Sweet little Carmen is a brilliant all rounder and would make a smart first time dog or easily fit into an existing home with other dogs.

Carmen arrived at the Shelter, having been rescued from having fallen down a well. She was very scared and traumatised. She was also very thin. She has been at the Shelter since June 2019 and has blossomed into a beautiful, tan-coloured dog with white paws and chest and with darker markings on her face. She is a quiet, medium sized dog and would benefit from a calm home environment and some basic training. She responds very well to kindness.  Carmen loves her walks and being with people.   Carmen recently appeared in a calendar with the fire brigade and was a true star.

She would love a friend to live with we think

Whoever adopts this dog will have a beautiful, loving and faithful dog.

Her Best Points :

Loves cuddles, responsive to kindness and is calm

Foster Report :

When Carmen entered the Shelter, she was scared and traumatised. She had fallen down a well and was battered and bruised. Now she is a lovely girl that settled in very well and is very popular with all the dogs here.

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.
