Arley is a lovely one-of-a-kind mix of GSD with Carea Leones, a Spanish breed similar to Border Collies or Australian Shepherds. She has a distinctive spotted back, short coat, and she is much smaller than she looks like in pics!
She was found abandoned in a village in the North of Spain on December 26th 2018 and taken to the shelter that same day.
Her Best Points :
She is young and very active, with a high level of energy. She is super affectionate, not shy or fearful at all —she loves people, she runs to strangers for rubs and cuddles.
Arley is a remarkably intelligent dog that responds very well to training. She has huge potential and with the right amount of time and training, she could be taught any trick, or obedience or agility!
Her mix of a GSD and a shepherd breed means that she has the most obedient and loyal nature and is constantly attentive to the person next to her, she just won’t lose sight of you and will be a very devoted dog.
Foster Report :
Arley hasn’t been fostered yet. The workers at the shelter where she lives tell us that she is very stressed at the shelter, she needs daily exercise and, most of all, contact with people. However, the moment a volunteer takes her out she becomes a much calmer dog.
She walks very well on the lead, doesn’t pull at all and is constantly looking back to check on the person taking her for a walk.
She is sociable with dogs but prefers dogs her size or bigger.
She is not compatible with cats or livestock, she hasn’t been taught to socialize with them.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
