Becky is a 3-year old Collie Cross who is being fostered in Wiltshire. She was found hiding under a bridge with a horrifically damaged leg in Romania. Sadly she had to be caught using a pole type catcher and this left her associating any restriction around her neck such as a collar and lead with pain. Once her leg was amputated, she spent a long time in a pound which increased her fear of strangers. Her foster caters have worked hard to gain her trust and increase her confidence.
Initially, Becky was terrified of people and would not have a harness or lead on. Through patience and hard work of our fosterers, she is now happy to have a lead on and go for walks. She is very loving towards her foster mum and enjoys sleeping on the bed and having lots of rubs and cuddles.
Becky adores other dogs and needs at least one to live with for confidence and play. She lives with a variety of forty other dogs in her foster home and is more confident when with them. She is not great with some of the bitches but loves the males, especially the ones the same size or bigger than her. She loves to play but can be bossy. Becky is fine with cats and currently has cats in her foster home who she lives alongside with no issues. Becky is toilet trained and fine in the home and travels well in the car. Potential adopters should be prepared to spend a lot of time with her to continue improving her confidence and building a bond with her.
Becky is happy when on a walk and her missing limb does not hold her back. She currently enjoys running in to the back of her foster mummy’s legs though we’re not sure why but as she enjoys it, she should be allowed to continue doing this if she wishes to. Becky has had a traumatic life before coming in to our care but is now enjoying life. She does require a lot of love and patience but is incredibly loving once she trusts you. A large male dog is essential for her to live with to make her happy as can be!
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you. Becky is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in Hereford.
If you are interested in adopting Becky please read about our rehoming process and complete a Pre-Adoption form ( link here ) and one of our adoption coordinators will contact you for a chat.
