Cami and Bady – 3 year old male Daschunds

Cami and Bady are 3 year old male Daschunds. They are currently in a pound in Northern Spain. As you can see, these poor boys are very frightened and we have no idea what their past experiences have been… we don’t know if they were abandoned by a hunter, but what we do know is that these boys now need a caring and understanding home to help them learn they can enjoy life and feel safe.

They are extremely nervous around people, and can feel easily overwhelmed by new people approaching them. This will only get better with patience, time and gentle affection, and this is something that just isn’t possible in a pound environment.

As they depend on each other so much, they are looking for a joint adoption, ideally with those who have experience of this breed or similar. Their criteria for adoption is fairly specific, as we can see they will need a lot of time and experienced training to help them adjust. Please only apply if you are a dog experienced home, ideally with fearful adult dogs who have come through rescue, and you are not a full time worker.

A fully fenced garden, in a rural area is a must, as these two lovely boys may be very frightened by the noise and people of a city. No cats or small furries, and given we know nothing of their past experiences, we are looking for adult only homes, or those with teenage children experienced around nervous dogs.

Cami and Bady have been seen with other dogs, and they were fine with them in a pound environment, but due to the energy and time they will require, they should be the only dogs in the home, or could share with a stable and calm resident dog. As they are currently in the pound, we have not had the opportunity to see these boys outside this environment.

We do not know whether they will be housetrained, know how to walk on a lead, travel in a car, be left home alone, understand the manners of a home, or be used to any of the noises that come in a home environment. Please consider carefully that with such an unknown history, they may need complete training in all aspects of home life, and given how scared they are, this could take many, many months.

They are afraid and shut down, and will first need to decompress, gain confidence, and understand that there is a kind and loving side to humans, before any other training can begin. This takes a huge commitment, and they really need to be with someone who understands the patience required in helping such nervous dogs grow in confidence. With the right guidance and enough time, we have no doubt that these boys will make wonderful companions.

Anyone who knows this breed knows how strong-minded and affectionate they can be, with a great love for using their noses and exploring the outdoors. They are waiting for their second chance having been let down once already. They can be rehomed to England and Wales, but NOT Scotland. Can you help?

TeLuMa’s Dream

For further details regarding adopting a dog from TeLuMa’s Dream, please email Olga, Jessica or Greta at telumasdream@gmail.com or visit our website www.telumasdream.co.uk. We are a Spanish voluntary organization which rescues primarily dogs from a public pound in Galicia, in Northern Spain, where the dogs instead of living, are trying to survive. 99% of the dogs are strays or have been abandoned by their owners on the street. The dogs are a variety of breeds and come in all shapes and sizes! We are funded entirely by donations and work hard in our free time to help rescue and rehome as many dogs as possible. With your help we can continue our work and provide food, bedding, medical supplies and care for the dogs until they are well enough to find their forever homes. All dogs rehomed via TeLuMa’s Dream are microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, deflead and spayed/neutered if old enough, if not the adoption contract will stipulate that this is done as soon as old enough and this will be checked with your vet. We re-home dogs to England and Wales and in some exceptions also to Scotland, if it’s specified like that on the dog’s description. Our aim is to pair each dog with the right new owner, ensuring that it will be safe, cared for and loved for the rest of its life. Therefore all potential adopters will be asked to complete a questionnaire. Also a homecheck is carried out and a video call to adoption. Please note that we never reserve dogs in advance of our full process having been carried out. We reserve all final decisions on compatible dogs until after the home visit, so please bear in mind that your application will be considered a general application for adoption until final confirmation has been given by both adopter and Teluma's Dream. We offer a full rescue back up service to all our adopters and post-adoption support, which includes a Facebook support group and free behavioral advice.
Please also be aware that all dogs who are adopted through TeLuMa’s Dream remain part of our extended family throughout their lifetime. We ask for regular updates during the settling in period following their adoption, and for an ongoing quarterly updates and follow ups after that for the duration of the dogs whole life. We are committed to our dogs and our forever families and this allows us to support you and your dog, but at the same time, knowing how the dogs are, receiving updates and keeping us informed is also the reward for all the efforts, time and costs that are involved in saving each dog. If you feel happy with this level of communication then we would be happy to hear from you.
