Paddy & Shyla – Norwich Norfolk. Once upon a time there was a little puppy who got abandoned at a public shelter in Romania. She was shy and she didn’t trust people so nobody wanted her and she grew up in that shelter. She was always picked on and bullied by other dogs it was like she had an invisible “victim” stamp on her forehead. Eventually she got a chance to move to a foster home in the UK and was given the name “Shyla”. The foster home had a multitude of dogs and they also picked on her. No matter where she was placed there was always a dog that would be mean to her, but without other dogs she would fret and panic and the rescue simply didn’t know how to help her. Then one day a dog that looked just like a bigger version of Shyla moved into her foster home and Shyla loved him instantly. Where Paddy went Shyla followed and no dog has ever picked on her from that day forward. Now we are faced with a huge predicament. Rehoming dogs in the current financial climate is so difficult….. asking anyone to take on two dogs together who are both a little quirky is nothing short of a miracle. Although we would not expect two adoption fees for two dogs that we have requested to stay together. Paddy and Shyla have formed a beautiful bond and her dependency on him has turned her life around. They also both get on with cats and could live with other dogs. They could happily live with respectful children aged twelve plus.

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).
