MADRA @sinead_lydon Looks fab, thanks for your support🐾
Brenda is a dog we consider a "tricky" as she came into us from another hoarding situation in 2016. She has been in the care of MADRA for one year and four months. She was deeply traumatised when she arrived to us and remained this way for months. Thanks to dedicated foster mum Sonia who first fostered Brenda and then she was transferred to the healing arms of Sinead. She has improved tremendously following her foster breaks and she now allows us to handle her and put a lead on her. She's an older girl around 10 years old. She's back in the kennels now due to unforeseen circumstances and we are really hoping we can find Brenda a calm home where she's accepted for her eccentric ways and where she can live out her days in a calm and loving environment. We won't lie, she's not an easy case but she has lived most of her life in a certain type of environment which we can't erase for her but that doesn't mean that she can't live a full and rewarding life. Leaving the only life she has ever known has left her with fears and insecurities but we believe that with a solid foundation of love, trust, and patience, Brenda can be happy.
Brenda likes....
* Routine. She trusts routine
* Company of other dogs
* Kongs
* Treats - she takes them very gently from your hand.
* Walks - once its part of a routine - she will settle especially on quiet, country lanes ; she has developed a love of car chasing but I believe this can be sorted by somebody who can give her time and gentle training and distractions.
* For a shy dog, she actually likes gentle massages...
Brenda dislikes ...
* Loud noises
* Television
* A change in routine
 
Somebody who would be home all day that could put in time with her training would win her over. ? She is such a lovely dog.
