Beautiful Nina is a young, medium to large, rough-coated, tan and white Podengo girl, who came to the shelter because she was found on the street.
The man who brought her in could not keep her because he is elderly and not in good health, but he managed to coax her to follow him to the shelter. 
He regularly comes to the shelter to take her for walks and when she sees him she is so excited.  We´ve nicknamed him the Godfather.  Nina was very scared when she first came to us but she has now blossomed into a beautiful, friendly and playful girl who loves her walks and splashing in water.  She still needs to gain more confidence and is not used to normal everyday things but this will improve when she has her own home and family to love. 
She loves other dogs and we will be looking for a home with another friendly dog to help guide her and give her confidence. She would suit an older couple as she is a calm girl.

Her Best Points :

Charming and delightful girl.

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.
