FOR ADOPTION IN CORNWALL/DEVON
MILLY-MOO Crossbreed / Barak Hound Cross
Size: 45cm shoulder height approx - medium size dog
Age: 1-1.5 year approx
Temperament: lively, friendly, but insecure until she gets to know you better; more at ease with women than with men, but everyone in the family can now handle Milly in her current foster home; needs time and can't be forced, let her come to you rather than push her, loves the outdoors and being with her people
Child friendly: in her current state young children could overwhelm her and she could unintentionally hurt a child just by being too lively and full on. Older, dog experienced children may be considered. Milly is currently living with a teenager in her foster home.
Dog friendly: yes
Cat friendly: not known
Other animals: got used to goats and sheep in her current foster home
Behaviour/Training needs: her foster family is teaching her basic commands and is working on her recall. there is still some socializing to be done as prior to being in her foster home she has not experienced the outside world. this will take time and will be a very rewarding experience
Housetrained: she is clean in her current foster home
Bloodtested: before pet travel she has tested negative for heartworm, ehrlichia, lyme disease and anaplasmosis, passed her health check before travel and here in the UK too, been treated for a minor ear infection which has cleared up
Location: home fostered in Cornwall
Ideal Home: rural or semi rural providing good space. The garden needs to be very secure. Most important though are the people Milly will be sharing her life with. They need to be active, have lots of time to give to Milly and be sympathetic to her needs, be kind and patient and not be looking for a dog who will instantly fit into their life style. She would do really well with another playful /not too strong willed dog as a role model and for company
Hello my name is MILLY-MOO and this is my story.
My story starts on the streets in Bosnia. I was an abandoned stray pup fighting for survial and at high risk of being poisoned, shot or ending up in a kill shelter, because many people do not like strays like me around here. Bojan, the Bark Ark rescue shelter owner was on a call out to collect some other street dogs and found me too. So he wanted to assure that I am safe too. I was only little then. They put me in the Bark Ark foster shelter where I grew up, cared for by a lovely lady called Rada. Unfortunately during lockdown spay/neuter was not possible and I became pregnant by accident. When it was discovered after lockdown I needed an emergency sterilisation and my puppies were aborted. This is a standard way of dealing with pregnancies here as more puppies are an absolute no-no. I came through my surgery very well and am now looking forward to starting my new life in a faraway land called England where Paws2Freedom has promised to take care of me. For the first time in my life I will be truly wanted and hopefully someone will love me enough to give me my very own forever home.
Because I grew up in a shelter I have not seen anything much of life. Nor did I have any contact with men until my transport day came. This made me very fearful of any new situations and also men. I prefer women and men scare me. I will need someone really sympathetic who understands me, talks gently to me and is patient until I gain trust. When I arrived I spent a few weeks at Paws2Freedom where I started gaining trust with Mark which helped me a lot. I tried to attach myself to Susan, but by Mark becoming my main carer I learnt that men are ok too.
Once I find my bearings I am quite a high energy dog who is very agile. I will need a very secure garden with high fences
If you would like to apply for giving me my forever home, please complete an application form as a first step. But please bear in mind that I am advertized on other sites too and I hope that you understand that there may be more than one application to my name by the time you have completed yours for me.
Please enjoy my photos. They show me after my spaying surgery in Bosnia and in the shelter where I lived which was a safe place away from the big main shelter, as well as photos here at Paws2Freedom and in home foster. There are a couple of little videos too where you can see how fast and fun I can be and in my foster home where I meet some of the animals.
If you would like to support me and dogs like me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Your donation will help so much and every penny counts. Rescuing dogs like me is a big rescue mission for such a small charity and we can't do it without you. If you could mark your kind giving with ‘Bosnian Dogs’ your funds will be put towards my costs or that of another dog like me.
Thank you so much from my hopeful little heart and fluffy paws ~ Love, Milly-Moo ♥
