Milka is a lovely medium sized boy with a white fluffy short coat. This poor boy has been in the shelter for a little while now, and we feel it’s his turn to find his forever home. He came to us after being abandoned and was very nervous. It took some time to gain his trust but he is now a friendly, happy and playful dog. He still needs to gain confidence with new experiences. He loves to play with his fellow kennel mates, but can retaliate with male dogs if provoked. He likes going on his walks and has started basic training and is learning quickly.
We are looking for a home with a female dog only or no other dogs in the home.
Children would need to be over 12 years
Milka isnt tested for cats so no cats please

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.
