Betty is a 5-6 year old female Collie Cross. Pretty little Betty is a sweet, kind dog who just wants to curl up with someone. She has a brown and tan long coat and she stands at Approx 35cm and weighs 12.8 kg. Betty loves to sit on your lap. She is quiet and gentle. She would be a wonderful companion. We believe she may have had a loving home at some point as she appears well balanced and well covered, plus being sweet, loving and gentle.
We think that she has a cataract in one eye. She us a little sweetheart though. Betty has not been at the shelter long but she is a delightful little girl. Betty has tested low positive for leishmaniasis and is being treated with Alopurinol, a very cheap medication (This is non contagious and easily manageable and she will need 5 months supply of Alopurinol each year at £2.50 per pack for one month- the rescue will provide the first years medication free ). She will need monitoring every 6 months. Poor Betty has had a rough time as it would also appear that she may have received some trauma in her eye. She is currently being treated for this and she may be left with a scar that looks similar to a cataract. However, her sight does not appear to have been affected.

We can not home dogs fromePortugal to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough. Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
Adoption Fee : £225 – to be paid direct to the Portuguese rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account.
