Olivia is a small crossbreed aged around three to four years old. Olive was found in a cluttered yard behind some broken fences and other abandoned stuff in Romania. She had with her 6 very young puppies, probably born in that place. When scanning her it turned out she was microchipped and had actually escaped from a public shelter. The family were taken to the safety of a private shelter where Olivia could raise her babies. Olivia is now in a UK foster home and doing well. She shows signs of having suffered abuse in her past as she will cower and pee when approached by strangers or when arms are raised. With us she is learning to trust and we are now greeted with a wagging tail. She is still submissive but once picked up she relaxes and enjoys a cuddle. Feeding six pups that were already her size and growing rapidly has taken its toll and she is still a little skinny and out of condition. Olivia is the sweetest little soul and we can only guess at what she’s been through. She will need a kind and understanding adopter who will take the time needed to earn her love and trust. The time invested will be repaid tenfold as the lucky recipient then gets to meet the dog she is slowly becoming with us. Olivia can live with or without other dogs. She would like a quietish home environment with no children under the age of twelve.

Olivia 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).
