Meet Hattie, sister of Pamela.
Hattie was in a tiny kennel with 8 other dogs, tiny prison cell in a shelter in Crete
Hattie is a very sweet little lady, she is a little shy soon, she is enjoying her freedom and experiencing the big bad world, she has missed out on her important months and so is adapting well in foster but will need a family to appreciate she has missed out on so much and will need a little time to adapt. A family will need to be prepared to help Hattie continue to adapt, exposure, guidance and give her time to become the dog she wants to be.
Hattie is fully vaccinated but will need neutering within 3 months of adoption.
Hattie has only known life in a shelter, a kennel, no walks etc. She will need a family who will be prepared to introduce her to life in the UK and her new surroundings - including maintaining her training, toilet, walking, getting used to noises and living in a home.
With the right boundaries and guidance she will all easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and consistent work required.
Our adoption process is usually completed quickly so if you are interested in adopting her please make sure you are free of commitments before applying.

Dog's Name: Hattie
5 th August 2022
Where does Hattie sleep at night?
Hattie has slept with my other dogs since she arrived
How is Hattie with current pets?
Hattie loves my dogs and gets a lot of confidence from them. She’s met the cat, the first time she barked and since then is wary of her but hasn’t wanted to chase her. I think she would chase if the cat ran so if rehomed with cats it would need to be dog savvy.
She’s intrigued by the chickens but doesn’t want to eat them!
Is Hattie clean indoors?
Hattie hasn’t had any accidents since arriving, which is absolutely amazing seeing as she hasn’t spent time in a house before coming into foster
Can Hattie be left alone?
Hattie is fine being left, she just curls up with my dogs
Is Hattie out on walks?
Hattie has come a long way in just a week. Day 1 she wouldn’t leave the drive but she is now walking out confidently following my dogs.
How does Hattie walk on the lead?
Hattie walks on a lead and harness fine, she does pull a bit and would need some loose lead training.
Has Hattie met other dogs?
Hattie has met lots of dogs as I do doggy day care. She is very submissive and just wants to be their friend.
She is nervous out on walks when meeting other dogs and people and will need lots of socialising.
Have you noticed if Hattie is afraid of any particular things?
Although Hattie has come a long way in just one week she is still very frightened of lots of things. She doesn’t like sudden movements or loud noises but is getting braver every day.
Any other useful information?
Hattie was very shut down when she arrived and wouldn’t even look at us on the first day, but very slowly she has started to come out of her shell and the inner puppy is starting to emerge. She is now very happy being touched all over and will actually walk over to you for a stroke.
Hattie’s ideal home:
Hattie’s ideal home would be a home with another dog to show her the ropes. I don’t think she would be comfortable with small children so would say a home with teenage children would be fine.
She will need lots of love and patience to continue building her confidence so she learns that the world isn’t such a bad place.
