Bonnie was found alone with her brother near Florentina's home, we had assumed dumped, however their mother came back and was able to be successfully brought into the yard to safety. Their mother is a feral dog, very withdrawn, she has never known kindness from humans and it took her a while to settle into shelter life, but thankfully she was able to transition and is now relaxed and happy and looks forward to all the comforts we can give her.
Bonnie was a shy pup, who then became more outgoing. Lately due to limited visitors and a very sheltered life she is again a little shyer and will need a very experienced adopter, once who has experience with a street dog, who can take the time needed to introduce Bonnie to walking on a harness and lead and all the new things that come with a move to a different home. We feel a home with another calm and balanced older dog would be ideal to help her settle and for companionship so will not consider rehoming Bonnie as an only dog.
Bonnie will only go to a home with adopters around for part of the day, although a little older she is still very much a puppy who has missed out on a lot of things in her short life due to the limitations of her rescuers with so many other dogs and cats to care for. Bonnie will need time to adjust properly and will not do not do well being left alone for extended periods of time.
Training classes are a requirement for all our dogs, and Bonnie would be no exception. She will require to be toilet trained to some extent when she arrives and introduced fully to walking on a harness and lead as this has not yet been done. She will require an adopter who has been through this transition already with another dog, and who can demonstrate a force free rewards based approach to introducing all things new.
Bonnie has been fine around all the cats she has met so far, so can live with a cat in her forever home. At this time we are looking for a children free home, or one with older children (12+ years old) who can offer a hands off approach for Bonnie.
If you can meet the requirements for our little Bonnie and can offer her the perfect forever home, then please complete the adoption application form and someone will contact you.
If you would like to be a doggy sponsor then please see How You Can Help for further details. All our dogs love toys and treats and would welcome these from our Amazon Wishlist.
