OUR ADOPTION FEE IS £400
Paul is one of 4 siblings who recently got their lucky ticket to start new lives in the UK.
They lived together in a bigger pack of dogs, maybe a pack of 15 dogs. All bigger and more confident that the siblings. They would run away but when covered would tolerate a cuddle. We knew if we didn't remove them they would be lost forever.
They all arrived into the UK and have gone to separate fosters. They are slowly adapting to home life and becoming braver each day. But there is alot to adapt to, from living 24/7 in a kennel, no walks or contact to UK life is a big leap and they need some time guidance patience.
They are learning and starting to enjoy life, they just need a bit more time to adjust.
Once adjusted they will be amazing family members.
With the right boundaries and guidance he 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 time required.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO MEET / ADOPT NOW PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS WE ARE A SMALL TEAM AND NEED TO PRIORITISE FAMILIES READY.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Paul
Where does Paul sleep at night?
Paul sleeps downstairs in our utility room.
How is Paul with current dogs/animals?
We have another, older, more confident foster called Rosa. Paul looks to Rosa for guidance.
Is Paul clean indoors?
We have had no accidents indoors but Paul has to be taken / encouraged to go out - he does not ask to go into the garden.
Can Paul be left alone?
Paul is fine to be left for short periods.
How is Paul out on walks?
Paul is a very nervous dog but he is learning to love his walks. He is still easily startled but quickly settles to walking again when something startled him.
How does Paul walk on the lead?
Paul walks very well on the lead. If he is startled he might pull a little to attempt to take flight but a gentle tug gets him going again.
Has Paul met with other dogs?
Paul is not at all aggressive, but is still nervous of other dogs that he meets.
How is Paul with humans?
Paul is nervous but is gradually improving with his contact with people. He is beginning to seek to be petted by people he knows but is very nervous of anybody new.
Have you noticed that Paul is afraid of any particular things?
When Paul first arrived he was terrified of everything, but he is gradually getting used to all the new sights, smells and sounds in his life.
Any other useful information
Paul is a gorgeous dog. He will make a fantastic pet but is definitely in need of someone who can be understanding of his nervousness which, I’m sure, will improve with time.
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
Paul needs a calm home with people who are prepared to take him out of his comfort zone and encourage him to enjoy being part of a new family.
