This super girl is Conchita.
Conchita is a large, beautiful, black and white girl, with a soft, smooth coat and a black patch over one eye. She is a lovely girl, who gets on with other dogs and cats. She likes to play and also likes to cuddle.
She was in the shelter for 2 to 3 years, but is now in Foster care in Portugal. She was very nervous when she first arrived in her foster, but has become much more confident. However, she will need help and guidance outside on walks.
Conchita was recently diagnosed with low level leishmaniasis, but this is being controlled with Alopurinol, a very cheap medication (£4 per month), a supply of which, will be sent with her. For more information on this condition, please read the article on the website.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been 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.
