MADRA We are so grateful for your help towards our new outdoor puppy pen, they are having such fun! If you wish to donate… https://t.co/GtU6DGDILA
Janey is a beautiful 18 month old Malinois and she is one of our dogs who is finding kennel life the most difficult to cope with. Before she came to us, she was known to be wandering; living rough, scrounging for bits of food, trying her best to keep body and soul together, for many weeks before she could be caught. She had lived through such nastiness at the hands of us humans that even though she needed food and shelter so very badly, she still wanted nothing to do with us. When she eventually got to us at the kennels she was still very afraid, and was by now VERY pregnant. The poor thing gave birth to 10 babies within a week of arriving to her foster home with the wonderful Sandra. It is a testament to Sandra's loving care that Janey managed to deliver any pups at all, let alone 10! However the days and weeks on the road had taken its toll and Janey lost 2 of her babes. Worst still Janey's previous experiences had left her with absolutly no ability to cope with all that motherhood involves and despite the love and care she received at Sandra's hand, she just couldn't be the mammy she wanted to be. So Sandra and Sarah and Joan stepped in, as they have done in the past, and hand reared Janey's 8 pups. Janey was so heartbroken and indeed heartbreaking. She couldn't rear her pups but neither could she bear to be away from them. Mother Nature can be a hard task master at times. But now she is at last finding some stability in her life and the real Janey, the one who was hiding in there, behind all the stress and hormones and worry, is starting to show. Janey is a Malinois; a breed that generally does best in the hands of an experienced dog enthusiast. Combine that with her oh so very understandable suspicion of new people and you can see why we are looking for a very special home for her. Janey has started on a training program and has blossomed, even in these early stages. We still feel that an adult only home would be best for her, she doesn't need the stress of dealing with little 2 legged critters ;) A fully fenced, secure garden and someone home during the day is really important. A home where the folk have good dog handling skills and where they have lots of dog patience is a must if Janey is to reach her full potential. She is not terribly high energy and does respond very well to gentle training, plus she is super smart and eager to please. The reward of seeing this gentle, quiet girl recover completely from her trauma? Well, that is just priceless.................
