Zoe is a Pomeranian type crossbreed ages around two years old. We originally met Zoe on a trip to the Botosani public shelter in Romania over a year. She was a ball of terror hobbling around on three legs as the fourth was broken. When we returned six months later she’d had an operation on the broken limb but it had been unsuccessful and the leg was still pitifully twisted. It was agreed that she would have the leg removed and then travel over to the UK for a bit of rehab followed by a forever home. On arrival here in her UK foster home she was still terrified of people but in true Pomeranian grit and determination she masked it with feistiness! Several weeks in and she’s learned that we’re actually ok to be around and has even started to approach for fuss! This poor little dog has suffered so much pain in her life and it’s incredible to watch her now hold her own in the rough and tumble of pack play. She can play fight with the best of them and does so with bold enthusiasm. Zoe will need an adult family and ideally someone experienced with shy dogs. Although she’s lively with us now she’s understandably not trusting strangers until they’ve had time to prove to her that they mean her no harm…. and that they provide her food! She will need at least one other dog in her forever home and although she will be shy initially she will soon show her forever family the sturdy stuff she’s made of! Nobody is going to win this girl over in an instant because she’s simply experienced too much, but with love, patience and understanding you will see the true plucky little character emerge.

Zoe 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).
