Narla came into us at SSC from our friends at the RSPCA where she had recently been surrendered. Unfortunately, very little is known about her past.
She is proving to be a friendly girl with people and she gives a lovely greeting to her walkers each day. She loves to play ball, but isn’t good at returning the ball. She loves to go out and about.
Narla walks well on the lead and really enjoys sniffing the hedgerows when there aren’t other dogs in sight. She is not keen on other dogs, so when walked we ensure she has lots of space and doesn’t encounter off lead dogs.
Narla has not been out in our van yet, we will update how she travels once she has been tested.
Narla has seen the vet at kennels and was a good patient girl for her health check and blood samples. However, she was not so keen to have her nails clipped. Due to her reactiveness, we do not feel she would cope very well in a busy waiting room.
Narla has recently had a full health check including routine blood tests. All has come back clear and she appears to be in good health. When she came into us she was in season, so will need to be spayed in 3 months’ time. SSC will cover the cost of spaying.
Her skin was very red and irritated when she arrived. Being a Blue girl, we thought this may be diet related, so we put her onto a fish based dry food and the redness has calmed down and her coat is lovely.
Narla loves her toys and balls, she can become quite animated and focused on her toys. For this reason, we feel she would be best suited to a home with children aged 14 years plus.
She would need to be the only pet in the home, as she is very reactive towards other dogs. We have also been told that she does not like cats or small furries. Narla loves people and being close, so we feel she would love a home where she wasn’t left alone for long periods.
Narla has started her vaccinations and is due her second jab on 14.03.22, which will be covered by SSC. She is microchipped. Narla will need to be spayed in 3 months’ time and the costs for this will also be covered by ourselves.
She is in kennels in Worcester, but can be re-homed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her twice where she at that time.
There is an adoption donation of £120 for Narla and all money donated goes directly to helping all the seniors in our care.
