Luisa is an eleven year old smallish crossbreed. Luisa came into our care in 2021 from another rescue as she wasn’t progressing well there. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by her confidence as we are used to rehabilitating much more nervy dogs. In her foster home Luisa progressed well and after several weeks she was adopted. Sadly she has now been returned to us as changes in the domestic situation (ill health and carers going in and out of the house) really unsettled and stressed her and she became very unhappy there. Luisa is now settled back in a foster home and seems happier in an environment without too many visitors coming and going. She is still the timid and quiet girl that we remember and still seems to seek comfort from other dogs so would need a calm canine friend in her new home. She has previously lived with cats and is fine with them. Luisa still loves her walks and enjoys being out and about. She’s not a particularly fussy dog and is quite an independent little character. We would love her to find a quiet home with a doggy friend to spend her twilight years.

Luisa 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).
