All about me

  • Name: Brenda
  • Gender: Female
  • Approx. age: 8 or 9
  • Breed: Collie
  • Description: This is Brenda, who came from one of the two sets of hoarded dogs that came into us last month. Brenda is perhaps the oldest of the 17 dogs who came from the hoarding situations and a member of the hoarded group that had the hardest time of it. Some of this family were so bad, that the authorities had to make the difficult decision to put some of them to sleep there and then, as they were in such a bad way. The remainder came here to us and all are proving a tough bunch to gain the trust of. Brenda shares her kennel with the most difficult of all these dogs and is actually a model of bravery and sociability in comparison to him. Brenda seems to understand about people and will come up and take a treat form your hand and let you touch her. We know she will come on if given a chance. All that she needs is a nice enclosed garden, a garage or a dog house to sleep in, lots of lovely food and treats and the space and time to approach you at her own pace. She would live quite happily in a very secure back garden until you can gain her trust enough to take her on walks. She's good with other dogs, so wouldn't mind sharing at all. Brenda is around 8 or 9 years old and wants so little from life - nice food, a warm place to sleep and some quiet companionship without any pressure. MADRA will happily provide all the back up desired if anyone could find it in their heart to offer her a space and help her in the next stage of her recovery. Brenda is your chance if you have ever dreamed of helping a dog truly selflessly, as we can't guarantee that she will ever become a lap dog, but we do guarantee that any little thing you do for her will be truly appreciated and will change this little old dog's life after eight or nine years of hardship.
