Mel is a lovely liver chestnut coloured girl with a white chest and paws. She is medium sized and stands at 47 cm and weighs in at 13kg, she has a happy, loving nature and the volunteers all love her. She is always happy to see you and loves people and attention. She socialises well with people and dogs and enjoys playing games with the volunteers. She enjoys being groomed and generally soaks up all the attention that she can get.
With her loving disposition and interactive nature, Mel would thrive if she was offered a warm and caring home. She would be a lovely addition to any family.
Mel hasnt been tested for young children or cats but we can try to do this is required.

FOR DOGS COMING FROM OVERSEAS
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the
dog- microchip, passport, vaccines, tests for S European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from Spain 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.
ADOPTION FEE – £ 275 – to be paid direct to the Portuguese rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account
Can live with other dogs
