Winnie is a medium sized crossbreed aged around ten years old. Winnie was found as a stray and her microchip led her back to us as she was adopted from us several years ago and the adopters hadn’t kept her microchip details up to date and obviously weren’t looking for her. Winnie has settled well into her foster home and her fosterer says….. If you’re looking for a perfect, no trouble companion then Winnie is for you! She is such an easy going girl. Gets on brilliantly with dogs and has been completely indifferent to our cat. Due to her age and the need for a peaceful retirement home I would suggest older children only, although she’s fine with all ages. She loves the garden. She will sit out there for as long as you’ll let her sniffing the air! We have a morning routine now where we leave all the others inside and sit with a coffee and have a chat! Winnie is fine on her own for a few hours. No noise, no fuss. She has her treat and settles in her bed no trouble. I can’t say I’ve actually even heard her bark! It takes Winnie a few days to come out of herself, but when she does her little tail will wag as she seeks you out for some attention. She’s not really a lap dog, but she could easily turn into one in the right home with less competition from other dogs! She would definitely be able to live with a calm companion or two. Although she’s an older girl, she’s still quite spritely. She doesn’t need long walks and knows her limits…she will rest when she’s getting tired. She has the most beautiful, adoring eyes.

Winnie is fostered in Gravesend Kent.

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).
