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

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.
