Margot is a beautiful Catalan Shepherd medium sized girl. She has a blonde long, rough low-shed coat.
Poor Margot grew up and spent her whole life at a pound in the South of Spain until she was taken out and fostered in Spain a few months ago. From the beginning it was clear she was good natured but fearful. Everything was new to her! She has improved a lot but is still scared of traffic, loud noises, passing near children kicking a ball… She’s shy and wary with strangers, especially men who seem to intimidate her more, but she is making progress that we are thrilled about !
Margot is now in the UK and she is used to living in a house, she is housetrained and well-behaved at home. She is very calm, and she will be affectionate once she knows people, but she needs time to settle and trust people. Despite all, she is a very sweet dog.
Margot walks well on the lead, she doesn’t pull. She has a medium level of energy.
She needs a calm house in a rural environment, with owners who have experience with fearful dogs and can give her a few months to settle. She was fostered with another dog in Spain, and she is sociable and playful when she meets them during walks and at the park. However she would prefer to be the only dog in her new home.
So please apply for this lovely girl if you are experienced with shy dogs; no cats; and no children under 12 years old, and live a relatively quiet life in a peaceful area.

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.
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.
