Mimi – 7 year old female Pomeranian

Mimi is a 7 year old female Pomeranian. She is fostered in Hingham, Norfolk. Mimi is a ex breeding dog – she was bought by her previous owner as we assume her breeding days were over, unfortunately the family who took her came to the decision after many months that she needed a different home.

GREAT NEWS! This Dog Has Now Been Rehomed

In her previous home she had a dental and 32 teeth removed – she has a few left and vet records have been sent. She is in good health . Mimi is a delight in her foster home, she lives with multi dogs and gets on with them all, she does not play or interact in play with them as yet though.

She adores her fosterer and will sit with her as soon as she gets the opportunity, she loves nothing more than to be fussed, she tolerates grooming – she is such a happy contented little girl. Mimi wants a home where she will be spoilt rotten, where people will be home for a good part of the day, she will share you with other dogs but will not play with them – she would be happy with children over 10 who are used to dogs and is not cat tested but would possibly with work be ok with cats.

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 it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up 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.
