11 month old crossbred female available for adoption

Adele is an 11 month old female cross. She is welcomed to Norwich Norfolk. She was recently entrusted to us from a private shelter in Romania.

Her mother came to the shelter when she was pregnant, so Adèle never experienced neglect or cruelty. Adèle is a sweet and friendly girl, extremely cuddly and affectionate.

Adèle lives well with other dogs but could also be the only dog ​​in the house. Adèle loves children and would be happy to live with children aged four and over.

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a sliding leash. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and not trust you, and you won’t know what situations might upset your dog.

If your dog panics, a slip leash is the only way to keep 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 him well (longer for nervous dogs). The slip cord should ALWAYS be used during this installation period.

Even once your dog is settled, it is safest to use the leash in situations where your dog may be afraid (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the veterinarian) and in situations where unexpected triggers may occur (e.g. around a bonfire). night).

Nervous dogs may still need to wear a leash as a backup safety measure. The drawstring is a safety device and should NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the leash to put pressure on the dog’s neck is harmful.

If your dog pulls on the leash, we can advise you on training methods that prevent damage. Once your dog is settled, you may consider using a harness (with the sliding leash) if your dog is comfortable being handled when adjusted.

Most harnesses are not waterproof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer. Retractable/extendable leashes should never be used on our dogs. Adopted dogs must be picked up from the shelter and transported directly home in a crate.
