Sweet Jasmine 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.
Jasmine 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, Jasmine 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: Jasmine
Date of arrival: 5th October 2023
Where does Jasmine sleep at night?
Jasmine sleeps in her bed next to our bed. She is good as gold and sleeps right through. She wakes up when my alarm goes off…this morning it was 6:30am. She goes straight out in the garden for a wee and a poo.
How is Jasmine with current pets?
We have 3 small female dogs, and she gets on well with all of them. She is very respectful and leaves them alone (they are all a bit grumpy when a foster dog first arrives). We also have Brian the cat who Jasmine likes to sniff but then ignores. She has shown an interest in the chickens, and I think she would like to “play” with them if given the chance 😊
Is Jasmine clean indoors?
We are nearly there and just having the odd wee accident. She uses the garden well and will toilet on her walk.
Can Jasmine be left alone?
Jasmine has been left for up to 2 hours with our dogs. She doesn’t mind at all but does continue to play with whatever she can find. We have puppy proofed the room and given her plenty of toys, so it hasn’t been an issue.
Is Jasmine out on walks?
Yes, she loves her walks. She is having 2-3 walks a day of about 30 minutes.
How does Jasmine walk on the lead?
Jasmine is getting used to the lead and is doing well. She walks nicely most of the time, but she can get a little over excited and try to run. When she has had enough, she just sits down and needs a little encouragement to get going again 😊.
Has Jasmine met other dogs?
Jasmine has met lots of other dogs out on walks. She is a little shy at first but after a little sniff, she is quite happy. She has shown no aggression.
How is Jasmine with human?
Jasmine is a very sweet and cheeky little girl. She LOVES people and wants everyone she meets to give her a fuss. She can be a little bit jumpy and this needs to be managed. She loves a snuggle and gives the best kisses but she is not needy. Her favourite people are my two boys who are aged 12 and 15 - they adore her as she is so affectionate.
Have you noticed if Jasmine is afraid of anything particular thing? Jasmine is doing well and is not fazed by household noise or my boisterous boys. In fact, she enjoys the crazy, busy house. She is a bit nervous of traffic, but she just needs to get used to this.
Any other useful information.
Jasmine loves her food and is a hungry little girlie. We are giving her 3 meals a day which she is hoovering up. She also enjoys chewing on a hoof or antler.
Jasmine is a typical puppy and will grab anything she can…the TV remote controls are a particular favourite…and laundry!!! She will need plenty of toys to keep her busy!
Jasmine is very lively and intelligent. She will need lots of exercise and mental stimulation and a family that have the time to provide this. She is very food motivated and this will make training easier.
I think Jasmine would love to live with another dog as I think she would like to play. Equally she could live as an only dog if she had a family who would play with her and have lots of doggy playdates. I think she could live with a bold cat.
Jasmine is a sweet, funny, adorable little girl, and we love her to bits. We are so excited for her to find a family to call her own who will shower her with all the love she deserves.
Good luck, gorgeous Jasmine xx
