Poor baby, Michaela spent the first 7 years of her life tied to a post outside a henhouse until a dog rescue convinced her ex owner to give her away. She was fostered in April 2019 by a family with 2 small children, 2 other dogs and 2 cats.
Her Best Points :
She is living with dogs without a problem and she is very good with the cats. She is active despite her age and has a great recall.
Foster Report :
The best thing about Michaela, or Maika as we call her, is that she’s extremely affectionate with the family, especially the children, and how obedient she is. She loves cuddles, belly rubs and hugs & naps on the sofa. She loves kisses too.
She has also become really good friends with our oldest dog, who doesn’t like most dogs.
Maika is absolutely calm at home – we joke she’s almost another piece of furniture, except when she barks to let us know there’s someone at the door. She is friendly with our dogs and our cats. Actually, she loves playing with the cats although not all of them want to play with her. She chases them to play with them, never to hurt them. She can be left alone for short periods without a problem. She’s completely house-trained. She can also travel very well by car, she’s very calm in the car.
Maika loves being outdoors, she’s still quite active, but doesn’t like to walk on a lead and barks at other dogs while she is on the lead. That’s her only issue. On the other hand, once she is off lead the problem disappears. Her recall is perfect, we only have to call her once and she runs towards us.
Although she barks at other dogs when she is on the lead, she has no problems with other dogs in general when she’s off lead.
She likes to play and run around with other dogs, but she has to learn to remain calm when she sees other dogs on the lead. She pulls more when she first gets out, so she uses a Halti anti-pulling harness.

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.
