Franny is a medium sized crossbreed aged around two years old. We met Franny back in March when we visited the Botosani public shelter in Romania. She was in a sorry state, skeletal, filthy and terrified. She’d recently been split from her sisters who had badly attacked her. By the time Franny travelled to us a few weeks later she’d gained weight as she’d no longer been fed amongst bullying siblings that didn’t allow her to eat. She was still terrified of the prospect of human touch and spent her first days here studiously avoiding us. Thankfully Franny has an inherent cheeky and playful personality and she couldn’t resist joining in the antics of her foster siblings for long. Franny is now a cheeky, comical and fun loving girl who is ready to look for her new home. She is still wary of new people but is pretty devoted to those she loves. She still doesn’t really understand why humans want to stroke her but she will allow it and in time she will learn the value of it. Strangers touching her is still something that’s frightening so anyone coming to see her needs to understand that her trust has to be earned over a period of time before stroking her should be attempted. Franny will need at least one other playful dog as a companion in full time residence. She loves her walks and her toys and just has a lovely enthusiasm for life really. New noises and situations still alarm her but she will gain confidence over time and just needs someone with enough love and patience to see her through. She will need a home with no children under the age of twelve.

Franny 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).
