Negra is a beautiful 10 year old female Pointer. She was taken to the vets by her hunter owner, along with Mara to be put to sleep because he no longer wanted them. Luckily for them, the shelter were able to step in so they are safe and sound while they find another home.
They lived together with their hunter although they are living separately at the shelter at the moment and are both sociable with other dogs. She is very obedient in the shelter and walks very well on her lead too. She’s a really lovely girl and quite calm. She just needs her retirement home now!
Negra can be a little bit dominant with food, it’s likely she’s had to fight for food her whole life to get what she needs so she is being fed separately and should be in her new home until she learns that there’s no need to worry about where her next meal will come from. She has a mammary lump which will be removed when she is spayed.
UPDATE: Negra is currently in a lovely foster home in Yorkshire. She may be 10, but nobody told her that! She’s still very fit and active and looking for home who can take her for lovely long daily walks. She’s a keen hunter with a decent prey drive and loves birds and rabbits. She walks nicely on a short lead but still needs work on a long line and recall. She adores her walks and keeps up with the younger dogs in her foster home.
We’re not sure what happened in poor Negra’s past but sadly she still doesn’t have problems trusting men so she’s looking for an understanding family who can work with her through this, or a female only home would be perfect for her too. She loves women and is very friendly even when she doesn’t really know them.
She’s great with the cats in her foster home. She also lives with other resident dogs but we think she would be well suited to being an only dog as she likes to have her own space. She would also do well with a dog of a similar age who needs a companion but perhaps not a full on play mate which she would find intimidating.
She’s a very sweet girl who’s definitely not had the best 10 years and is now just looking for a retirement home who can help her overcome the fears she has been left with, teach her that she doesn’t need to worry anymore and show her what love is.
