Jacinta is a medium sized crossbreed aged around three years old. We first met Jacinta in March 2023 during a trip to the Botosani public shelter in Romania. On our very last day she was actually giving birth in one of the crowded pens. After we left she was moved to a pen of her own where she raised her babies. Despite a massive queue of dogs waiting for our help we never forgot about Jacinta. At last she is in the UK and it is her turn to look for a loving home. On first meeting Jacinta is quite tense and shy but once you get to know her and spend time with her one to one you see the sweet and loving girl that lies beneath the surface. She gets on great with other dogs and is now initiating play with the dogs in her foster home but could also live as an only dog. Jacinta would be fine to live with respectful children aged twelve plus. She walks nicely on the lead and loves her walks and sniffs in the local woods. She’s very confident outdoors and happy to lead the pack. She’s good with other dogs although a little hesitant around strangers, but not frightened. She’s getting used to traffic when on street walks. She’s clean and respectful in the house and is now starting to collect toys to take back to her crate. She’s starting to chase a ball but not sure what to do with it once she’s caught it!. She’s starting to enjoy being groomed and will approach to be stroked. She does lovely happy dances when her fosterers return after short trips out. She just needs someone with some time and patience to continue her education.

Jacinta fostered Kings Lynn 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).
