Pointer Cross, 10 Years Old
Sheila is a ten year old female pointer cross, Date of birth 7/2/2010.
Sheila was rescued from a grim pound in central Spain. We don’t know her background but it’s safe to say she won’t have had it easy. Things are really tough for dogs in these parts of Spain in particular and she will have had a long and tough 10 years so far. She’s now with one of the lovely shelters we work with in the north of Spain waiting to travel to her new home.
She gets on very well with male and female dogs. She is a very happy dog and follows you everywhere, she is a quiet dog and she loves to lie on her comfy bed.
With people she is very sweet and affectionate, she also likes to go out to the enclosure, she is very obedient and comes as soon as you call her within the confines of the shelter.
She can be anxious at meal times, she’s had a tough life and she’s worried where her next meal is going to come from. The shelter feed her separately and she would need to be initially in her new home, but in time she should realise that she doesn’t need to worry anymore.
We think she could live with cats who are dog savvy. She spent a couple of days in foster with cats and ignored them completely, although introductions should still be managed carefully.
Sheila has pretty nasty arthritis and sometimes shakes when she stands, one of her hips is very sore, and it shows when she sits down. She will have had a tough life, rubbish nutrition and sleeping on hard floors for 10 years, she really needs a wonderful home with people who will care for her and a comfy bed to lie on.
Sheila was rescued from the state pound in Argamasilla de Alba near Ciudad Real, central Spain. She has tested negative but she will need regular tests to ensure she stays that way, for more info, click here.
We normally ask for an adoption fee of £450 as a contribution towards our costs which are the same whatever age the dogs are, but given that Sheila is an older dog we could take £350 instead.
She is a gorgeous-looking dog, really pretty, the photos don’t do her justice.
