TEGAN - NOT READY FOR ADOPTION YET

Foster carer update - 24 Jan. 2018 -

 

We are very torn, we absolutely adore her and she is perfect, however we are concerned that if we get deployed (we can be sent anywhere in the world) that we’d have to leave her behind. It’s not that we don’t want her (we love her very much) but we want to put her needs first. 
Tegan is doing really well, she’s been on loads of trips and is even coming on holiday with us next month. We’ve now got her mostly house trained, and we’ve got her going to training classes which has been working really well. She’s had her first groom and has put on 2.5 kilos so she’s looking much better. She’s even started coming for breakfast with us at a dog friendly cafe! 

 

Tegan arrived here a couple of weeks ago with another similar dog, whom we called Theresa - neither dog had been named or chipped.  The rescue that they both came from were told by the person that handed them in that they were litter sisters who had happily spent their whole lives together.  Both dogs had a major scrap with each other as soon as they arrived here and we have had to keep them well apart.  Also, when our vet checked them on the day they got here, she aged Tegan as about 4 and Theresa 7.  So their past reminds a real mystery to us.
 
It is very obvious though that they have had no training, no constructive exercising and zero socialization with ANYTHING.  Both girls will need very patient, understanding homes where they can be nurtured, trained and 'turned round' from being feral to pet dogs.
 
They are both improving here daily with the kindness and common sense of our lovely staff and volunteers.
