Dulcie is looking for a special home. She’s an 18 month old girl with some issues resulting in aggression, and she has bitten several times. She guards her food, her bed and her place on the sofa. Ongoing work and training is needed, and she may never be ‘cured’ but her behaviour could be managed by avoiding triggers and taking advice from behaviourists.
She also needs stability as she’s already been moved around a few times in her short life, including a spell in the sanctuary. The last thing she needs is to be moved on again so we’re looking for a special person to take her on a foster-to-adopt basis. This person must have experience, be willing to listen to and follow advice & guidance from qualified behaviourists (which we will provide) and not give up on her. It is vital that instructions and advice are followed.
The other side of Dulcie is very sweet – she’s very affectionate, likes her cuddles and enjoys playing. She loves her walks and going in the car.
Because of her aggression we won’t rehome her with children, no matter how dog-savvy they are. She gets on with other dogs so we will consider a one-dog household.
So if you have the time and commitment she needs and are willing to put the work in you may be who she’s looking for. If you have already submitted an application please comment below to register your interest. If not please submit an application form, available to download from the files section on here or from our website.
Please note that a homecheck will be required and the owner of the sanctuary will want to have a discussion with potential fosterers before a decision is made.
Her adoption fee will be £450
HOMECHECK DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS: a check of the interior of your property will be conducted remotely via video conferencing; therefore please do not apply if you do not have the facilities for this (i.e. smart phone/ tablet device/laptop). Photographs will NOT be accepted.
