Our dogs need the guidance which other dogs provide so we are asking for experienced, committed adopters who have another friendly dog in the house. You must be committed to the patience and training required with all rescue dogs, as this can be a lot of work and we want to ensure adopters are fully committed so dogs do not get returned as this is very unsettling for the dogs.
Our dogs deserve better after all they have endured in their short lives.
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY YOU IF DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER DOG.
Sex: Female - not neutered
Age: 4.5 months
Type: Mixed breed
Location: Foster home Shepperton
Live with children: Yes - 5 years+
Live with dogs: Yes
Live with cats: Not tested
Special Requirements: Martha needs access to other dogs daily, she loves to play and deserves doggie friends, so either another playful dog in the home or daily play dates.
OUR ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN INCREASED TO £400 DURING SEPTEMBER DUE TO INCREASED TRAVEL COSTS.
This is Martha - 1 of 5 rescued puppies from Crete. She has been in a foster home in Crete but has not been walked or socialised except with her siblings.
Martha loves to play, she has alot of energy so needs 2-3 walks a day and an active home. She is very affectionate but will keep adopters on their toes.
She is very sweet natured and loves a tummy rub. She will blossom with the right home
She is fully vaccinated and microchipped, but is still too young to be neutered so adopters will be asked to commit to doing this as soon as she is old enough.
Please see below the write up from her foster mum, Martha is a super little girl. Just needs some guidance and continued training and will make a wonderful family pet.
Please only apply if you have another dog in the home or can guarantee daily access to play and are 100% committed to the hard work a puppy can bring, broken sleep, toilet training, socialisation, boundaries. The first week is very important and with the right boundaries and guidance Martha will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT IMMEDIATELY PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.
