Born in September 2015, Silka is a medium-sized, Cross-Breed female dog with a medium length coat. On the 22nd October 2015, someone from the municipality turned up asking us to take five pups. We explained that we had no room whatsoever. The next day, he came and left the pups anyway, saying they would be killed. The pups were temporarily put in a large cage as we had nowhere for them. The pups were born around 10th September 2015. The siblings are Hobart, Silka, Gigi, Idina, and Pepper.
Silka was adopted in the UK in May 2016, unfortunately, things did not work out, and she is now staying with one of our volunteers, until we can find the right home for her. She is a very affectionate and people oriented, but is desperately in need of some doggy guidance too. Having left her litter mates in the shelter, the transition away from them, has been quite stressful for her. Silka would suit a laid back family, who would ideally have an older, laid back male dog, that she can get this guidance from. She needs to go to an experienced home, that understands the needs of an adolescent female. She is very sound sensitive, so a quiet, countryside location would be ideal, and a very gradual introduction to new things is absolutely essential.
Silka is a bright girl, and learns quickly, though training is not required for the interim, as she needs to focus on settling into a new environment at her own pace. Her new home would benefit from having a nice sized garden, full of lots of interesting things for her to sniff and explore, as she is a very inquisitive young lady. Travelling in a vehicle will require gentle handling, and until she has built up confidence, any walks should be in a quiet and safe space, as she struggles with the noises of streets.
The ideal scenario would be for Silka to live in the Hampshire area, so that her current carer can be on hand to help with any training and behavioural advice, as a programme has been put in place to help with her development. She is fully vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated, and comes with her own pet passport.
