Ramona is being brave and is ready for her new forever home with an experienced adopter.
Ramona is fostered in Norwich, Norfolk and is a beautiful medium size crossbreed of around six years old.
Ramona was a long stay resident of the Radauti public shelter in Romania when we agreed to take her in around a year ago. She was so scared and shut down it has taken this long to get her to a level that we can now look at finding her the right home.
Ramona is a shy and nervous girl who will need some support from her adopters to help her further grow in confidence. She is beginning to accept human touch and enjoying the new experiences her walks are giving her. She can still be on high alert at times and is most comfortable when the hustle and bustle of the days goings on are over and everyone has settled down. Ramona gets on fine with other dogs both in and out of the home but prefers her own sleeping space. Ramona walks beautifully on the lead now and looks to her foster for reassurance. She will be looking for a fairly quiet and experienced home where she will have the time and understanding that she needs to continue developing into to the dog she should have always been. She will need the company of another dog in the home.

Our adoption fee is £300, 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).
