Callie is around 9-10 months old, she’s a beautiful Romanian shepherd type cross.

Callie came to us recently from the Botosani public shelter in Romania when she had spent all of her life up to that point.

She was massively undersocialised in her puppyhood, she met very few people and interactions with people were very limited.

She’s a very sweet and gentle girl, she gets really excited to see us and she enjoys a fuss when she’s getting one, although she can sometimes still back off or skit away when approached, but we are working on that and she’s getting braver all the time.
She loves her walks, and walks beautifully on lead.
She needs a confident adopter who will be happy to work with her, to continue with her socialisation and building her confidence.

She loves the other dogs in the foster home, she can be quite playful but also loves to snuggle up with them, she really needs to live with another confident dog as she looks to them for guidance and she gets a lot of comfort from doggy company.

She had not been cat tested and could live with children over 12.

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).
