The adorable Tara has been in Kennels since April 2016 we desperately need to find her forever home - to read more about her please read on....
Hi Everyone. My name is Tara and I am 7 year old girl with a black and tan coat. People tell me I’m a beautiful girl but I’m just little old me really..... and I am desperate for someone to love me and who I can love right back with all my heart, forever.
I’ve not had the best time recently I used to belong to people who were unkind to me. I really wanted them to be my friend but they did horrible things to me and tried to drown me in a big bath of cold cooking oil. I don’t know what I did wrong and I was very scared..... I want to trust people again but please forgive me if I’m a little wary of you at first – until I get to know you and understand you will not treat me badly and I don’t have to be scared anymore.
I was a lucky girl and someone rescued Me from those horrible people!! I ended up in Manchester Dogs Home for a while where they had to wash my dirty fur every day. To be honest I found this quite scary and had to have medicine to make me sleepy so I could be washed every day. I feel and look so much better now though so it was worth it!! Although I will still need to be bathed (Boo...) but only occasionally (hooray!)
Right now I am living in kennels, being looked after by Cefni German Shepherd Rescue. I am safe from harm now and have been given all my vaccinations to keep me a lovely healthy girl. Its ok here but it’s not quite home. I sit in my kennel and dream of someone coming and taking me away to a quiet, warm, safe and loving home where I can go for long walks and snuggle up next to my very own special person who has enough love and patience to help me to learn that not all people are bad..... I’m a keen learner !!!
The lovely ladies who come to see me in my kennels spend a lot of time watching me and learning all about me and the things I like (and don’t like !). I like to chase a ball and I LOVE treats (but everyone does don’t they??) I think I’m quite clever because I can do a few commands when people ask me nicely. I must admit I do get a bit excited sometimes and apparently I’m not actually supposed to pull when I’m on a lead and I’m supposed to come back EVERY time I’m called! I’m trying really hard to remember all of this and I’m sure if you decide to be my new forever friend it will be something we can work out together.
Another thing I would like my new family to help me with is my food.... I don’t always feel comfortable with other people around my food. It’s MY food and I’m scared someone will take it away and I will be hungry. The ladies who come to see me in my kennel are trying to make me understand this isn’t the best way to behave and I really am trying. I hope that if I’m lucky enough to get the loving family I dream of, that they will be prepared help me understand they aren’t going to let me go hungry or use food to torment me and make me sad again.
Cefni think the best home for me would be one where I will be the only doggy. I do get a bit noisy around other dogs sometimes because I’m not really sure about them. And because I have been through so much in my life they also think a child free home would suit me better so I can build my confidence and not be pulled about. Oh and I’m really sorry but cats..... I know I shouldn’t chase them but...... hey isn’t that what doggies do???? No?? Oh dear... sorry.
Thank you for taking the time to read all about me. I really really am desperate to find my forever home and be part of a loving family. I look longingly every day out of my kennel - hoping someone is interested in me and will take me home. If you think you could be my forever family and have the time and patience to help me learn to trust again then PLEASE contact the lovely people at Cefni and they will tell you what to do next.
I’m looking forward to meeting you! Love from Tara xx
