Poor Kanella is only 7 months of age but has had a sad life so far.
Kanella was in a small enclosure, with her mum Laura and brother Albert.
Their owner was a hunter, but had no more use for the dogs he just wanted them gone. He asked a friend of ours to take the dogs. We agreed to pay to foster for them and prepare them for travel.
When our foster mum went to collect them the owner said the female Kanella was going to be owned by his daughter and we could not rescue her.
Laura and Albert moved, and eventually came to the UK and found their homes. We did not know what happened to Kanella until recently. Eventually, the owner came and said his daughter no longer wanted her. After some back and forth we remained firm and took her. Kanella was living on a balcony, no walks or comforts, a child would play with her now and then, but otherwise she was on her chain.
Poor girl was a bit shocked when she first went to foster but, being young, she adapted very quickly and is now a fab little lady learning the ropes.
Kanella only has a little stump tail as her owner docked it very short when she was younger.
With the right boundaries and guidance Kanella 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 hard work required.

Here is what Kanella's foster mum has to say:
Kanella came to me, with no knowledge of socialisation.
Her life was playing on the balcony, with a child. When time was up, she was put on a small chain, with her entrance to an outside cupboard, which was her place.
The fmaily didnt want her so she came to me, initially she had no idea how to be in a home, or to be with other dogs. But she quickly learnt the ropes.
Kanella has learned how to be a dog, and not a toy. She knows the rules of being inside, of a home. Loves to play, good with other dogs. She loves her walks, and is very curious of everything, so still tends to pull a bit, but not strong.
Kanella is clean in the house, a good learner, she is very affectionate.
Kanella is still a puppy. Will attempt to chew, but a simple 'no' she stops. A great little girl for a family, or couple. She needs her stimulation time as energetic, but not over the top. Loves her cuddle time.
