MADRA @AoibheannJoyce @CJarchivist Yay! Do it! Do it! Do it! ❤️🐾

*Special (Foster/Forever home) Appeal* We're very proud of our "tricky" girl Eva today. She has just spent a couple of nights in foster with one of our kennel crew. She came to us from the pound completely and utterly shut-down seven months ago, terrified of absolutely everyone and everything. It was the saddest sight and one we see all too often. She was too scared to even go outside. We have spent the last seven months gradually building up her trust in us. And it's working! We don't know much about her past but we're sure she was never in a home in her life up until now. For dogs like Eva, getting used to a household environment can be very scary indeed. There are so many new noises and smells to take in and we were worried about how she would adjust. We are chuffed to say that she is doing amazingly well. She has her crate, her safe place, where she can run to if she feels overwhelmed. However she has also discovered the joys of relaxing on the couch! ;) She loves her stuffed Kongs and interactive toys. She gets excited when other dogs get fussed over but she's happier if there isn't too much focus on her. She does enjoy being talked to and will happily eat from your hand. Unfortunately our team member is heading away and no-one else is in a position to foster Eva so we are on the look out for an experienced fosterer for her ASAP. Eva is very gentle and waggy but she is also still very, very shy. She will need someone calm and understanding to help her on her journey towards confidence. Someone who will help her with toilet training (she is already crate trained,) becoming more comfortable with walking on a harness and generally building her confidence, working at her pace. She is calm and quiet so far in a home environment and loves running in and out to the garden. She is very much a collie though and has been known to do the "Collie nip" so she will need someone who understands her Collie needs. She's a funny little girl and we all absolutely adore her. Our team will provide full back up support and advice to anyone who can help Eva. It has taken seven long months to get her to the stage where she likes being around people and is comfortable being handled. She gets very stressed when she is placed back in a kennel after being out so we desperately want to avoid bringing her back to our shelter. She will need: * A calm resident dog to help her out. She has always been with other dogs and she relies on them. * A very secure garden, as she can't go on walks just yet. * A calm, child-free home with someone patient and kind who is willing to foster her for at least four weeks. We're not giving up on Eva...but we really need your help at this stage. We want to prepare Eva for a "happy ever after" home and that won't happen in our busy shelter environment.
