Part of adoption
WE COLLECTED ROMA FROM A YORKSHIRE STRAY KENNELS AS AN EMACIATED NEGLECTED STRAY WHO WAS SUFFERING FROM MANGE. HER PHOTOS ABOVE SHOW ROMA'S TRANSFORMATION INTO A HEALTHY AND HAPPY DOG. LOVE AND TLC FROM PEOPLE THAT CARE MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THESE ABUSED AND TRAUMATISED ANIMALS.
Roma has bene in a foster home for five weeks and is doing amazing. She is unrecognisable as the sad, broken dog that arrived. All our rescue dogs are from local stray pounds in Yorkshire. If you feel this lady is the dog you are looking for and you can meet her needs then please click on the "ADOPT ME" button at the bottom of this page after reading the details below. This will take you to an application form to complete. Roma is a super special young lady. We ask people to think carefully prior to adoption. Owning a dog is a lifetime commitment and needs careful consideration.
INFORMATION ABOUT ROMA FROM HER FOSTER MUM, LOUISE (PLEASE READ)
Roma was very subdued when she first arrived but has soon come out of her shell. Her skin is almost fully healed and she has been putting weight on well. She is lovely, affectionate and sweet. She adores other dogs and has been great with every dog we have met out on walks and in the home. She is house trained and sleeps all night in her own bed but does like to be close by and would love to sleep in her adopters bedroom. Now that she is coming out of her shell we can see a cheeky character shining through. We feel she may not have had the chance to experience being a puppy and is learning a lot from scratch. She is inquisitive in the house and is learning what things she is allowed to play with. She loves her toys and play time in the garden. Roma is generally good on her lead but can get over excited when she sees dogs in the distance. Now that she is beginning to play, she mouths like a puppy in play and is learning boundaries well. It may not be appropriate for her to go to a home with younger children because although she is gentle and sweet she is quite silly and clumsy when she plays and could easily knock a child over.
It is important she has enough exercise and new adopters continue with her training and socialisation so that she grows into a well rounded dog. She is energetic and playful and will entertain herself with your belongings if she is bored, so it is important she goes to a home that can give her the attention and exercise she needs. Once she has had a walk and play time, she is happy to sleep for hours and loves cuddles. We are building up the time she is left alone and new owners will need to continue to do this as it is likely she will have separation anxiety until she settles in fully. It may be months before she can be left for longer periods and it is important new adopters understand this and are willing to build on this gradually.
