Maggie is a small to medium sized crossbreed of around six years old.

Maggie came to us several months ago from the Botosani public shelter in Romania. She had been in there almost all her life and her existence in the dire place had left her shut down and afraid of humans.

It’s taken along time but Maggie is now a cheeky and confident girl in her foster home. She is stall afraid of people she doesn’t know but is comfortable being touched and groomed by those she knows. She is not yet asking for fuss or attention but this will come later in a more one to one environment. Maggie has met cats and was fine with them.

Maggie needs a home experienced with nervous dogs. She is enjoying her walks now and would like quite an active exercise routine. It is essential that Maggie lives with at least one other dog so please do not apply unless you already have a dog full time in your home. Maggie could not cope with the noise and unpredictability of small children but would be ok with dog savvy children of ten plus.

Maggie is fostered in Camberly, Surrey.

Our adoption fee is £300, they are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).

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).
