Mouse is a sweet, gentle, young girl and with patience and kindness, she will be a loving and faithful companion.
She is medium size with a black, white and tan smooth, short coat.
Mouse came to the shelter in Portugal a very frightened little girl, hence the name. Within a short time, with patience and love she blossomed into a calm and gentle dog who socialises well with the other dogs and loves to be stroked and cuddled by the volunteers, and is learning how to play.
She is still a little frightened, so she would benefit from a calm loving environment in order to improve her confidence, to allow her to develop as a young dog, and we think that another dog in the dog in the house would be very beneficial to her.
But the reward we believe, will be great. She is now happy to be stroked, is affectionate and in the right home will flourish.
Her Best Points :
Gentle, but not yet reached her full potential so some Confidence building will be required in the first few months.
Foster Report :
Mouse is settling in, she is a real sweetie. She is a dream on the lead, she doesn’t pull and checks you are there next to her.
She is clean in the house, likes to lie next to you and is fine with TV, log-burner etc.
She sleeps quietly in a crate at night for 8 hours with no accidents.

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.
