Nemo is 4 years 8 months old, stands no more than 19” to the shoulder, & has come into our care because a change in her owner’s circumstances meant that the lass no longer had access to the 9 acres of land she had become accustomed to running free on, indulging in her favourite pastime of chasing bunnies. Her new situation meant that she was in close proximity to main roads, with no suitable local areas to maintain the exercise regime that she thrived on.
Nemo has obviously been well cared for, having spent all but the first nine weeks of her life with the same owner, by whom she was very much loved, & with whom she had the run of the house.
She has peacefully co-existed with a Golden Retriever & a GSD, & although initially a tad overwhelmed by my lot, & telling Annie off, (in a feisty, terrier sort of way – nowt nasty), she has quickly settled.
Nemo has a lovely kind face, (hopefully some decent pics will be forthcoming tomorrow, once she’s finished exploring & keeps still for more than a nano-second!), & is proving to be very affectionate. She also sits nicely for treats.
I took her round the block with the Harlow Hooligans earlier, & she was no problem at all on the lead, & exhibited the good road sense that we were told she possesses.
Nemo is not yet neutered, & will be going to the vets tomorrow afternoon for a checkup, vax & microchipping. We're informed that she was wormed & had flea treatment on 30th August.
As ever, SLR will be looking for the best possible forever home for this super little girl – please contact Jenny or myself if you believe that you could offer her the very special place in your home & in your heart that she deserves.
Thank god she hasn't come into me. I am a little dog woman ;D We had several enquiries for little Smudge and so Nemo will have a lot of interest in her. She is another little poppet. My heart goes out to her surrendering owner. They were so upset that Nemo was now restricted to a life of on-lead walks.
A dog is a gift in life. Love and protect it. _________________
