Sophie is a 3 year old small Mastiff x. She came to us very worried with a very large mass in her groin. This turned out to be an untreated hernia and luckily our vets were able to successfully operate. Sophie has grown in confidence but she still find the world, particularly strangers daunting. She enjoys the company of smaller dog but can be very intimidated by larger dogs. She would be best suited to an adult only home with a patient owner who will slowly build her confidence. She can live with a smaller dog. We have no history of her around cats but would be willing to bring her to the home to help introduce her to a resident cat if the home was right for her. Sophie is an affectionate and playful girl once she knows you. She doesn’t need a huge amount of exercise but does enjoy her walks. Although Sophie may need a bit more help settling in than some other dogs, she will be very worth the effort. She has become a firm favourite with the staff and volunteers and will make a wonderful companion in the right home.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £200.
