You may remember that we have had our little Tilly with us for some time while we tried to find her her perfect home.
Tilly is a very complex little girl with a high prey drive but a heart of gold. After several unsuccessful rehomes, she sadly came back to us several times over the course of a year. In the end, we sent her to a rehabilitation center, where they helped show her how to be a happy dog, less fearful, and to learn how to enjoy her life.
Tilly was originally surrendered to SAR as her family could no longer commit time to her issues surrounding resource guarding due to having a young family. She was originally placed in foster care, where her character shone through as a very loving little girl who was also a bit of a ‘thief’. She loved carrying around a tea towel wherever she went, and though she would love to show her foster mom her prize by jumping up on her knee, it must be on Tilly’s terms. She snapped a few times and unfortunately bit her owner when her prize was attempted to be taken from her.
While in the centre it was noticed she was in pain and was diagnosed with hip dysplasia on her right hind leg, which will, of course, need ongoing treatment and possibly hydrotherapy and physiotherapy.
You all very kindly helped to pay for her rehabilitation, and we are beyond thrilled to be able to let you know that Tilly has at last found her forever home with one of her helpers at the kennels she was staying at.
Thank you all for your support for Tilly. We couldn’t have done this without you, and she is now living the life she deserves!
Can you offer one of our dogs a home?
We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.
A home check will be required, along with an adoption donation of between £200 to £500 which helps to contribute to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs. Your case handler will advise the cost of each dog
Please have a read of our adoption process so you can prepare for how we will work with you and the possible dog. We also offer help and support for you both in the future with our behaviourists, Lisa & Amanda
