Sidra is a beautiful big Mastin girl with a short cream coat and black masked face. She was adopted and arrived in the UK (South Devon) in the summer of 2018.
She now needs to be rehomed because her main carer is not fit to take care of her anymore.
Originally, she had been found abandoned and taken to a pound in the North of Spain a few months before coming to the UK.
We are looking for a home with perhaps just her and owners that are experienced with handling larger dogs and no children
She can live with another friendly dog
Her Best Points :
Sidra is a very loving dog that loves cuddles and has been a great companion for the dog she lives with, although she is protective of him. She is also very maternal towards puppies. She is affectionate, calm, and good behaved at home, obedient and a great guardian of her house.
Foster Report :
She is very loyal and very affectionate, always lying at our feet.
She is active and is easily excited, she loves to run, but can be a little boisterous if not reigned in.
Sidra normally plays well with most dogs off the lead, but she is dominant, and she is very protective of the dog she lives with, so when another dog wants to play with him she will display hostility towards it.
She is timid of anybody she does not know at first and will bark (only bark) at people to stay away. Sidra’s bark/growl is enough to scare anyone who does not know her. This is a bonus in regards to home security.
But, once a person has been invited in by us or sat down with us, she then identifies that person as part of the pack and gives them so much affection.
She is especially fearful of children at first but we have friends children who she accepts regularly.

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.
