Leonor is a medium sized crossover aged around five to six years old. She is roughly collie sized. Leonor came into our care a few weeks ago from the Botosani shelter in Romania. Whenever we saw her during our trips there she was always to be found perching or lying on the roof of her hut. Initially when she arrived here she would search frantically for somewhere high to get onto. Sadly it appears she had led a life that requires being at a vantage point that you can see what’s coming at you and she was going to take a while to get out of that mind set. I’m happy and relieved to say that she rarely looks for high places to rest now and is very often to be found lying on beds on the floor and is completely relaxed about it. It’s possible that she will revert back to that need to feel safe when she is adopted but has proven that she can get past it. Leonor is a quiet and shy girl who likes to blend into the background. She walks beautifully on a lead but will need to gain confidence out and about as there’s so much she’s been hidden away from in her past in the shelter. She would ideally need another confident dog in her new home but could settle without if given a little extra time. She is not at all interested in the cat! Leonor is a very kind and gentle dog who would like a quietish home environment but could live with respectful children of ten plus.

Leonor fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Adoption Policy

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog. If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle-in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.

Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.

Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted. Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer.

Retractable / extendable leads must never be used on our dogs.

Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.

Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure. All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
