Welcome May who has recently arrived from Crete and is now settling in to her foster home in the UK.
May was an unlucky girlie left in a Crete shelter without proper care or hope for a happy future. Until she got her lucky ticket to the UK.
May is the sweetest most affectionate little happy lady, very grateful for her chance. She has been clean indoors loves her walks and other dogs.
She is fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
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 hard work that can be needed. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, May will adapt well. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of consistent work.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: May
Where does May sleep?
The first night May slept in a bed next to ours but the second slept on our bed for cuddles. We have encouraged her sleep in a bed on the floor and she has remained there throughout the night sleeping soundly. May is clean throughout the night.
How is May with other dogs/animals?
May is submissive with other dogs but when she sees they are not a threat she enjoys a play. If a dog shows any dominant behaviour she cowers and will avoid them.
May has not shown any interest in cats we have passed on the street.
Is May clean indoors?
May has been clean since day one.
Can May be left alone?
May has been left alone for short periods up to 20 minutes. She paces for a short while but does not bark and has not been destructive. She is incredibly happy when you return and greets you with love and kisses.
How is May out on walks?
May enjoys her walks and there have been no issues with other dogs she has met. May is brilliant off lead and has great recall. She does not stray too far from us and comes back to check we are still following her.
How does May walk on the lead?
May is keen to go on her walks and can be a little strong due to her enthusiasm but not enough to pull an adult over.
Has May met with other dogs?
May lives with three smaller dogs in her foster home. Her foster sisters can be little terrors and initially May was a little worried about them and kept away. She has now bonded well with two of them and will sleep with them and play (the other foster dog is in a sulk and avoiding her). May has also met a large American Staffie type dog and a Jack Russell on a number of occasions and although cautious to start with, once she relaxed, she appeared to enjoy their company.
How is May with humans?
May LOVES humans and wants to spend time with you. She loves cuddles and play. She is equally fond of humans of any gender, but less confident around little people. I would recommend that she isn’t rehomed with small children but would be fine with teenagers.
Have you noticed that May is afraid of any particular things?
May generally approaches most things with caution but soon gains confidence. She adores human companionship and is incredibly loving. She met my 75 year old father for the first time yesterday and greeted him like they were old friends.
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
I believe that May would be happy in a home either as an only dog or with one other placid but playful pup. May craves human companionship so I think she would be best in a home where someone works at home or is in the home the majority of the time. I feel that May wouldn’t enjoy doggy day care with lots of other dogs. May has met children and is a little timid and therefore she would be best with adults or teenagers.
May is housetrained, beautiful and so much fun. She loves to play games and with toys but equally enjoys a snuggle in bed or on the sofa while watching a movie. She will paw you if you are not giving her enough attention! May is a wonderful person and it is easy to connect with her, in less than 48 hours, we already feel we have a really super bond.
May looks like a thin Labrador type dog but half the size of a true Lab, she also isn’t food obsessed like some Labradors are. She is fully grown but needs a little bit of weight on her.
My husband and May are already really close, so please show an interest in May before we become a family of 4 dogs!!
