Skye needs a home !!

progress update: 21/04/2018

Well today I met a nice couple who wanted to meet me.
Helen wanted them to see how very scared of the outdoors wide open spaces I am.
And with a lot of tempting we went around the block for a walk.
As soon as I knew I was on the homeward stretch I pulled all the way to the back garden to get to my safety zone.
Tomorrow I am off to stay with Gemma, Stuart and Biscuit who are going to continue to walk with me in the woods and let me off the lead for a good run in the enclosed dog park.
Helen is going to take me over to Geoff’s for a run in his paddock while she picks up the horse poo.
And she has said she will take me to her allotments where I can get used to open space in a safe area.
She is crossing her fingers I won’t bark too much and annoy the other allotment people

progress update: 8/04/2018

Skye is gradually coming on with her lead training and getting used to the noise of cars etc.
She spent the weekend with Gemma, Stuart and Biscuit and had an off-lead run in the enclosed dog park.
She did very well in the woods walking on the lead and is now starting to pull ahead on it.
In no time at all she will become comfortable with the outside world.

Skye’s view of the last few days :-
Helen took me out for a lead walk on Thursday and Friday.
At first it was quite scary as having been in a shed the cars made so much noise.
I sat down and refused to move.
Helen stroked me and tempted me on a few more steps and there were so many interesting smells that I walked around the corner myself which I had a lot of praise for.
Helen said I had probably had enough by the time we walked around the block and I was glad to get back into the garden.
Jake immediately tried to round me up into a tidy circle……
On the weekend I tired myself out in Gemma and Stuart’s garden and had a walk in the woods and so many interesting smells that I completely forgot to be scared.
They are going to take me out for more walks this week!

Skye is a year old Collie who gets on with other dogs.
Having been kept in a shed she is gradually getting used to a lead and the world outside of the garden.
Very quick to learn and a gentle girl.

If you may be able to offer a home

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls / messages can usually only be taken during normal office hours Mon – Sat.

Emails and Facebook messages can usually only be responded to within 3 days,

so please be patient if you don’t get an answer straight away:

Helen is often too busy to explain how busy she is!

We usually only rehome within approx. 50 miles of the Bournemouth / Poole area
so that we can ensure the continued well-being of the dogs in our care.
We will only rehome further afield if the homes are exceptional.
We are NOT looking for just ANY home that is offered.
All potential homes will be assessed to try and ensure the best possible home
to cater for the differing needs of each individual dog that we rescue
