Don't Know



Tara is a 5 year old (ex breeding) entire female looking for a new forever home. She is in date for vaccinations and is microchipped.
As she has spent her life in a kennel/stable it is unknown if she is housetrained.
She has lived with male dogs before, but is untested with cats.
Tara is a very sweet, friendly girl so could potentially live with teenage children who have grown up with the breed.

Tara will need to be spayed once she is in a foster or forever home – we WILL NOT put her through spay surgery whilst she in a kennel.

Tara is in kennels near Southampton.

Beautiful 5 year old Tara

I had the pleasure of meeting this friendly nervous girl yesterday who had been used and abused for breeding purposes and know tossed away as she is too old 😢 now she has found herself through no fault of her own in kennels.

She a little sweetheart 🐾🐾

Nervous of noises but we passed trucks cars and bikes she didn’t react she was just a little scared. Keeping her on a short lead gave her much more confidence and she walked lovely right by side.

More to follow as we get to know this little bundle of cuteness 🐾🐾

She walked with Bruce in the way back too without any problems 🐾🐾

Tara is still patiently waiting for her new forever home. She is a 5 year old ex breeding bitch. Tara has spent her life living in a kennel/stable so has no experience of living in a home environment but 2 of our lovely weekend volunteers have recently taken her home for a few hours and she settled well after initially being a little apprehensive.
Tara travels well in the car,walks nicely on the lead and is unphased by other dogs- she could live with a neutered male . She would be fine with teenage children(resident or visiting)

Tara is proving a firm favourite amongst the volunteers as she is such a sweet, easy little girl,she just needs a home that will give her time to adjust to a “normal” life.

If you feel you could offer her the home she so deserves please fill in a form via the website
Please don’t overlook her due to her age, she will make a wonderful companion ❤️

Tara is in kennels near Southampton.

I took Tara out for a very wet walk this morning and she was a superstar. I can’t believe she’s not found her forever home yet.

She walks nicely on a lead, is happy to accept a fuss and was unfazed by walking down a very narrow part of the Test Way that was dripping wet and very overgrown. She stopped a few times but with some gentle encouragement she walked through the undergrowth and carried on.

We watched the traffic go past for a few minutes and she wasn’t bothered by it at all. I can see a definite improvement in her nervousness from just a few weeks ago when I last walked her.

She’s a small shep and a lovely girl. She would make a wonderful companion.

Tara is in kennels near Southampton and her details - plus an adoption form - is on the GSRS website.
