2 year old female Cross-Breed available for adoption

Fluke is a 2 year old female Cross-Breed. She is fostered in Norwich Norfolk. She was a pup bought in lock down whose family could no longer keep him due to going back to work. He was then passed to another home who had cats.

She is not ok with cats which put them also in the position of having to let him go after a few days. She is a sweet little lad who is mixing well with other dogs in his foster home. He is cautious when meeting strangers and needs a little time to trust but is then a super affectionate lap dog.

Fluke lived with very young children in his first home but due to his caution of meeting new people we would be looking at no under tens so they are old enough to understand they have to wait for him to go to them and not impose themselves on him.

Fluke travels well in a car and is ok to be left home alone for reasonable periods of time. He could live with other dogs but is also used to being an only dog. When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog.

If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle-in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs).

The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period. Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm. Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted.

Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer. Retractable / extendable leads must never be used on our dogs. Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.
