Dash is a small, white girl with patches of brown on her face and ears and back.
We think that poor Dash had a home but was abandoned. Dash is is an absolute sweetheart and is friendly, playful and loving. We cannot understand why she is here. She loves to sit on your lap and be given cuddles. She also loves to race around and have fun, so that’s why we named her Dash.
With her gentle soul, energy and interactive nature, Dash will make a rewarding companion.
In October last year Dash had a seizure whilst she was with the local fire brigade doing a photo shoot for a calendar.
She was checked by the vet and then taken into foster for monitoring as she had also lost a lot of weight.
Dash continued to have seizures and was put on an anti-seizure drug. Since she has been on this medication she has been fine and had no more seizures.
In foster she has blossomed into a lovely, friendly and loving little girl. She loves her walks. At first she used to bark at the cats but now she accepts them happily and takes no notice.
She gets on well with all the other dogs in foster.
Look past he health issues which are under control and you have a beautiful and affectionate little girl.
She has tested positive for low level Leishmaniasis, but this is now under control by receiving a ½ Tablet a day – which is very inexpensive (A packet of 28 costs £2.50. and she needs these for 5 months of the year). She will also need blood tests approximately every 12 months to check the leishmaniasis is still under control. Dogs can live long and normal lives if the condition is monitored.
Look at the photos to see what a wonderful girl she is and well worth it. She would make a wonderful companion and keep a smile on your face.

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.
