Jane is a small to medium sized crossbreed dog believed to be around seven years old.
We have what feels like a very long history with Jane. In January last year we were sent to investigate conditions at a private shelter in Romania and it turned out to be quite horrific and a traumatic trip. Jane was being kept in filthy conditions in a kennel with her long term companion Tarzan. We built them a lovely enclosure at a far better shelter and moved them to safety. We had been told that Jane was untouchable but soon found that this was not the case.
A year on and it was determined that she would come to the UK for a better life. She has adjusted beautifully to domestic life and is completely content to have spent the last few weeks of winter here in her bed by the kitchen radiator…… which is conveniently close to the fridge that houses the ham she loves!
Jane learns very fast. She cracked lead training in a single walk. She is comfortable being stroked by people she knows well in settled situations but doesn’t yet approach and ask for affection, this will come in time.
Jane will need a confident companion dog in permanent residence in her forever home. She could live with respectful children aged twelve plus. Jane is still a shy dog but her cheeky character is really starting to shine through and anyone adopting her will have the privilege of watching her flourish into the dog she should always have been if fate hadn’t handed her the cards she was dealt in her earlier years.
Jane fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Our adoption fee is on average £350, dependant on the dog, they are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
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).
