Cat is a small cross breed aged around eighteen months old. Cat’s story is an all too familiar one in every public shelter in Romania. Litters of puppies get taken in by the dog catchers or abandoned at the gates. They get taken in and promoted for adoption. Sadly there’s always one or two from each litter that watch their siblings leave and then grow into adulthood in the shelters because by the time the next home becomes available for a puppy the ever flowing tide of pups has provided younger, cuter babies that leave instead of them. It is terribly sad for those left behind who grow up lacking all the home comforts their siblings are enjoying in other parts of the world, far away from the country where their lives started so poorly. Cat is a text book case of a puppy left behind who is now playing the familiar game of catch up as she is belatedly introduced to domestic life. She’s doing very well but still a little unsure who to trust so anyone taking her on will need to understand that the relationship will take a little time to establish. Cat is now loving her walks. She would benefit from another dog in her forever home but could get by with lots of dog socialisation on walks or with visiting dogs. She is a sweet and plucky little girl who likes to be around people when she trusts them. She could live with respectful children aged twelve plus.

Cat 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).
