Crossbreed male from 3 to 5 years old available for adoption

Goggles is a male cross between 3 and 5 years old. He is welcomed to Norwich Norfolk. We met Goggles during our recent trip to the Botosani refuge in Romania. He was such a quiet boy and would hang in the back of the pen, but he was so gentle and gentle when we went into the pen to bother him.

Goggles is now here in the UK and ready to join his own home. Goggles is a placid boy who enjoys human company. He mixes well with other dogs but would also be happy to be the only dog ​​in the house. He could live with respectful children aged ten and up.

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 want to consider using a harness (with the sliding leash) if your dog is comfortable being handled when fitted.

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.
