Sweet Rita arrived 22nd January and went into her foster home, she has been a good girl adjusting to her new surroundings.
Rita arrived from Northern Greece and her life has not been what we would have hoped for her, with no future as a loved pet in Greece she spent a long time as a stray trying to survive on the streets. She was cared for by some kind ladies in Greece but no hope of finding a home until we started to work with them and offer a life line to the UK.
We do love helping puppies but being able to help adult dogs brings much joy to the team, they have survived and endured so much and to see them blossom in the UK is so rewarding. We just need to find her forever home now.
Rita is 3.5 years old, she is a small medium sized lab mix type, she is neutered and a loving sweet girl.
Below is what Rita’s foster mum says about her.
If you’re keen to adopt our sweet Rita please check the criteria and complete an application form. 🐾❤️🐾
Dogs name : Rita
Where does Rita sleep at night ?
Rita sleeps downstairs and sleeps through the night. She has taken charge of the sofa and rightly so as I’m sure she has never felt that comfort before .She has slept through peacefully and been dry through the night.
How is Rita with current pets?
Rita is living with two large dogs and 4 cats.
She has quite a chilled character and doesn’t really take an interest in the cats. She would prefer to ignore them.
She is living fine with my two dogs but isn’t very fussed. I think she could take or leave them to be honest.
Is Rita clean indoors ?
Rita has had a few accidents but she is getting used to a new space and found the garden a little daunting at first. Now she is feeling more settled she has been absolutely fine.
Can Rita be left alone ?
Rita has been left with my two dogs and cats for up to 2 hours and is fine. I am unable to watch on a camera but she was very pleased to see me on my return and the house was fine and dandy and all dogs happy.
How is Rita out on walks ?
Rita walks like a dream. She walks on a lead and collar and is fairly confident. She pauses at new noises and cars but continues without a fuss. She loves the woods and meadows and her nose is immediately to the floor taking in all the new smells.
How does she walk on the lead ?
Rita walks well on lead and is a pleasure to take out. She has travelled well in the car as well and hops in by herself.
Has she met other dogs ?
Yes and is happy to have a sniff and move on. She is also happy to live with my two larger dogs.
How is Rita with humans ?
Confident and happy to say hello to everyone. Not over exuberant and just comes over with a wagging tail for a sniff. She seems to like my smaller children and is happy to have a fuss and gives them a kiss.
Is Rita afraid of anything ?
Nothing in the house. Hoovering wasn’t a problem and regular busy household noises don’t phase her at all. We are a large and busy family so have been going about business as usual and she has taken it all in her stride.
Any other useful information ?
Rita has been a dream and for a mature dog coming from the background she has had this is quite something. Rita is clearly appreciating the home comforts and love being shown and in the short time we have had her you can see her personality coming through slowly but surely. I feel Rita could live with or without dogs as she isn’t reliant on them for confidence. All this girlie craves is love and a sofa and of course her dinner and breakfast and for this I feel she will give so much love and be a fabulous family member for whoever is lucky enough to have her.❤
