Kiki is a medium sized crossbreed of around eight years old.
Kiki was rescued from a puppy farm situation in Wales in 2018. The dogs were living kind of free range/ferally in a field and were never touched. Since then Kiki has been with another rescue but we recently offered to help with four of their “untouchable” dogs as they simply weren’t progressing in a kennel environment.
Whether it’s a result of previously spending a lot of time as a mum or not we cannot tell, but Kiki is very much a “fusser” over the other three dogs that came to us with her. She worries if they are not altogether and will definitely need another dog when she is rehomed. Kiki is an intelligent girl who is still getting used to human contact but is now really starting to understand and enjoy it. She now enjoys her walks and walks well on a lead.
Kiki loves her food and this will be an asset when she moves on as her friendship can be bought with bonios or gravy bones.
Kiki has wasted the majority of her life either being used as a breeding machine or in a kennel she is now enjoying life in her foster home but we would dearly love to see her in a home of her own. Please only apply if you have at least one other dog in permanent residence.
Kiki fostered in 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).
