This is Nina - her early days were about as sad as it gets. She was found in a field with her sibling a day or two from death, she could hardly walk.
On the day she was rescued it was a scorching day, she had been without water for a long time, she had ticks everywhere (her ears were full of ticks). As if that weren't horrible enough she there were mites so bad her skin had bald patches all over.
Sadly her sibling was lost despite being the bigger of the two. Nina was just 2.1 kilos and maximum 5 weeks old.
Now she has blossomed into a lovely healthy puppy. Playful...walks on a lead...cat friendly ...loves other dogs...can sit and go down on command with a treat. Clever... Loves her food...follows you everywhere....great in the car. Clean in the house with the door open...at night can have an accident. Does wees on command when taken to the garden . Can steal a sock or shoe but hasn’t damaged anything. Loves toys and chews and collecting in her dog bed.
She is great company. Will make a lovely family dog...on or off lead follows people.
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.
Her new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of a pup - basic training, toileting and getting used to noises and living in a home.
The decision to adopt a puppy should not be taken lightly - we have had puppies returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Nina will adapt and become a rounded dog. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of hard work.
Please only apply if you 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 Nina will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
