This girl has come a long way since being with us but she is still a terrified wreck… however we believe she has come as far as she is going to in the kennels and are going to start looking for her forever home! It must be the right home for this girl as she is terrified of the world. From grumbling at us at the back of the kennel to now coming to the front wagging her tail and walking into the lead herself 🥰 we are proud of her!! She is going to ideally but not essentially need an experienced home with nervous dogs. Whoever adopts this girl MUST let her go to them and this could take days but it could take a month. It has taken me almost a month to get a waggy tail out of her on a walk. Any little noise spooks her and she will bolt. Give her the time and patience and she will come around for sure, now she will come over to me still scared and lean into me for fuss but when she is done I leave her be as we do not want to send her backwards by forcing her! All in her own time. Saffire is beautiful and I can see she wants to do things but just doesn’t know how. I know in the right home who will let her do things in her own time she will thrive and you will see a different dog a few months in 🥰 she is four and a half, she is a GSD x lurcher but she is much smaller than your typical lurcher. She is a bit hit and miss on the lead as something will spook her and she will want to be off and is a bit zig zag behind you but she is getting better. What we don’t want for this girl is for someone to rush her and she snaps at them because this dog is not nasty she is just terrified. You can see she wants to play with a toy but is just frightened to. She will follow me around if I start to walk away, but then you turn around and she doesn’t like eye contact. This makes her sound like a nightmare but she really isn’t and I am so proud of her and how far she has come…. everything is coming from fear with her but I know she will change in a home environment that will work with her and she will know she is safe! She will need to be the only pet and someone who is home most of the day now and after COVID. No young children but we would consider 16+ if very dog savvy and know to let her come to them and if she needs space to give it to her 🙂 to see her tail wagging at me now daily in the mornings when I arrive just gives me a big smile on my face. Whoever is interested in adopting Saffire will need to visit regularly to get her used to them before she will be able to go home. She likes her meals but isn’t too keen on treats at the moment. A wonderful girl even through her terrified eyes you can see a shining light waiting to come out 🥰😍
