stump (she doesn’t have a tail), and I can tell she’s thinking about playing with me.
Mellow has gotten on well with all dogs since she arrived but can be extremely submissive. When she meets new dogs at first, she’ll army crawl around the floor and show her tummy as soon as they show interest in her. Because of this, I’d really love to find her a home with a very sweet and kind resident dog who will be her best friend and let her snuggle with them if she wants to.
Mellow enjoys yummy food, watching me like a hawk, and running around in my big play yard. I just know she’s going to absolutely love home life once she’s settled - but it may take her a while. Her new owners will need to be very patient and understanding, and work with her through her fears and timidness. Time, love and kindness is all this beautiful little lady needs to thrive .. and no expectations. She’s never been inside a home before so she will be overwhelmed at first, but I’m confident she will get there. Please give her a chance. 

 

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
