Sweet Cinders and her siblings were thrown away onto the streets, then scooped up and thrown into a prison cell in a shelter. Poor dogs did not stand any chance of happiness until we agreed to take them.
They moved to a better kennels and prepared for travel. Now arrived safe and well I the UK and learning the ropes in foster ready to find their forever homes.
Cinders has spent a little time in foster, but is still in need of continued training. So her new family will need to be prepared for the consistent work of introducing a rescue dog to domestic life in the UK - basic training, toileting, walking on and off lead, getting used to noises and living in a home.
The decision to adopt a rescue dog should not be taken lightly - we have had dogs returned as people have not been fully prepared for the consistent work that maybe needed. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Cinders will adapt well to her new UK life.
A reminder - Chimney Farm will be closing by end of 2023 so all adopters need to be aware there will be no rescue back up after November 1st. However, we would like to assure new adoptive families that our rehoming team will be available for advice during the early months of their dog's settling-in period.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Cinders
Where does Cinders sleep at night?
In her bed downstairs in the kitchen or at the foot of the.bed. She settles well at night and sleeps until about 7am now when she needs a wee. She is clean over night now but would recommend leaving puppy pads out overnight at any new home for a couple of nights until she settles.
How is Cinders with current pets?
Good. She fitted in with our current dogs straight away and there weren’t issues. She does stand up for herself however and if there is a toy she wants then she will be a bit bossy about it. She plays with others or by herself and will need either another dog to play with or lots of stimultion. She loves to run. She is very curious about the cat so if there is cat in the house, so a cat would need to be a brave cat to deal with her enthusiasm. She undertands No! And is very quick to learn. She is very food orientated and loves the ham from the fridge.
Is Cinders clean indoors?
We had a few accidents at first but she is now clean indoors. She does need to go out very often until her bladder size matures.. We have had no poos inside, she always goes into the garden but when she is left too long or is excited then we have had a few accidents initially. Her new owners will need to be understand that they may get a few accidents at first u tol she learns the new layout and routines. They will need to put some effort into taking her in and out regularly with lots of praise when she goes in the garden.
Can Cinders be left alone?
Yes. She has been left alone for up to 2 hours and just settled down with our other dogs. She sleeps alone at night.
How is Cinders out on walks?
She loves her walks. She goes out twice a day and would love an active house hold. She is a little erratic on the lead still and initially tried to walk between our legs as she was a little unsure but once out of the house she will walk and walk. She does Zoomies in the garden and sometimes up and down the stairs.
How does Cinders walk on the lead?
She is a bit wavery but learning fast. She doesn’t pull at all. She tends to stay with our other dogs when out.
Has Cinders met with other dogs?
Yes. She is good with them when out. She wants to play and is not aggressive towards them at all.
How is Cinders with humans?
Cinders is very people friendly. She says hello with enthusiasm and loves to be petted and cuddled. She is super cuddly and loves her people. She is always so pleased to see you.
Have you noticed if Cinders is afraid of any particular things?
Not really. She is a confident, enthusiastic pup who loves life. She has the sweetest nature and when she gets excited or pleased to see you she let's out these little squeaks. She was initially a bit afraid of the car or leaving the house but she is fine now.
Any other useful information?
Cinders is a very sweet natured dog, who is full of fun and excitement. She loves to play and every day is a joy to her.
