Although a very big, strong girl once Scarlet gets to know you she loves a cuddle with you and expects a lot of fuss to be made of her in return! She was in kennels for a long while before she gained a really wonderful home which she has thoroughly enjoyed for almost 4.5 years so we really don’t want her to stay in kennels for long now that she has experienced just how wonderful home life is.
She was originally a stray dog only 6 months old who was so very scared and lacking in confidence when she initially arrived years ago. A lot of time was spent building up her confidence and getting her to trust people. One particular gentleman really took to her and she to him and a strong bond developed as the months went on.
It was a fantastic day when she was able to go home and live with him and his wife. Arrangements were also put in place for Scarlet’s ex kennel girl who had looked after her to continue to take her for regular long walks twice a week. This she has done for all those years and even now she still sees and walks Scarlet regularly whilst she is in her new rescue kennels. Scarlet loves seeing her and they still have great times together.
Her ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’ took her on her daily shorter walks. They provided the vital components for Scarlet, patience, lots of love and attention and a fantastic quiet home life. Scarlet in return gave so much back as if to say thank you for giving her such a wonderful new life. She has come on in leaps and bounds over these years and is a different dog from years ago. She is now a happy and confident dog. A similar home would be her goal!
Sadly her ‘Dad’ who she was so devoted to and respected has died. Her ‘Mum’ who loves her so much too is not now well enough to care for Scarlet on her own though. It is heart breaking for all concerned.
Scarlet needs to find an equally understanding home with someone (or a couple) who is/are patient and extremely experienced at handling strong dogs. It will take some lead in time to get to know her and she you before she can go to a new home. Once she does she will be your devoted companion and she is so worth taking time to see how lovely she is.
She needs a quiet home where she can settle down again and enjoy a lovely home life with a fully secure garden. A busy home with lots of people coming and going will not suit her. The home must be pet free and child free too. She will pull towards other dogs if she sees them so you must be capable of holding her.
If you feel you can offer all that Scarlet requires and can spend time getting to know her please do get in touch with us. She is now in new Rescue kennels and doing brilliantly but we will assist them in helping her to find a wonderful home. She really is so worth it. She always wins over everyone who ever look after her. They enjoy walking her and she gets a fuss and cuddles from all of them which she thoroughly enjoys. She has gained a new sofa in her kennel so enjoys lots of cuddles from the girls there! She had great fun when she had a bath in the heatwave as you can see below. After a run around the field covered in shampoo she enjoyed a good soak and run down!
She really deserves another lovely home soon please so that she can enjoy all the home comforts that she loved! It is such a shame that she is not enjoying home comforts and human company full time. Scarlet just loves being with you.
Full support and back up will be given to help Scarlet settle in.
Please do consider her!
Scarlet loves being out and about on a walk with you.
