Pretty cream, short-coated, medium sized Podenco cross young lady. This is Gracie, she is fully vaccinated and spayed. Gracie is a very sweet natured dog who is super smart and hyper alert and she is looking for a new home because she has a prey drive and will chase birds, livestock, and bark at small children if she is allowed off lead.
Her owners cannot keep her on lead, and in the garden, so she has been able to escape when not supervised, so they think its best to find new owners that can keep her on a longline or extendable lead and have a garden with high fencing.
We are told that –
In her home, she is playful at times but otherwise calm and loving.
In the day she loves her walks, loves playing in a secure puppy paddock with a friend’s dog and enjoys running around in the garden. Evenings curled up next to you are just great (and she particularly enjoys watching birds and dogs on tv!) She always sleeps well and never wakes us up (loves her crate) and is house trained as she is a fast learner. She hasn’t lived with cats but think she would wind them up. Could (and possibly would benefit from) living with an assertive dog.

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 apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
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.
