Osa is a beautiful medium sized Griffon Terrier mix girl, with a fawn soft fluffy coat and black masked face and ears.
She was taken to a dog pound in the North of Spain in May 2017, abandoned by her owners through no fault of her own. She was fostered in September of this year and her transformation from a shy, wary dog to a wonderfully sociable girl has been amazing to witness!!
She is now not shy with people anymore, to the point she wants to approach people during her walks to greet and ask for a head rub.
Her Best Points :
Osa is a very affectionate, loving dog. She is very calm and obedient, and has a medium level of energy.
She is very sociable with all dogs, cats and people, and loves children.
She has adapted perfectly to being in a home, she’s house-trained and very calm at home, and she can be left alone.
She is living with dogs and cats without a problem. She actually loves napping next to a cat.
At the park, she approaches all dogs in a friendly and playful manner. She loves going to the beach to run around and play with other dogs.
Osa is very obedient. She comes to me as soon as I call her to get a good fuss, her recall is excellent so she was able to walk off lead after a month and she is very intelligent. She barely barks.
Osa loves walks, she used to pull but not anymore, she has learnt to walk on a lead and doesn’t pull at all now. She is used to travelling by car. The only thing she doesn’t like are baths – she doesn’t like water!

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.
