MEET JEMIMA. SHE'S NO PUDDLEDUCK! A DELIGHTFUL WIRE HAIRED LURCHER.
Jemima is a young lady down on her luck. This fussy lady is very sweet natured and friendly. Initially she can be very nervous of strangers. We found this loving girl at the stray kennels very underweight and hiding in her kennel. She does a little dance at the front of her kennel and really does enjoy her walks once she knows you. She is typical of her Lurcher breed and and would chase if off lead. She can be skittish when out and very busy and alert. Jemima is very affectionate, however will need time to build up trust with new people and strangers. She has had a few viewings and we feel that a few meet and greets would be necessary on a regular basis to build up confidence in her. She came into our care from the stray kennels and she was another sad dog who hasn't had the best life. Jemima is coming along leaps and bounds in our care and was originally a little timid and nervous. We are overjoyed at her progress and welcome enquiries regarding her adoption from Lurcher experienced homes.
THE HOME JEMIMA NEEDS
Jemima needs a home that understand the Sighthound Breed. She will chase anything that moves fast. So no small furries and caution is needed around smaller dogs too. Jemima has been good with otehr dogs but can be a little nervous. This also applies with people that she isn't familiar with. She has been extremely affectionate with our regular volunteer walkers. We are unsure how well she has been socialised and more assessments are continuing this week. This stunning girl has so much love to give. She needs time to settle in a home with someone who can offer guidance and patience for her to adjust. Enquires and applications are always welcome online.
We help many stray and abandoned dogs in Yorkshire from the local stray kennels. We are very active in the work we do and the welfare of strays dogs in the UK and mainly Yorkshire is of the utmost importance to us. We survive on very little funds and no staff, yet help many dogs and in particularly dogs in need of veterinary help and Staffies who are often left behind in the stray kennels. Please contact us for more details about any of our other dogs or to have an informal chat about the work we do. We welcome any visitors to the kennels via appointments to meet some very special dogs. We are now up to our absolute limit of intake dogs and are working flat out to sustain our rescue applications at present.
