Jasmine is an 8 month old female Cross-Breed. She is fostered in Norwich Norfolk. Jasmine came to us a few weeks ago from the Botosani public shelter in Romania.

Jasmine was quite timid and hand-shy but very quick to make friends with the other dogs in her foster home and intrigued by the bustling around of the humans.

Over the weeks she has become very comfortable around the people she knows well but is still timid with strangers.

Jasmine is inexperienced with the world outside and will need to continue to be socialised in her new home. Jasmine could live with or without another dog in her future family but will need to be allowed time to adjust to the changes.

Jasmine could live with respectful children aged twelve plus as long as they understand she needs to get to know them in her own time and they cannot force their presence on her.

Jasmine has done so well in gaining confidence in the short time she’s been with us and will continue to blossom in the weeks and months to come with love and patience.

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog.

If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.

Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and in situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a backup safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.

Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted.

Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer. Retractable/extendable leads must never be used on our dogs. Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.

We are a voluntary organisation with members from all over the world that have come together to help dogs in need, regardless of their location. To date we have helped dogs from Spain, Cyprus and Turkey but the majority of our work takes place in Romania where we have built up strong relationships with many dedicated rescuers before bringing the dogs to the UK and into foster care for rehoming.
