Gorgeous unusual large girl Nora has a very gentle and sweet personality.
She stands quite tall and has a beautiful honey-brindle, long haired coat which is soft and fluffy, and she has a kind face. Nora came to us after being picked up off the street. To start with, she was very nervous but she quite quickly started to trust and she now loves human company. She shares a kennel with 2 other girls and they all seem to get on fine. She’s just started going for walks and is quite nervous when out, but this should improve quite quickly. She is such a loving, friendly girl. Who could not fall in love with her?

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 be activated from the link on our website.
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.
