Description

FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME

Kiwi is 2 years old and came to us via another charity in the north who were part of a bigger rescue of other dogs.
Kiwi has spent all of her short life living on an allotment in a shed with little human interaction and recently had a litter of pups. Sadly only one survived and she had used all of her energy feeding him so is very underweight 😢

Kiwi is still looking for her forever home ❤️

She was originally reserved but after going for some short home visits with the lovely volunteer that was going to foster her it’s been decided she really needs to be rehomed with another dog as she lacks any confidence in the home environment .
On the visit she struggled to come in the house, preferring to stay in garden or run to the gate 😢
Before she came to rescue kennels she spent her short life on an allotment so a house is an alien environment for her.
Since being in kennels she seems to love the company of other dogs so we feel this would be the best chance for her as other dogs will hopefully give her the confidence she needs.

Kiwi is a firm favourite with the kennel staff and volunteers, she is incredibly sweet, walks nicely on the lead and loves her food!
She’s 2 years old , chipped and in date for vaccinations.
She is entire ( any home will need to agree to spay her ) so we could only consider a home with a calm neutered male or spayed female where it is a quiet environment for her .

If you feel you can offer Kiwi the home she needs and have the time and patience that she will require please fill in a form via the website (home checks will start up again after the New Year)

A foster home with another /other confident dogs would be welcomed too for her .

One of the lovely ladies that works at Southampton kennels spent some time with Kiwi today in her kennel. How gorgeous is this little dog?
She’s come on so well since coming into rescue after losing nearly a whole litter of pups and living her short life in a shed on an allotment . She would love a foster or forever home.
We think she might be ok with a calm neutered male or ok as an only dog.
She’s 2 and not spayed. Vaccinations have been started up again.
If you have a Kiwi sized space in your home please consider her ❤️👇
