This little man is Mafra and he is a lovely boy with a fabulous character.
He has a short silky, smooth brindle coat and a lovely face, and reminds us of a old fashioned collie cross.
He is medium sized and he loves to go for walks and is very affectionate to everyone including kennel maids and visitors.
He gets on well with the other dogs he shares a kennel with. A real sweet little man and we think he would like to live with another nice kind dog for friendship.
Mafra could live with a cat.

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.
