MADRA Good morning from Ashi He’s a sweet-natured collie gent of about 5 yrs-with a wagging tail as you pass his kennels💙… https://t.co/6m4tKUVAiZ

Our stunning lurcher Saoirse arrived to us, 110 days ago, utterly trauamtised beyond on words. She would cower away from us and shake uncontrollably if we entered her kennel. She was terrified of being touched. She was the saddest, most pitiful girl. We have spent the last 110 days showing her that she can trust us. We have made progress! She now goes on walks and enjoys using her nose to sniff out all the exciting scents. She loves playing with toys and throwing them around the place. Saoirse shares a kennel with her best pal Noddy who has played a huge part in helping Saoirse feel more comfortable around us and more relaxed on walks. They play in our big pen and have fun doing zoomies!? Once play-time is done, they both choose to pile into the same bed and snuggle up together for a lengthy sleeping session.? Saoirse is still very frightened of new people and will do her best to run away from them. She's not comfortable being touched, although she will let us put a lead on her for walks. She will eat from our hands now. She wags her tail when she sees the kennel crew.❤ There is only so much we can do in a shelter environment. We feel that Saoirse is ready to move onto an experienced foster home so that she has more individual attention. She really needs someone who can work on her and give her that one-to-one attention she deserves. Full back up support will be given by our trainer, so if you are thinking you would like to help her but are worried about how to this, we will provide a full plan for her to help build up her confidence. ?The most important thing is that she gets to experience life in a quiet foster home. ?She will definitely need a friendly resident dog to help her adjust to home living. Another houndie would be a huge plus! ? She is easily frightened, so she is a flight risk...therefore a 100% secure garden is a must so she can't jump the walls or escape if she panics for any reason. ? She needs a patient, kind, compassionate person who will accept where Saoirse is at right now and won't put any pressure on her or put her into situations where she will be overwhelmed. Her fears won't be a quick fix. ? Saoirse will need an adult only foster home as children would terrify her. ? She will need to go to a quiet area where there isn't too much noise and traffic. We know her requirements are very specific, but it's important we find the right foster home for her needs. We're all very attached to her and we know, with the right care and with enough time,Saoirse will start flourishing. We just need to find the person who is willing to help her shine.⭐
